    Thank you for your reply, But I feel paces is straight forward clinical knowledge, Part 2a is bit ambiguous. I missed by few anwers so lost confidence in part 2a. I did onexamination (which I find useless) read sharma.
    PACES is in march and part 2a is in april so I will still have 1 month to go for part 2a, hence I want to fancy my chances for paces too.

    Do you think its wise?
    which books to read for paces? apart from presenting cases to colleague.
    Any courses?

    Thanks again.

    Dear doctors,,,,
    Simply ,if any one want to pass part2 written,should not bother himself by many resources:
    the following are fair enough:

    1.123 doc.
    2.sanjay sharma.
    3.passmedicine,which is for part 1..

    thanx every body

    Dear Dr.Omar , The best book 4 PACES is Ryder +/- Baliga . The course depends on ur nationality . If u r egyptian , The Egyp. Med. Sydicate gives clinical courses 2-3 weeks before each exam .

    Dear Has,
    I am also bangladeshi doc passed written in july have plan to sit paces in keep in touch if feel free.I am working in ksa.
    Any one from riyadh have plan to sit paces in 1/09 .pl keep in touch
    Thanks to every one who join this lovely discurssion.
    for 2nd part written examinee.
    I think one examination and sanjoy sharma and thimothy grays book is well enough but not like part 1 u will get only few qs common but u will get the clinical senario common.just read explanations more carefully.past papers must done including this forum qs,that is more common in exam.
    pl clear common clinical data like ecg,spirometry,alkalosis,acidosis they are more concentrating on ct,mri.Dont be afraid,just read and keep faith on yourself.Definitely this exam is tricky and be yourself.some people will distract yourself.
    take care

    Part 2 written july

    Hi! Tot I'll share. Took mrcp 2a 3rd time this july. Usually missed passing mark by 1 mark. This time I passed.

    Thought paper 1 easy. Similar topics & questions to Pastest online which I did every question & also tried repeatedly in the exam format.
    Paper 2 was just ok. I was too tired. Don't think I scored that well but ok.
    Paper 3 was just right.

    Other than what I learnt during my various subspecs postings, what I did:
    Did ALL pastest online questions.
    Did ALL pastest mcq books & picture tests.
    Read sanjay sharma & kalra.

    Good luck.

    this is my summary of what I have learned from posts on this forum


    Time management during exam is important

    1) - repeat 4 times or more do past papers and all pictures - the questions and explanations, at the end make notes of all clues

    2) Sanjay Sharma textbook - read the book from cover to cover 3 times and make notes.
    3) Kalra or OHCM/Kumar/Harrison to complete your knowledge about common diseases
    4) Data interpretation
    5) X-Ray, CT, ECG

    Guidelines summaries
    Pastest, Passmedicine

    Cotran and Robbins small book if possible

    regarding EAA .

    the question was so tricky , and need a concentrated mind.

    look , the proper answer is NEUTROPHILIA , which is more common than upper zone shadowing .
    besides that the coomon CXR feature of EAA is mid-zone mottling/consoilidation .
    you can check in Oxford hand book page 180.

    despite that p.karla mentioned EAA as cause number 1 for uper zone shadowing in chronic cases, while generalized shadowing in acute caes. page 674 & 683 ,

    hi all

    i think all of you heard or read at the mrcpuk website , about the new marking system which would be used from our exam mrcp1 sep 2008.
    this system is rather more difficult than the previous one,
    in the new system (EQUATING) ,there is no fix mark for any bof , as the mark depends on the diffiulty of the question , i.e. a question could carry a range of marking from 1-10 as an example.out of a 999 total mark.
    not like the old system , that every BOF could get either 1 or 0 , independtly of question difficulty out of 200.

    the royal college mentioned that this weird system is used in USMLE & cambridge english test ,but frankly speaking , i want to know , why the RCP wants to compare their selves with a general praction test , and not even the american board .

    also the announment of these changes only 10 days , before the exam , this is totally WRONG , and this means , the guys who made these changes are never related to academic field , which should take in concern the psychological status & stress of any doctor going through this tough exam .

    in the end , i want to clarify that , there is no more 61 or 65 % pass score , as the result will come up with pass mark out of 999 ..............
