How is the training so far? Anybody has difficulties on the first case? How is the in class training? Are they powerpoint lectures? or you have to write notes? I hope they don't put me to Zzzzzzzzz.. LOL... Undecided  Is it a lot of pressure? do they give out tests ?

Training is pretty good and slow, they make sure you understand the concepts. We have lecture hall lectures where the entire class of 80 people sit and listen. Then we have individual labs lectures/discussion. There are quizzes which are pretty easy if you understand the basics. here are powerpoint handouts given for each lecture, some topics are a lil boring, but overall its all good.

I am going to start on Sept 18, 2006. How is the USPTo working environment? do you have individual Cubical or room?  I am still searching the apartments near USPTO.. thinking Southern towers, since the rent is reasonable and has bus stop in front of the building to USPTO. Anyone has comment on Southern Tower?

The working envt is pretty good and relaxed. After the 8 months training, most likely you will be paired up with another examiner in a room. For apts, i am living at EDLANDRIA Apts, they are pretty good with excellent apt rating. Southern tower is pretty bad, if you go to apartmentratings.com, you can see its like 40% rating. Edlandria is 81%. Its 5 miles from USPTO, close to metro as well. If you need further help, email me: manusawhney21@yahoo.com , maybe i can try to find you a room with someone.
