How to Register for the Patent Bar Exam

So, I’ve been talking a little about various elements of the patent bar exam.  But, something as simple as figuring out how to even register for the exam can cause much headache and unnecessary confusion.  Over at Wysebridge Patent Bar Review, we’ve outlined and streamlined the process, and I figured we probably should post here as well! … Continue reading

The MPEP and Study Guides…One without the other

  We’ve been discussing the MPEP a lot recently here, and for good reason.  Besides the fact it’s a gigantic document.  Besides the fact that anyone thinking about taking and passing the patent bar exam must be familiar with tit.  Besides the fact that it’s rather confusing, cumbersome, and intimidating.  Besides the fact that…wait, what … Continue reading

So many rules, so little time…

In talking with several individuals online preparing for the Patent Bar Exam, it’s become clearer that the MPEP at first glance is an overwhelming document (ok, maybe even still at second and third glances as well)!  In some of my previous posts, I talked about some key concepts and rules to know.  However, today, instead … Continue reading

MPEP: What is it, Why is it so LARGE?

The MPEP is the manual for patent agents and patent examiners published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In short (Ha…pun intended!) it’s a long, long document (Over 3000 pages) that describes the laws and regulations that must be followed in the examination of U.S. patent applications.  It also outlines in detail … Continue reading

35 USC 112: Another to know in your sleep

Earlier I mentioned how you should know, without even having to think, the 35 USC 102’s.  Probably in a close…very close second, is knowing 35 USC 112.  There are several “paragraphs” of 35 USC 112…and you’ll often encounter exam questions with something along the lines of “According to 35 USC 112, 6th paragraph.”  So, it … Continue reading


The below is a sample of what we’ve written on our site over at Wysebridge.com. Before you go further in your studies, it might be wise to take a few moments to think about how you tend to study, or have studied, in the past.  What’s worked for you.  Flashcards? Drawing diagrams?  Straight up memorization? … Continue reading

The MUST Know to Pass The Patent Bar Exam: 35 USC 102

We all know that the Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (MPEP) is a gigantic document.  I mean, literally, having one printed at kinkos might double the national debt.  Ok, perhaps not, but what remains true is that the MPEP is over 3,000 pages of legal and technical language, tricky facts and rules, that often leave those … Continue reading

The Key To Passing The Patent Bar Exam Is….

This is the question isn’t it?  This is what every test-taker wants to know, and know SOONER rather than later in their own studies. Well, there probably might be much debate over this, but in my opinion, if you had to pick one, singular, key thing, that is essential to pass the exam, it would … Continue reading
