There are several industry standards, but I would say Cember's book is the most widely used. If you can get your hands on a copy, Moe is pretty good as well.

...try out the nuclear science portal at www.nucleonica.net. You have to register but access is free. Nucleonica specialises in health physics.

Health physics courses at the universities I am familiar with use:

(1) Lamarsh, Introduction to Nuclear Engineering (Ch. 9-11)
(2) Turner, Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection, 2nd Edition

Please note the date of the OP.

Cember is the book I used for my class in Health Physics.

Glenn Knoll's book on Radiation Detection and Measurement is another book that we used in lab (radiation detection and measurement) in addition to HP class.

Environmental Aspects of Nuclear Power, Geoffrey G. Eichholz, 1977 was a related book used in a course on environmental issues such as waste disposal.
