    Must means a compulsion where should is normative and simply asks you to do a certain thing or action.
    Ex.: 1) Exercise is a must for good health. 2) If you are visiting Rome, then you must visit the Vatican. 3) You must read everyday to top the exams, the last minute rush won't do.

    1) You should not blow your nose in public. 2) You should read Newspapers everyday to keep abreast with the world events. 3) You should visit Europe to acquaint yourself with the modern civilization.

    I AM NOT A TEACHER OF ENGLISH, JUST SOMEONE WHO LOVES THE LANGUAGE.
