I'm considering a pretty big career change from Research Scientist to Patent Lawyer. Without dwelling on the subject, I feel I'll be able to make a larger contribution to society and also make a better living with this move. My plan is to take the exam and start as a patent agent and then decide whether or not to go to night law-school. Having said that, I've started studying for the USPTO exam. I'm spending my evenings going through iTunesU courses on patent law and I'm looking at other ways to use an iPad to help me along this process. Are there any apps or other resources that will help me prepare for the exam? Are there any apps that I will use as an agent? As an aside, If anyone else has made a similar move I'd love the chance to pick at your brain and hear your experience. Feel free to post here or PM me if you can have more private conversations. Thank you again.
