A: Firstly, you need to find out if you qualify to sit for the patent bar. Do you at least a BS from some hard-core science or engineering? You need to take a look through the USPTO website, which will guide you through the process.

But to answer your question, there are a number of courses that will prep you for the patent bar exam preparation courses. 20 years ago I took a course from PLI, and it is still an excellent source, but there are others.

You may want to peruse some subreddits dedicated to patent law or patent lawyers, to get more critiques of various courses.
