Other updates include the addition of new real estate terms to coincide with new regulations, as well as moving math out of the main text to the appendix, so readers have a single place to find all formulas and real estate math. As in previous editions, William H. Pivar continues to provide helpful, accessible instruction and hands-on experience in examination techniques.
