This book helps. It not only clearly conjugates 600 common verbs but then gives 5 example sentences in English plus the Japanese translation in romaji. The headers indicate to which group the verb belongs and whether it is transitive or intransitive. Helpful. The kanji is a nice touch. The book does omit the prohibitive form. (E.g. Don't sit there!) I tried BARRON'S 1991 J verbs pocket book. The type is too small. The above book is 6x9 inches so the type is easy to read. Finally, there's a list of 277 commonly used NOUN + SURU verbs with kanji. The book was done by a team of teachers in Tokyo who used feedback from real students trying to learn Japanese. I'm pleased with this book.
