Longacre Patent Bar Review Study Guide To the MPEP
Longacre Patent Bar Review Study Guide To the MPEP
by James R. Longacre
Edition: Paperback
25 used & new from $20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Longacre means passing, July 8, 2014
No one resource will get you a passing score on the agent exam, But Longacre is the only thing you should spend money on. Get all four of his book and use his website. The study guide gets into the detail necessary to understand appeals, correction of inventors, restrictions, reissue, reexams and 103 using some great tables. Longacre plus the FREE mypatentbar dot com and the Wysebridge free trial subscription equals passing.

2.0 out of 5 stars What are the titles of the songs on the album?, June 23, 2014
This review is from: Extremist (Audio CD)
Reviews could do with less drone on bloviation and let someone actually list the names of the songs on the album.

2.0 out of 5 stars too much math, too little explanation, April 9, 2014
Good: Description of how the concept applies to boost, buck, and other circuits, but this is all too brief.
Bad: Book goes way overboard with excessive math that is tangentally or completely unrelated to the subjects and impeeds understanding of the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cut and Paste from FREE and ancient material, February 26, 2014
These 15 year old questions are from old USPTO exams available for FREE at the USPTO web site or the mypatentbar web site under Old Exams.
Look at the samples.
"Inventor Smith patent" question is from October 2000 Morning Question #13
The "impermissible recapture" questions is from April 2000, Moring Question #39
The names, dates and facts are not even changed !

1.0 out of 5 stars puts the babble in psycho-babble, December 18, 2013
Pointless, mindless ranbling talking about life in general, telling long irrelevant stories, but not really saying anything useful or relevant to relationships. She talks incessantly about her husband's job, her neighbors, a dead parrot and her children, always with her children, even taing audience questions about children, on and on and on. There is nothing here specific to relationships, her talk is more about cute things her children did, and children getting along with parents. She takes long inaudible questions from the audience, essentially quiet time in the audio, and then does not answer anything relevant to relationships. Her few points are obvious, talk to your wive, flatter your wife, ask how was your day, and listening is important. Didn't Si say the same thing on Duck Dynasty? Nothing here even remotely comes close to lighting her fire. This is on six cassette tapes, each with side 2 mostly blank. This or the book is at your public library if you want to waste your time, but do not waste your money buying this drivel.

4.0 out of 5 stars re-recorded old songs and some good new songs, December 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
WARNING - re-recorded hits, these are NOT the original versions of the songs you know. These are new versions by the original singer and whoever else is in the band. The new songs are actually quite good, liked Champaigne Communist. But this is not the original Rock You, which sucks.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incomprehensible Drivel, November 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Incomprehensible Drivvel.
This book is awful and unreadable. Author pulls out these hopelessly complicated examples that use features never discussed in the book. Then starts with cutesy prose tirade and unrelated rambling, such as discussing the 1960's meaning of the term square, which has nothing to do with the subject of PL/SQL. Avoid at all costs, better boos are at your public library now.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless Garbage, October 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Chapters provide a very broad sweeping overview of concepts with litte code specific. The actual exam is nuts and bolts code specific. Thus this vacious book is worthless to pass the detail oriented actual exam. Also full of apawling typoes and mistaes. Save your money. I got it free at the public library and at free, I paid too much!

1.0 out of 5 stars awful worthless rambling, July 8, 2013
Book should be called "just a digression" because every other paragraph is a digression into an unrelated topic. Book even has digressions within digressions. Topic chapters begin with an unrelated history lesson going back to Newton or Kempler, then never actually explains the topic at the title of the chapter. Want to know what Dark Matter or a Higgs particle is, then go to wikipedia because they are not explained in this scatter brained book. Annoying folksy analogies are meant to entertain but never explain the topic. Not surprisingly, this poor communicator is tenured faculty. Avoid this book at all costs.
