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 Patent Office again updated its Registration Exam the end of January 2014 to add three new documents to the testable materials. The first document, the “first-inventor-to-file” rules, were added to our materials, lectures and questions almost a year ago. (We added those when the new “first-inventor-to-file” law became testable in April 2013, just to be safe.)

The other two documents are in fact new to the Exam. But they are not major changes or additions. (Certainly nothing like the major additions to the Exam over the past year, as the America Invents Act was added to the Exam in stages.) And we have already updated our course (written materials, lectures and questions) to reflect these new additions. We also have a free supplement for any of our past purchasers who haven’t yet passed the Exam, and they will of course get access to the new lectures and practice questions online.

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.
