Do you guys think a degree in Management Information Systems would be eligble?
i just got my PLI review materials in the mail todaysomeone please shoot me.
One piece of advice, I think I focused for too long on reviewing the general material. I spent two weeks going through the rules, and then four weeks doing practice tests. A lot of the stuff I did going over the rules was worthless because the patent bar actually focuses on certain narrow issues..
