Hi Preet Pal,

I don't know if there are any books guiding patent agent exam.  But Brainleague is conducting classes for those who are willing to appear for patent agent exam.  It will be better take that.  You would be successful.

Learn the patent Act and Rules by heart, it is the only book which can help you.

Patent Agent examination consists of two papers and interview.

Paper 1 is totally basewd on the patent act and rules

Paper 2 includes hypothetical situations where you are supposed to reply to your clients queries based on patent Act and rules. The only question that has to be studied outside the patent act is drafting of a specification. For that I would suggest open USPTO site and there search few patents and read how they are written.
