"Candidates should select 4-6 of the primary and 3-4 of the secondary texts listed below to prepare for the Epidemiology Specialty examination. 

"The list of references is neither exhaustive nor definitive, in so far as it represents a compromise between completeness and brevity.  Use the most current edition available for any of the references listed.  We also encourage you to review and read as much current (past year) literature as possible (eg: Am J Epidemiol, Am J Public Health, Int J Epidemiol, JAMA, JAVMA, Lancet, MMWR, NEJM, Science, etc.) with particular focus on important public health and animal health issues such as bioterrorism, antimicrobial resistance, animal production, disease control, etc."
