The Ultimate Credit Handbook was one of the best purchases I've made. It goes beyond the normal "we'll show you how to fix your credit-type" schemes and resources. Detweiler is honest with not providing any information that would give the impression that repairing your credit is an easy task.
This book was especially more helpful, because it was the first resource I've read (and there's been quite a few) that went through and actually explained certain processes and systems. For anyone serious about improving their score, its a resource you should have.
The only disappointment is that the book is more for the person starting out on the "repairing trail." If you've started the process and have it pretty much under control, there may be very little to assist you further.
But don't sleep, its worth the money. When done, pass it on to a family member or friend.

These credit tips were the basis for my company, United College Marketing Services.
This book was awesome and I used it as the foundation for Credit Strategies Seminars educating over 25mm young adults. It contains great tips on getting and keeping good credit for yourself. I truly encourage everyone who want to have awesome credit to get this book.
People that I have referred this book to rave about it as well. Libraries have multiple copies and people tell me that they are almost always checked out. My first copy of Ultimate Credit Handbook is very worn and close to falling apart...
I met Gerri back in 1988 at an International Credit Industry conference. I have never met a more giving person. Her career has been dedicated selflessly to helping consumers.
Buy this book because if you don't, you will lose out on thousands of dollars in interest fees.

This book truely answered all of my questions about credit and then went into suggestions that I could understand and implement. My credit is now perfect with a credit score of over 750. You will learn that scores over 700 are considered "A" credit. You will also see the importance of paying off high interest debt first. It sounds so simple but many people, like myself, were paying more on our mortgage while still carrying a credit card balance. This book has changed my family into knowledgable consumers. We are now debt free and I would strongly recommend it to anyone- and no, I don't know the author.

The book provides a lot of useful information about credit management, espacially for those people who have never had any credit. College students are, probably, the largest part of population bearing this characteristic. That is why I, being a college student myself, would like to highly recommend this book to everyone, especially students, as the most educative and useful in-real-life read ever! Gerri Detweiler emphasizes great strategies and techniques of dealing with credit card companies and making sure that your credit is and always remains in top shape!

Explains how to clean up a credit report. But it goes beyond just fixing up your record to cover rebuilding your credit, getting cheaper and lower rate credit cards and learning how to live within your means.

This book is the most useful financial took I have ever read. The majority of financial books focus on the details of transactions or the emotional battles of spending or saving money. Written by a woman with practical experience, this guide contains helpful, accurate information for
bolstering your credit and practical suggestions for overcoming emotional roadblocks to financial stability.

We used the information outlined in this book and it worked great. We had an old credit issue that dogged us for years. With this credit advise, we were able to deal effectively with AmEx and get incorrect charge-offs against our credit removed. This information is powerful and valuable. We recommend it.
