Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviews of An Aid to the MRCP Short Cases:

"...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 of London, on the previous edition

"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

From the Back Cover

The forerunner to this book - Ryder, Mir & Freeman's 'An Aid to the MRCP Short Cases' - rapidly established itself as a classic and has sold over 30,000 copies.

The new Progressive Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills (PACES) has replaced the old short case exam and, as a result, the authors have revised, reworked and extended their highly successful text so that it continues to address the study needs of candidates. This new revision aid is now presented in two volumes:


  • An Aid to the MRCP PACES Volume 1: Stations 1, 3 and 5
  • An Aid to the MRCP PACES Volume 2: Stations 2 and 4

This Volume covers Station 2 'History Taking' and Station 4 'Communication Skills'. In the 'History Taking' section at least 50 examples of each type of question and case are included, together with scenarios with simulated patients. The focus of the book is very much on the examiners' expectations so that candidates have a true picture of the areas on which they are being tested.

Station 4 'Communication Skills' also covers the ethical issues in the doctor-patient relationship, such as managing organ transplantation, consenting for hospital post-mortem, etc.

Also included in this Volume is the 'Experiences and Anecdotes' chapter providing real quotes from both candidates and examiners - this helps the candidate to avoid the more common pitfalls of the exam.

This is a book that was recommended by my consultant which had helped her prepare for her Paces exam and I must say this book is highly relevant and has many of the common cases that is considered 'bread and butter' by the RCP.

Each case highlights how to approach the patient in the exam, what kind of questions to ask to obtain a thorough and relevant history and is followed by a list of differentials and investigations required as well as additional questions the examiner may ask at the end of the station.

I understand that there is a newer edition to reflect the recent changes made to the MRCP Paces exam. Have not checked out the new edition yet so I don't know how it fares against this older copy though

communication part is the best. But the History section is not very good general with no specifications
they have a section of previous experiences and stations plus quotations from candidates and examiners
