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

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.

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).
