PLI’s Patent Office Registration Exam Course (a.k.a “Patent Bar Review”)

Do you have an engineering or science degree or background?
Take the Patent Office’s Registration Exam to become a Patent Agent or Attorney!

The USPTO updates the Registration Exam in early June, but not to worry…

It’s a non-substantive update. They’re just doing a technical update to the software. No new content, or as the Patent Office puts it on their Website: “The updated examination will cover the same material as the current examination.”

We of course long ago updated our materials, lectures and practice questions to reflect the last substantive update, October 2014. We don’t expect another substantive change to the Exam until the end of 2015. But we’ll let you know when that happens. We generally have 90 days’ (3 months’) notice. As always, once you’ve bought our course, we will give you the written supplements you need, and ongoing access to the online course for the new lectures and questions we post, as the tested materials change. We’re with you until you pass.

All of the advantages of the PLI live course in your own home! Designed for students who prefer to work at their own pace, the PLI homestudy program replicates our live program. You get all of the same materials as in a live course; you even get all of the same lectures, but on video. Video lectures can be paused periodically to do additional reading, to study Exam questions under discussion, whatever you decide. You can even fast forward through material you already know. This option may be preferred by potential Exam takers with either a low knowledge base or some advanced experience. All of our registrants get access to our faculty to get your questions answered, via voicemail and email. Click here to Register.
