    Finally, A Book With Real Help

    As the President of the Association of Consumer Credit Counseling Agencies (AICCCA), I search for useful and responsible help for consumers who need help with debt. This book provides real and effective guidance for families wishing to resolve their debt burden. It is highly recommended.

    Better options elsewhere

    Instead of this book, I highly recommend getting and reading Eric Tyson's Personal Finance for dummies. His book suggests further resources. This Credit Repair book was a big disappointment

    Excellent book packed with useful information

    Steve Bucci¿s ¿Credit Repair Kit for Dummies¿ expertly covers a broad range of topics, providing information that is important for people to know regarding how to manage credit. Indeed, Steve¿s book really cracks the code on consumer relationships with credit ¿ understanding credit reports and what goes in them, how to build and maintain good credit, and how to improve bad credit and get out of debt. It is a fine, easy to understand resource to assist consumers in navigating through the sometimes complex world of credit.

    Terrific resource for all

    I bought the book and found it easy to read and helpful. The section on how to clean up your credit report was particularly useful for me. Cleaning up my report will hopefully allow me to qualify for the home loan I will be applying for soon. I only read the sections that applied to my financial situation, but I will keep the book handy to help with any future credit repair needs. S. Green (Houston, TX)

    Check out the Part of Tens

    For a quick lesson in money management I don¿t know if I¿ve seen anything better than the Part of Tens at the end of the book. All the high points are covered and if you need more information it¿s easy to find. Steve Bucci took a dry subject and made a surprisingly entertaining book ¿ I highly recommend it! J.K. Galyean
