Antedating 102e reference
How long did it take you to prepare for the exam on Dec. Jean Marie Reply Much luck to all of you on the exam!
If you could search for a block for 4 or so words in the appropriate MPEP section, you would likely find the paragraph that listed all the answers, absent the one that was ‘wrong.’ Regardless of the fact there were so few repeats, I found it very helpful to have done almost all the old exams, as it starts to make things pop out as right or wrong. However, I would say there were only about 15 repeats on the test. Appeal, reissue, reexamination, and PCT were hit hard.I found at least 3 instances where the answer was a long word for word quote of a case holding, but differing by one or two words toward the end of the quote.Someone working quickly would likely fall into the trap of reading the first couple of lines and assuming that they had found the right answer.Q1) Red or Black Ink (Examiner’s Amendment) Q2) Titanium Baseball (Pulic Use/Printed Publication) Q3) Mirror (Inherent Function) Q4) Submitting Tables on CD-ROM Q5) Amending the Abstract – PCT Q6) Obviousness Q7) Claiming, Deleting and Reclaiming Benefit Claim Q8) Missing Parts – PCT Q9) Correcting PCT Applications Q10) Suspended Practitioner Q11) Digital Media for Gene Sequence – Biotechnology Q12) 1.131 and 1.132 Affidavits Q13) International Search Reports – PCT Q14) Costa Rica and Sweeden – PCT Q15) Spanish Phone – Design Q16) Lip Gloss/Ship Bell (Experimental Use) Q17) Velcro (Trademarks in Claims) Q18) Small Entity Status Q19) Mexican Nationals – PCT Q20) Information requested from USPTO Q21) Trade Secret Question Q22) Germany – PCT / Patent Term Q23) Broom Q24) Japanese Patent Q25) Electric Fan Q26) Maintenance Fee Paid / Check Returned Q27) Reissue (variant of Tommie and Jo) Q28) Means plus Function variant of Door Handle (Determining Equivalence) Q29) Death of inventor before application is filed Q30) Canadian Patent Agent in the USA Q31) Chemical Claim Q32) User Pass Q33) Indefinate Claim USing ‘High’ Q34) Investigating Deceptive Intent Q35) 2 Month Rule for Final Office Action Q36) Notice of Appeal Q37) Terminal Disclaimer Q38) Piecemeal Q39) Advisory Action Q40) Assignment Q41) Documents Requiring Signatures Q42) Missing parts in PCT Application (30 days) Q49) Rejection after Allowance Q50) Appeals Q51) Best Mode Q52) Multiplicity Q53) Reissue/Filing Amendment Q54) Australia (30 Month) – PCT Q55) Basic filing fee Q56) Restriction Requirement / Continuation Application Q57) 102(a): Need to file foreign language translation Q58) Exam Concept – Appeal Q59) PTO-892 Q60) Anticipation Q61) PCT Publication Q62) 102 and 103 Rejections Q63) TP Submissions Q64) Restriction Q65) CPA Q66) Claims Q67) Obviousness Q68) Hydrocyclone Hi all, Thanks for putting this one together.My test at Prometric here in Lowell, MA, will be Monday, Dec 17th.
