Chris Casson from the blog Passing the Patent Bar with PRG has an exciting announcement:

It’s finally actually official: I’m taking the Patent Bar.  Yesterday at work I got a letter from the USPTO telling me my application to sit for the exam has been accepted, and I needed to make an appointment with Prometric to take the exam at one of their local testing centers as soon as possible.

How was Chris’s experience signing up for a testing date?  What are his study plans and goals between now and the final exam date?  Read the latest post to find out!

Last year we offered our industry-leading Patent Bar Review Course in Dallas, Texas for the very first time. And the response was tremendous! So, due to popular demand, we are back in the Lone Star State again in 2011.

We will be holding our Patent Bar Review Course at the Double Tree Dallas, near the Galleria, on December 5-9, 2011. The class is only a month away, but there is still time to register! (Be sure you don’t miss the 11/14 hotel registration deadline.)

The PRG Patent Bar Review in December is at the Doubletree Hotel in Dallas, TX.

And we don’t know when the bar exam will be updated to reflect the impacts of the recently passed America Invents Act, but the December course is perfect for anyone who wants to be sure to take the exam before it is changed.

And don’t forget — PRG’s bar review students benefit from access to the web-based version of ExamWareTM, our highly-acclaimed patent exam preparation software. And they (or anyone!) can read our “Passing the Patent Bar with PRG” blog to follow the real-life experiences of one of our students as he prepares for the patent bar exam.

At Passing the Patent Bar with PRG, Chris Casson is now taking practice exams during the process of studying for the Patent Bar Exam.  How did he do?  He tells you about the results in his latest blog post:

Despite getting a frustratingly low score, the simulated exam was a very helpful (and probably absolutely necessary) step in my exam preparation.  As Brad has indicated both at the PRG Patent Bar Review Course and on the blog, half the battle is figuring out how to handle the test itself, rather than learning the material.  The simulated exam is very useful because it can provide an indication of your level of preparedness for the exam itself, independent of the subject matter of the test.

Head on over and read the full post to learn about Chris’s experiences taking his first and second practice Patent Bar Exams!
