An absolute essential book while preparing for the PACES.There is an intial 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 diffrentails 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 unpredicatble 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!.

Cannot recommend anymore due to this being very old now.
Does not complement the new exam format.
Would have been good enough for the old format, but not anymore.
There are better written books out there for the new format of PACES and I don't think that anyone should buy this now..

The problem with MRCP Paces is that there aren't that many books out there to read. The main texts are this book, the Tim Hall book and the Baliga book.

In my opinion the Hall text the two Ryder books. The Ryder books tend to jump from one topic to another, almost as though you are reading what came into Ryder's head next! The Hall book, by contrast treats each station comprehensively and in a logical format.

Baliga doesn't have many pictures (as noted in many of the reviews under that book) and is far more theoretical than either the Hall and Ryder books.

Ryder doesn't appear to give much emphasis to the communication and ethics stations - certainly not in as comprehensive a manner as Hall.

Having said all this, it's slightly unfair to compare the Hall book to Ryder and Baliga as Hall has the definite advantage of having been published later and so can respond to how the Paces exam has developed.

My advice is to buy all four books (this, the second Ryder book, Hall and Baliga). They all have different detailed examples in them and it's important that you get as wide a variety of examples before taking the Paces. As noted above, there aren't enough books out there currently for Paces candidates to pick and choose books.

Anyone want to write one?

Only took PACES once and this has been so well used it looks like it's years old. Brilliant book. Just the right amount of knowledge for PACES revision but gives you plenty of hints, tips and extras if you're looking for extra marks. Would imagine it will still be fine for the new station 5

Although it is old in the market, it is an unparallel book with picture and clarity for MRCP Paces although management side is missing which you will have to read from OHCM/other. I wish somebody could bring a new edition!!

An aid to the MRCP PACES by Ryder/Mir is just a continuation of the 2nd edition of an aid to the MRCP short cases by Ryder/Mir(Which was aimed at the clinical part of old MRCP)and so does not fully conform to the new MRCP PACES EXam; the book covers only the clinical diagnosis of individual diseases without any discussion of their management and other relevant issues

The title says it all. Great for practising your presentations prior to the exam. Look in the back at the frequencies of cases to focus your revision. You still need to put in the leg work though.

I got this book recently. I went through it fast. It seems well organised, with lots of images. I got it as many of my friends who passed the PACES exam recommended it.
