Some title companies give them away for free. Or you can get them at most bookstores for about $6 bucks. One of the most comprehensive, which uses many charts and formulas, is the Realty Blue Book, through Professional Publishing in San Rafael, CA, which runs about $18.
By far the best method is to invest $20 to $30 in a financial calculator. They are the easiest, fastest, and most reliable to use. My personal favorite is the Texas Instruments BA II Plus, which runs $30 at most office supply stores. Good Luck
