- For a more detailed explanation of “mandatory credit counseling“ take a look at the Federal Trade Commission’s page.
- For a good perspective on mandatory credit counseling there’s also a Washington Post article from 2005 titled “Mandatory Counseling, A Good Idea (In Theory).”
- For an explanation that helps clarify some of the confusion, try reading “The Many Meanings of ‘Credit Counseling‘” by bankruptcy law firm Haines & Krieger (Las Vegas, NV).

- Here’s the Investopedia entry on subprime mortgages.
