5A good introduction book
By Taylor Curtis Braz
This book is a good introduction for a student in real estate development, city planning, and even finance. It goes over construction loans, then converting that over to a permanent loan. It also covers financial formula such as loans and net present value. I'm still a student, but I believe that in the future I'll probably be referencing this book. I'll be referencing it if I'm working for a development company. Instead of just passing the loan and financing over to the accountant, by having some understanding of construction finance, I'll be more prepared to set up responsible construction loans.
