Clinical examinations in the OSCE style of marked stations are daunting for all students, whether undergraduates or MRCP candidates. The recent introduction of the 5-station PACES (Progressive Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills) exam inspired a great deal of apprehension, so the appearance of the first edition of Hall’s PACES for MRCP was greatly welcomed by candidates and became an immediate success. This new edition builds on the book’s reputation. It provides, in one colourful and attractive volume, complete coverage of all the most common medical cases that will be covered in PACES and similar exams. Although designed specifically for the PACES part of the MRCP exam, its in-depth coverage means that it can be used by any student preparing for clinical examinations in medicine.

    Comments from candidates' reviews:

    "The book is an excellently designed companion to PACES preparation. It is portable enough to be carried around with you (unlike some other texts!), and removes some of the fear factor that can hamper preparation. I certainly used this book as my main text whilst on the wards and have recommended it ever since. I feel it is the best PACES text."

    "The book's format follows the format of the exam and helps to focus and get an idea what one needs to prepare for. It focuses not only on signs related to certain diseases, but also how to recognise and interpret these. As a second step it includes treatment/management to discuss the disease/case in the exam."

    "One of the greatest assets of this text is the positioning of relevant (and often asked!) questions at the end of this case. Even if studying alone it is possible to see a real patient and then test oneself on the questions practicing for the real exam experience. The close proximity of the answers (directly following the questions) aids readability, as some texts require you to seek out other pages. The competition lacks the questions which help you get good pass marks."

    "The miscellaneous section of 100 tips is motivating and all-encompassing! I often flicked to the back of the book throughout my preparation. It is also excellent for the night before the exam."

    "Hall’s PACES for MRCP has comprehensive and up-to-date information presented in a very easy-to-read format. It quotes up-to-date studies. The content appears to be more comprehensive than any of the other PACES books out in the market that I have seen."
