1. The approach

Most patent bar courses, including PLI and PATBAR, present the exam material in MPEP-chapter order. Unfortunately, the MPEP was designed to be a reference and is not organized to help you get ready for the patent bar! If you want to learn to speak French, picking up a French dictionary and starting to memorize A-words and then B-words and on through Z-words, is going to be a very confusing and inefficient way to learn. It might even make you feel like giving up before you've even had a chance. Some people think other courses are deliberately trying to be confusing. Why do other courses take the A-Z approach? That's a very good question. Tradition?
