Bill, ditto what Bill said plus the following:
1.? especially stress instrumentation basic concepts and applied science and know the different regulations, DOE, NRC, DOL all of which are different and then EPA and DOT as well.
2.? You might use Ken Skrable's Part II questions and answers in the HP Newsletter from past years to help you study.?
3.? Also a good book, mostly for Part I study or a general refresher?is Moe's book published by Argonne, it used to be free for download (although it is huge).?Moe is not up to date on regulations.
4.? Study applications in different industries, accelorator, medical, power, etc.

I would study as many different references as possible, but especially
the most recent past exams. Knoll's Radiation Detection and Measurement,
Attix' Introduction to Radiological Physics and Radiation Dosimetry,
Chilton's Principles of Radiation Shielding, Stannard's Radioactivity
and Health, Miller's CRC Handbook of Radiation Protection Programs are
good texts dealing with specific portions of health physics. I would
also study all of the current NCRP and ICRP publications, the BEIR
publications, and the Code of Federal Regulations, especially 10 CFR 20
, 35 and 50 and the radiation-related portions of 40 and 49 CFR. In
addition to Cember's book, Shapiro's "radiation Protection, Turner's
Atoms, Radiation and Protection, Bevelaqua's Contemporary Health Physics
and the Radiological Health Handbook give board discourse on the field.
The HPS Summer School texts are also good preparations. This is neither
all-inclusive nor up-to-date. I know others have written excellent study
guides and reference books.

After much procrastination I am planning on attempting part II of the
CHP process. I passed Part I in 2004 and then digressed by becoming a
CIH which was more in line with current job duties. Anyway I want to
give it a good shot so I would appreciate and recommendations on prep
courses, texts (I have cember), study guides, etc.
