NOTE
--------------------------------------------------

1. All books given as Standard Textbook and with asterisks (*) are worth reading cover to cover.
2. Refer the latest editions available as much as possible and don’t forget to go through the old ed. at least once for important chapters.
3. Don’t loose heart at the volume of books mentioned. You already read through most of them and so it’s easy to orient yourself.
4. Where I don’t remember the exact name of the text I put forth the at least one author's name and vice versa. Please bear with this.
5. The books given under the heading are standard texts to be followed and the references may be used for clarifications or in-depth understanding or for selective topics.
6. I will shortly come up with a list of standard references for selective important topics in all clinical dental specialities so buddies come up with a list of important topics in PG entrance point of view.
