Compendium of the papers of the European qualifying examination
Mid-December 2000, the European Patent Office will publish a new edition of the Compendium of papers set at the last European qualifying examination. It is intended to assist candidates and tutors in preparing for the examination.
The Compendium will consist of four booklets, which may be ordered together or separately:
Papers A & B (Chemistry)
Papers A & B (Electricity/Mechanics)
Paper D, Parts I and II
Each booklet contains the corresponding paper(s) in English, French and German, the examiners' report (original language only) and examples of answers by successful candidates (one per official language).
The booklets cost EUR 20 each, excluding postage and packing. Previous editions (1990/92 and 1993 to 1999) are still available.
The Compendium can be ordered from the European Patent Office's sub-office in Vienna (Rennweg 12, Postfach 90, A-1031 Vienna, Fax +43/1/52126-3591) using the enclosed order form or via the Internet: www.european-patent-office.org/epo/pubs/index.htm.
