Chris Casson of Passing the Patent Bar with PRG took the Patent Bar Exam, and he passed!  How did PRG help Chris pass the Exam?

I won’t say it’s not possible to pass the Patent Bar on the first try without the help of PRG, but I’m not sure I could have done it without everything they offer.  Starting with the excellent Patent Bar Review course taught by Paul Gardner, and continuing with the videos, which I used to review some important lectures, and then, most of all, the ExamWare™ questions.

Chris describes the testing process (and his sense of relief after passing) in his latest blog post!

You’re ready to prepare for the USPTO Patent Bar Exam, but you prefer learning on your own and at your own pace, rather than in a classroom environment.  Or maybe you just can’t (or don’t want to) travel.

PRG’s Video Bar Review Course is the perfect solution for you!  The Video Course provides all of the same instruction and materials as our Classroom course, with the flexibility of proceeding at your own pace.  You have the power to rewind, repeat, and reinforce if you feel that there is something you missed.

Watch the Patent Bar Review Video Course online!

And our video course is now available online, through the intuitive, easy-to-use video-on-demand interface on the PRG website.  No more disks!  And as you watch PRG Academic Director Paul Gardner’s lecture, you’ll also see a PowerPoint presentation that follows along with the video.

Prefer a classroom course?  We’ve got you covered with the options below:

  • January 23-27, 2012 — Newport Beach (Orange County), CA (Register today — it’s not too late!)

Chris from Passing the Patent Bar with PRG only has a few days left before he takes the Patent Bar Exam!  In his newest blog post, he tells the readers about his feelings before the big day:

The countdown to the test continues, and I don’t feel the same way about it from one minute to the next.  I am eager to get it over with and repossess my evenings and weekends, but no matter how prepared I actually am, I will be nervous about whether or not I can pass the test.  I often dread logging on to ExamWare™ to answer practice questions in the evenings, but once I do, I sort of actually enjoy the rhythm of reading and answering the questions (so long as I’m answering a large majority of the questions correctly).

Chris also gives us a rundown of how he’ll spend his final days studying and preparing for the Exam, so head over to Passing the Patent Bar with PRG to read the full post!

Chris Casson of Passing the Patent Bar with PRG only has two weeks to go until he takes the Patent Bar Exam on December 14th. How is he feeling?

I will be taking the Patent Bar within two weeks.  That’s kind of a scary thought.  In all reality, however, I’m starting to feel more and more confident about my chances of passing on December 14th.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been continuing my general strategy of answering questions from one PRG Patent Bar Review course section at a time, with a simulated exam sprinkled in on the weekends, and I have been relatively pleased at the number of questions I’ve been correctly answering.

How will Chris spend his final two weeks of study time?  Find out in his newest blog post!
