ACVD Books

This list of textbooks below is not all-inclusive and does not exclude
the possible use of additional sources not specifically listed on this reference
guide. However, it does reflect the current examination committee’s use of
references commonly used for test material.

Information that is older than 5 years but is still up to date (e.g. relating to
structure/function) is still considered acceptable subject matter for exam
questions.
