This book is provided in 3 parts - Part I and Part II must be ordered separately.
Every year, the WIPO produces an official printable version of the complete Applicants Guide, including all annexes, specifically for the Pre- and Main Exams. However, it is 1950 pages and much of it will never be required at the exam.
I have produced this abbreviated & improved version to lighten the load and to save a few trees. Using the EQE Regulations, past D papers and comments from the D Examination Committee, I have limited it to adequately cover what you should actually need. In addition, I have added several useful overviews from the WIPO & EPO websites which can speed up answering questions during the exam.
Most of the contents are sourced from WIPO/EPO websites and Official Journal, and no copyright is claimed for these parts.
