"...this is an excellent book, giving good advice on how to become a skilled, thoughtful and knowledgeable physician and hence how to become a MRCP (UK)" Journal of the Royal College of Physicians "The case-by-case approach is useful in preparing for Medicine finals. Together with the examination routines, the book becomes a kind of alternative textbook to conventional clinical examination books such as McCleods." 2nd Opinion, The Magazine of the Scottish Medical Schools "...an invaluable companion to undergraduates in medical finals. It is easy to filter out the more obscure cases but this being said, the vast majority of the information is relevant to House Officers-to-be. This book is excellent value for money; the buy is well worth it." Leech Y Gelen, University of Wales College of Medicine Gazette This new edition of An Aid to the MRCP Paces Volume 1: Stations 1, and 3 has been fully revised and updated. It reflects both feedback from PACES candidates as to which cases frequently appear in each station. Also taken into account is the new marking system introduced in which the former four-point marking scale has been changed to a three-point scale and candidates are now marked explicitly on between four and seven separate clinical skills, with examiners no longer being asked to provide an additional mark for the candidate's performance as a whole. The cases contained within this new edition together with the examination routines and checklists provide an invaluable training and revision aid for all MRCP PACES candidates. This volume is accompanied by the forthcoming volumes: An Aid to the MRCP PACES Volume 2: Stations 2 & 4 Fourth Edition (9780470655184) An Aid to the MRCP PACES Volume 3: Station 5 Fourth Edition (ISBN to follow)
