  • Aid to the MRCP Paces: Volume 1
    R.E.J. Ryder, Afzal Mir, Anne Freeman


    An absolute essential book while preparing for the PACES. There is an initial introduction about systematic examination of various systems and then it plunges headlong into the most common possibilities under station 1,3,5.Its does not give differentials for every station but what it mentions on the 'findings delivery' bit is pure gold!." This exam is passes on how well you can sell your findings". The various anecdotes and experiences of past candidates are excellent and a great reminder of how unpredictable this exam can be. whatever it is, it teaches you the correct things to say when faced with the typical exam patient which is something you would otherwise bump into once in 2years!]. Use it in conjuction with baliga and a good clinical course -it 'll make the exam easily passable. I did-and passed in the first attempt!.

  • An Aid to the MRCP Paces: Volume 2
    R.E.J. Ryder


    A must have book for any candidate who is seriously preparing for the MRCP PACES .Also a life saver for someone who has a lack of time or enough UK experience to be comfortable with the system. The discussion in both the history taking and ethics section is invaluable in daily medical practice. I wish I had this book much earlier!
