Patent Bar Exam Update: New Information Tested and More Changes to Come
Date:2/7/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 07, 2013

The Patent Bar Exam, the test generated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office which acts as a bar one must pass before becoming a registered Patent Agent or Patent Attorney, has already gone through some major changes within the past few months. On October 2nd, 2012, the USPTO added a substantial amount of testable material to the exam, which was included in six Federal Registers. These changes come on the heals of the America Invents Act (AIA) implementation.

What's caused some confusion, is that there are three phases to the implementation of the AIA, each with different rules and subsets of information. This has been a source of challenge, not just for current Patent Practitioners, but also for those studying to take the Patent Bar Exam.

The implementation of the AIA looked/looks like this:

AIA Phase I: Went into effect and started to be tested April 2011.
AIA Phase II: Went into effect October 16th, 2012, and is showing up on the exam
AIA Phase II: Goes into effect March 16th, 2013, and will begin to be tested heavily.

According the USPTO, "The United States Patent and Trademark Office will be updating the content of the registration examination on April 2, 2013. The updated examination will include provisions of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA) that will take effect March 16, 2013. Specifically, the updated examination will additionally cover the following topics: Derivation Proceedings and First-Inventor-to-File."

These changes and updates are not insignificant. While the exam still remains a 100 multiple-choice test, passing the exam is becoming more difficult. This is due to the sheer fact that the amount of information test-takers are responsible for knowing is expanding. On top of this, the material being added directly affects some of the older materials and rules that have been in
