A great resource that will help you through the class as well as in your real estate career is the book entitled, The Language of Real Estate by John W. Reilly. This book defines real estate terms and provides examples of them. You can purchase from GIRE or me.
I hesitate to give you other resources to use to study. One, because the slightest variation in the description of a concept can cause more confusion. And two, you will have so much material as we move through the course that you really will not need additional materials.
Flash cards are an excellent method to employ. Put the term on one side and write the explanation/definition on the other side. During the course I will also present other memory tools to aid your success.
