    Jamaine Burrell’s comprehensive work provides a fundamental understanding, building, and repairing your credit score. Have you ever wondered why you receive copious amounts of credit card solicitations in the mail? Why you can’t qualify for a car loan or a mortgage? If so, then Burrell’s book is the one for you.

    In the simplest of terms, your credit score dictates a great deal of your financial future – the higher your score, the better your credit. Burrell begins by explaining the elements used to calculate your credit score and then how to go about manipulating those elements to your favor. The emphasis of Burrell’s book is the importance of maintaining and monitoring your credit score, that, and understanding that there are several sources that provide credit scores including FICO, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Fair and Accurate Transaction Act. Credit scores are then differentiated into either standard credit reports or investigative credit reports.

    In general, credit reports can be sold to creditors, lenders, and other business entities, as well as accessed online. Burrell also covers the areas that credit reports can legitimately be used for including the following: medical information; rental agreements; tenant screening; and employment histories. If your credit score needs to be fixed, Burrell’s book provides helpful ways to identify building up your credit as well as methods that won’t help. Additionally, these useful pieces of advice include how marriage, divorce, and/or the death of a spouse will impact your credit.

    Through Burrell’s solid research and her ability to connect with the reader, she manages to tutor you in the tangled was of identifying credit professionals to assist you with any of your issues, preventing identify theft, and handling bankruptcy, if necessary. This book provides an excellent resource for people to begin learning about credit and preventing future mistakes or for those currently embroiled in credit problems to hopefully extricate themselves as painlessly as possible.

    I wish I had this book a few years ago. It would have saved me from a few problems I could have easily avoided, even though I thought I was Mr. Know-it-All when it came to credit and debt.

    It gives you the low-down on how credit scores are figured out, the agencies that do the reporting and how you can be in trouble based on the number of accounts you have, collection actions against you, past due payments and delinquent accounts.

    OK, so you’re faced with mounting debt. Relax. You can get back in the game by determining what is causing your growing money problems. The author explains in detail how to use debt-to-income ratio calculations to lower your debt in your monthly budget while including necessary savings in those budgets, as well as using credit counselors, negotiating a payment plan with creditors and other helpful methods.

    The book points out how to open safe accounts that will show potential creditors you can pay your bills and save money, and how you can correct inaccuracies in your credit information.

    Burrell details the different types of cards and loans to look for in order to maintain a good credit rating on your path to recovery. The more you understand credit, the better you are able to take advantage of the options available, the author explains.

    I bought this book and “Best Credit…” by Dana Neal at the same time. I read this book after “Best Credit…”, but should have read it first to get a basic understanding first. “Best Credit…” was VERY thorough and very detailed, but this gives a great overview of everything! Bottom line: read this book before any others to get an overview and basic understanding of things relating to credit.

    If you’re like me, you’re familiar with credit reports and maybe even FICO scores. But, if you’re like me, you don’t know the difference between a credit report and a credit file. You don’t know exactly how credit scores are calculated. And you don’t know about all the other types of credit collecting and reporting vehicles used to decide whether or not you get the job or medical coverage you applied for. How to Repair Your Credit Score Now provides the answers to these and many other credit-related questions you may not even know to ask.

    Burrell’s depth of research is impressive. Each chapter, from “What is a Credit Score?” to “Maintaining Good Credit” provides clear, detailed explanations that make it easy to understand credit and how it impacts us. And perhaps more important, they provide the steps and resources to take an active role in building, maintaining, and protecting our credit. For example, Chapter 3, “Credit Scoring Models,” explains exactly how credit scores are calculated, and Chapter 5, “Repairing Bad Credit,” dispels the myths and scams some debt `repair’ agencies use and provides real, concrete actions consumers can take to minimize damage from bad credit.

    Throughout How to Repair Your Credit Score Now, Burrell provides illustrative charts, resource contact information, and sample letters to assist you in building, monitoring, disputing, and protecting your credit information. It is an invaluable resource for any one wishing to take an active role in understanding and protecting their credit.

    This book is too much “theory” and not enough practical applied knowledge.

    I wanted some real assistance with real examples.
