I used these book towards the end of my two months revision hell as an aide memoir and to grill my friends with. It's not quite detailed enough but it has all the crucial things which I found really helpful when my mind went blank during the exam. It's a lot more manageable than some of the books and so is probably essential.

A short and comprehensive book which is extremely useful to recall and update the important information for the exam. Though deficient in few areas it provides an excellant insight to the exam. The best part is that it doesnt consume a lot of time and one can go over it again and again in a very short period. Just add some foot notes of your own and go ahead.

this is a very good book for quick review but the chapter on neurology is very disappointing. only a few cases mentioned and that's certainly not enough for exam or learning purposes.

This book is good for a short summary/reminder of common cases, especially towards the end of revision or on your commute as its a perfect handbag size! You will need to use other texts in conjunction as it is brief and relies on you already knowing the rationale behind the signs/condition and investigations and management. It does what it says on the tin - concise revision aid but not generally the most helpful PACES text overall.

One of the better PACES books. Unlike many of the longer texts which focus on very obscure diagnoses in the kind of detail which is no longer required for the new PACES exam, this book cuts to the chase with need-to-know essentials. It isn't a resource to learn in-depth background or to understand the rationale behind clinical findings, and only covers the most basic (commonest!) viva questions, but it is great for last-minute revision or to as a starting point to plan and structure your revision. A useful section on the history station also allows includes a number of helpful revision cases.

Covers the common and important topics within the exam. Well structured and concise. Easy to carry around.

Good book for anyone taking paces but don't rely on it completely though.
Only best for last minute reading to touch up your knowledge before exam. Some of the points are not self-explanatory, hence you might confuse if you haven't revise the topic properly before reading this book.

I would greatly recommend this book for everyone preparing for PACES. It's concise, to the point differentials and easy to remember.
Cheers

Seems a little sparse compared to eg 250 Cases, but contains just the right amount of information for a viva. Describes the pertinent findings and differentials for each case, then provides a clear structure to discuss aeitiology, investigations, and management. Perfect for medical school finals.

This is a great book for finals - it's v focussed on the finals PACES/OSCE exams (not sure how this correlates with MRCP PACES) It gives you a level of knowledge slightly higher than required for finals - it got me a merit in my medicine finals. It doesn't explain everything though - it does assume some knowledge - so get it early-ish in the year and look up the things you don't understand.
Would definitely recommend.
