How often is your patent bar material updated?

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

We get regular queries from candidates for the USPTO Patent Registration Exam asking about the question sets and answers used in our Patent Bar Simulator offerings.

Typically, we do not modify the original exam questions in any way. If subsequent MPEP updates invalidate a question, then we simply flag that question and accept all answers for scoring purposes. The primary intent of our simulator is to enable candidates to practice with a similar interface as the one used during the official USPTO exam and to offer such a practice under timed conditions.
