Most awesome skill > Patent Searching > FI / F term

For new patent searchers, the overall proficiency building and practice over commercial databases and usually used national / regional databases, may take a long time.

However, the usual question following that is ' What next?'

The most awesome skill you can develop once you are through with the usual skills, is develop proficiency in using FI/F for JP patents.

In my opinion, it is the most powerful weapon in a patent searcher's hand, if used wisely, and without doubt, the most defined patent classification ever.

Great practice in it can get you exactly matching / on target references within minutes.
