Warren Levinson has a book for microbiology, which includes parasitology. It's the best book for the subject in my opinion.

thanks but the parasites are not discusssed in that much detail in that book its good for the basic life cycle of parasite .. but is there any trick to learn them ...
none that I know of... that book or its equivalent is usually taken as the standard. If you know everything in there then you know plenty. Try google and wiki for more information, or maybe if there's some more popular texts where you're at then consult those. I can't think of any other books/tricks off the top of my head.
thanks for the link its good:happy: ??. but its only discussing the basic parsites#sad for example: In blood termatodes .. the life cycles is not at all in detail like a termatodes (flukes) have 5 different life cycle stages ..(an egg, miracidium, primay spookiest, redia and cercaria)N after the CERCARIAE stage they hav differ routes to reach to there host, blood flukes penetrate through the human skin to reach to its host ? sum penetrates to the crustaceans and some attaches to the surface of vegetation to reach to there and gradually mature into a adult stage! !!
There are only nine TEMRATODES I have to learn and in the website its only giving basic life cycle SCHISTOSOMASIS which are only 3 of them.
If anyone hav any kind of notes or presentation on any of the following parasites pleazz pass it on to me?
#eek Termatodes : fasciola hepatica, clonorchis sinensis, opisthorchis felineus, dicrocoelium dendriticum, schist heamatobium, S. Mansoni, S. Japoniicum, fasciolopis buski, paragonimus westermani.

#nerd Cestodes: tania saginata, taenia solium, tania multiceps, echinococcus granulosus, echinococcus multilocularis, hymnologies nana, hmenolepis diminuta, diplidium caninum, diphyllobothrium latum.

#dull Nemotoda: ascaris lumbiciodes, anaerobium vermicular is, trichuris trichiura, trichinella spiralis, strongyloides stercoralis, anxcylostoma duodenal, necator americanus, anisakis marina, wuchereria Bancroft, loa loa (my favourite)#yes , draccunclulus medinenis, toxocara canis,.T.cati.
