search in MPEP
« on: 05-12-17 at 03:33 pm »

Hello everyone,

When you search in MPEP, do you spend most time in chapter 100-2100?  Do you search a lot in appendix as well?  It seems I have to go to appendix, especially L, R, T for some questions.

Yes, appendices as well.  Part of a successful strategy is knowing where to search to most quickly zero in on the info needed.  Don't blindly wade through the MPEP in its entirety.  Look carefully at the phrasing of the question.   E.g.,  if it refers to specifics of 102, go directly to L;  if it refers to specifics of drawing requirements, go directly to R; if it refers to who signs papers when an inventor dies, go to the main MPEP (and you should know in advance which chapter).
