For any of you considering careers in the following professions, these books will be extremely useful for learning, studying and reviewing for the Board of Registry Exam and subsequent licensing in your home state.

I've kept the most expensive textbooks off the list, because I know Most of us will not be able to afford $200 for one textbook (even if it is recommended by ASCP).

Most of these books I own, and they have been invaluable in my studies. I'm always looking for new books that are interesting.

If you have any questions about any of the books I've listed, or about the profession, feel free to ask."
