Perils of the Patent Bar Exam: In the Midst of Change

le fact that the version of the MPEP you are studying is "outdated," and that there are some pertinent facts contained in these supplemental documents (the federal registers), you could easily be mislead into thinking a certain answer is correct based on what the MPEP says, but overlook the true policy and rules contained in the registers.
