Bracketing is pretty simple. You take one exposure at the recommended setting and then one under exposed and one over exposed. You can also do more exposures one 1/2 stop under, one 1 stop under, 1 2 stops under and the same for over. Most DSLR's can be set to do this automatically. It simply gives you a chance to get the best exposure under tricky lighting condtions.
Thanks, this explains it. But it seems the name "bracketing" is not explanatory.
