What helps your credit score?  What hurts it?  What are the best ways to build it up?  What do you do if there's a problem on your credit report?  Should you keep a credit card open even if you're not using it, or should you close it?

These are just some of the many questions people have about their credit scores and credit reports.  And this is something that affects just about everybody out there.  So, to try and get an understanding of what goes into it, I spoke with John Ulzheimer, a credit expert formerly of FICO and Equifax.

John spent an hour with us, answering questions from callers and texters.  Take a listen to our conversation below, and maybe it'll help you and your credit score out.
