Cases for PACES

Stephen Hoole, Andrew Fry, Daniel Hodson

ISBN: 978-1-444-31299-7 April 2009 Wiley-Blackwell 192 Pages


This book has been written for PACES candidates by a team of authors who are themselves recent PACES candidates. Frustrated by the lack of suitable revision material available, the authors drew upon their own experiences of studying and the exam to create this concise revision aid.

Presented in a case study format to match the exam, the book has an informal writing style. The syllabus for the exam has been reviewed extensively by the authors and, whilst ensuring that the book covers all the essential information, obscure cases are not featured.

Designed to fit in a white coat pocket for 'on the job' study, the structure of the material guides the reader through self-directed learning.


1. Ethics, Law and Communication Skills.

2. History Taking.

3. Cardiology and Neurology.

4. Abdominal and Respiratory.

5. Skin, Musculoskeletal, Eyes and Endocrine.
