BOOKS:

"Textbooks
Listed books represent current resources that may cover similar content and thus may be redundant to each other. The candidate should be familiar with the relevant concepts covered in these books. Not all books in each subject area are necessary to adequately
cover all concepts as outlined in the document formally known as the GIG."

Journals and Serial Textbooks

Veterinary cardiac literature from the last 5 years should receive the most attention (inclusive of dates up to Sept 1st of the year before the exam). In addition some relevant veterinary studies published in the human literature may be cited. Veterinary cardiac literature older
than 5 years may also be referenced if more current publications have not addressed the topic.
