*The references cited provide a general survey of the science of toxicology and its sub-disciplines.  Utilization of these references should in no way be construed to guarantee that all topics contained in the examination are covered or that successful completion of the examination will result.  Familiarity with the current literature in toxicology is recommended also.  This list is to be used as a guideline only and does not mean that other texts or journals cannot be used.  Recommend that, where possible, questions submitted for recertification from a tertiary or journal source be cross checked with one of the primary or secondary references.
