Here at PRG, we regularly get a number of questions about the Patent Bar Exam and the PRG Patent Bar Review course.  We’ve put together a FAQ section on the PRG website, which answers some of the most common questions about the Patent Bar Exam and PRG Review Course.  Here are a few of those questions:

Q: I know nothing about patent law. Is your Bar Review Course suitable for me?

A: Yes. Our materials are designed with the express purpose of assisting you in passing the USPTO Exam, but it is our goal to teach you patent law in the process, so that once you pass, you will be an effective patent attorney or agent.

Q: How do I register to take the Patent Bar Exam?

A: Please visit the USPTO’s Office of Enrollment & Discipline website. Once there, select “Examination Registration.” This site will answer any and all Exam-related questions, including requirements to sit for the Exam and how the Exam is administered.

Q: What does the Classroom or Video Bar Review Course tuition cover?

A: The Course tuition covers all lectures and instructional materials; for the Classroom course, it does not cover travel expenses, hotel accommodations or meals. We do, however, provide morning and afternoon refreshments at the Classroom Course. Shipping within the continental US and Canada is included in the tuition price; overseas purchasers incur an additional shipping cost (please contact our office via email: registrar@patentresources.com, if you are an overseas purchaser).

Q: What is the difference between the Classroom and Video Bar Review Courses?

A: With the Classroom Course, you attend five days of lectures in a live classroom setting. The Video Course consists of approximately 40 hours of lectures via our Video on Demand player. The printed materials for both Courses are the same and both provide access to ExamWare™.
