This title is written for MRCP candidates preparing for PACES exam in UK and rest of world. Clinical examinations in the OSCE style of marked stations are daunting for all students, whether undergraduates or MRCP candidates. The recent introduction of the 5-station PACES (Progressive Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills) exam inspired a great deal of apprehension, so the appearance of the first edition of Hall's PACES for MRCP was greatly welcomed by candidates and became an immediate success. This new edition builds on the book's reputation. It provides, in one colourful and attractive volume, complete coverage of all the most common medical cases that will be covered in PACES and similar exams.
