The principle text is An Introduction to Toxicology, by Philip C. Burcham, which provides a solid overview for much of the course material. A second text used is Casarett & Doull's Essentials of Toxicology, 3rd Edition, Curtis D. Klaassen and John B. Watkins, III, eds. Both texts are available online free of charge with UM login via the University Library Mirlyn system. The text Basics of Toxicology by Chris Kent, published by John Wiley & Sons (New York, 1998), is recommended for students who want basic explanations of biological responses: this text is written in clear language with generous use of diagrams. Although this is an older text, students have continued to recommend it. Because this book is older, it is available only in print.
