Perils of the Patent Bar Exam: In the Midst of Change
Date:1/14/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 14, 2013

The Patent Bar Exam has constantly remained one of the most challenging exams. Despite the fact that the majority of individuals who take the exam are individuals that tend to be some of the brainiest around: Scientists, engineers, physicists...many of whom are in law school or are already lawyers, the passing rate according to the USPTO remains around 50%. That's right. 50%.

But here's the problem. The Manual of Patent Examining Procedures(more commonly referred to as the MPEP) remains out of date. What this means, is that even though these new rules are in effect, the MPEP (and what's used on the exam) does not reflect these changes. Instead these policy and rule changes are posted in documents called Federal Register Notices, which trump the rules and policies contained with the MPEP. For those of you who don't know, the United States Patent Bar Examination tests information contained within the MPEP, as WELL as the federal registers. So, imagine you are a newbie to the world of Patents, and are preparing to study to take the exam. You get yourself a copy of the MPEP, start studying, and unless you are aware of this litt
