FICO Score Levels...Bad, Not Good, Fair, Good, Very Good, Great.

Anyone know what the breakdown is under the FICO score summary? I thought that maybe when I went from 695 to 705 I would make the jump from Good, to Very Good. But I am still in the Good category. Anyone know where the Very Good point is?

Not good: 640

You're not far away!

I may be mistaken but I think Good starts at 660.

My Experian credit score was 720 and it listed it in the "good" category.  My Equifax was 670 and also listed as "good".  But I guess I won't have to worry about the Experian one anymore.

I never put much stock in that categorization as it is subjective anyway. In practice it may not make that much of a difference and all depends on the lender/creditor anyway. myFICO's intrepertation is only a visual guide not absolute. IMO.

I think I forgot to put a "+" next to the numbers. So, very good would be 720+.
