Neurology has a reputation as a difficult area in the MRCP examinations, with the clinical neurology stations (PACES and traditional short cases) being especially feared by candidates. This book aims to demystify the subject, and help candidates avoid becoming bogged down in unnecessary detail and to clarify their thoughts and expression. The book is divided into three major sections covering areas of the body, each organised according to the possible instructions that candidates are likely to encounter in the exam. They include summaries of essential examination steps to be undertaken, possible clinical findings, brief discussions in question and answer format, and tips and pitfalls. Concise, clear and engaging, this is an essential aid for candidates preparing for the MRCP clinical neurology stations.
