Comments:
Marie Spodek, DREI, "Professional Real Estate Services" writes: "This book consistently meets the needs of three levels of students: For beginners, definitions; for intermediate users, application; and foradvanced users, little known fact. Every time I pick up 'Big Yellow', I learn something new."


Paul Boyter, CRS, GRI, "McColly School of Real Estate": "If a student doesn't pass, it is because they didn't read the book. I think it is great."
