I am using this to study for my DRE Exam and for my R.E. classes at college. I'm only 18 so this helps so much because I didn't know anything till I read this book! Super helpful for those studying or new to the R.E. Business. Loan types, exceptions, laws, house types, everything you need to know to prepare you. Useful diagrams and picture b/c I'm kinda a visual learner. Overall good book:)
