MRCP PACES reader !

Dear MRCP/Medical Student readers of this blog,

Thank you for following this blog. It is dedicated to all of you. The short case examination can cause you to have tachycardia during the examination and can also be fun if you have prepared well for it. It is a game and to see how well you play it.......

This year, I have got good news and not so good news. I will start with the not so good news. The not so good news is that I would not be able to organize the 5th MRCP Preparatory Course in Penang this year. I am not sure if anyone else is organizing it.
The good news is that I have compiled the cases in pictorial format into 2 books

1) PACING THE PACES - More than 300 over pages of diagrams, photos including cases of histories and communication skills. High quality paper and notes which is easy to read.

2) The Medical Short Case : An Examination Guide - More than 200 pages with approach and cases. No history or communication skills chapter in the book.

As the preorder for the book, we are selling the books :

Book 1 - RM50/book (excluding postage)
Book 2 - RM35/book (excluding postage)

Total for 2 books RM85 (excluding postage). If you are interested, please email me at to make orders before the price hike. The price is limited to residents in Malaysia only.

If you have finished reading the books, I am sure you will be able to approach the cases well and it will turn out to be a lot of fun.
