Can I stop the Patent Bar simulation or timer and continue the session at a later?


We intentionally prevent timing disruptions during the USPTO Patent Bar simulation since one of the primary goals of our simulator is to assist candidates in practicing under realistic timed conditions. The only way to assess your level of preparation and get an accurate scoring assessment is to practice in a 3 hour stretch. If you simply want to drill with the questions then we recommend starting and quitting the simulated session as many times as you need to work through every question. You do not need to use an access code for that since you're only prompted to use one prior to saving and scoring your results and there is really no point in scoring a session you have completed that way since it would not be an accurate assessment.
