Books you can read:
Textbooks: These are the books that you should read as a baseline. There are options for choosing one book. For example, many of my colleagues read Greenwood but I read Patrick Murray.
This is a to help you review the paper (part 2) and help with medical statistics.
This book is written specifically for infection training. I like this book. It will give you an idea, what the practice like in the UK.
This is not written for FRCPath, but I found it useful in my preparation. This is more useful now as the questions are increasingly clinical.
This is a reference book. I suggest, do not make it a textbook. Refer to this book when required and make a note of your findings.
Useful book but a little old now. If you want to know the properties of the criteria relevant to the laboratory, it should be in your inventory. However, you may want to search your laboratory for a copy to have a read. It is a reference book.
These are some additional microbiology books which I haven’t used for the examination or a little outdated now. They are good books. It is up to you if you want to use any of them for your preparation.
Although I used this book, it is a little outdated now, in my opinion.
A good infection control book. It could be an alternative.
A very good companion/handbook for microbiology and any junior doctors. A popular book.
