    This past summer I was having a hard time deciding between PLI and another patent course. I ended up choosing PLI and I have no regrets. After taking the live course, and then studying for a month after work I passed on the first try. Three people I met and kept in contact with from the test also passed on their first attempt about a month after the course.

    I am not paid to endorse PLI, and the other courses I was considering may have been excellent as well; this was just my experience. I just hope that this may help someone who has yet to take the course filther through all of the propaganda that I encountered on the course websites.

    The PLI site is back up.

    I also did the PLI course and passed first time on the October 2000 test, which was a hard one (37% passed). My test scores on old papers went up from around 30% before the course to around 70% after. The passmark was 70%, and I studied for another 6 months before taking the test, spending about three times the recommended study time (300 hours, versus 100).

    I worked for John White at one time, as did Matt Stavish, who was one of the instructors. They are nice guys, and they are not paying me to endorse PLI!
