          ben Asher, Jacob. Arbaah Turim. Various editions.
          
   [Karxx]
          Karo, Joseph. Shulhan Arukh. Various editions. [Note that the
          Mapah of R. Moshe Isserles (the Ramah) is actually printed as
          parenthetical text in the Shulchan Aruch of Rav Yoseph Karo.
          The Ramah printed his comments to show the standard Ashkenazic
          determinations especially where they differed from the Sefardic
          customs of R' Karo. As a result, the Shulchan Aruch serves as
          the standard halachic source text of both Sephardim (R. Karo's
          original) and Ashkenazim (as modified by the Ramah).]
          
   [Gol63]
          Ganzfried, Solomon; Goldin, Hyman E. Code of Jewish Law. Hebrew
          Pub Co; 1963. Paperback. ISBN 0-884827-79-8. [This is an
          English translation of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, which is a
          completely different work from the Shulchan Aruch. The Kitzur
          Shulchan Aruch was written in the late 1800's by Rabbi Shlomo
          Gantzfried and is a summary collection of Halachah for every
          day practice divided into categories. The Jewish Catalog
          cautions against using the Kitzur Shulhan Arukh of Shlomo
          Ganzfried, which it states is "a collection of ultrastringent
          views often without firm basis in halakhic sources". However,
          other contributors think it provides lots of information on
          specific practices, but can be overwealming. As usual, it is
          probably best to ask your Rabbi.]
