The following references can help with preparation for the CPSGT exam. The list is not all inclusive and inclusion does not constitute endorsement by BRPT or any officers or representatives of BRPT. There are many good textbooks and references available to be used as companions to STAR-designated Self-Study, Focused, and Focused 2 education programs. Candidates should choose study options based on their educational needs and learning preferences. Study materials should be current and the most recent versions or editions. As a general guideline, candidates should consider using one basic sleep technology textbook in addition to the STAR program, the AASM scoring manual, and selected AASM standards and guidelines.
