Be yourself…and believe in yourself. You have an abundance of talents and gifts, but for some reason this exam tends to instill an unwarranted sense of fear and doubt. We believe that only by being yourself (and for us, ourselves…quirky, energetic, passionate, and data geeks), can we truly make a difference and help. If we aren’t true to who we are, all of this just becomes “another” study program. We strive for more…to provide resources, study guides, etc…but to also provide a framework for your continued success. Being different is a wonderful thing. And it’s the differences that matters. Sometimes it’s small..like the difference between passing and failing is only one question. Sometimes it’s large…like the difference between a personal conversation with a friend vs an automated call center. But at the end of the day, difference matters.
With both in house and partners working continually on our platform, we are ensuring we continue to bring you the best platform possible to aid your studying.
From email, phone, forums, and now live chat, our support of our users is leading the pack. From basic studying questions to in depth rule inquiries, we are here to help.
We continually refine our materials to include any rule changes, update (and create) exam questions for the current law, ensuring that you are best prepared for you exam day.
Wysebridge is the modern day studying platform. As the first solely online patent bar study program, we are pioneering how individuals study for this ever changing exam.
Data drives insights, which is how we’ve built our system. From real time feedback, statistical reporting of testing results, and a whole lot more under the hood, you are getting a platform built on data.
Many of our alumni stay engaged. and have begun to support each other’s endeavors. We’ve added some veteran IP professionals to the mix, all designed to not just help you pass the exam, but continue to help you succeed post exam.
A little Bit About Us
Wysebridge came to be through community. At the time (in 2011-early 2012) when some of us were studying for the exam, we were frustrated over:
The high cost of every study program out there
The lack of personal attention
The inability to get guidance
The archaic study programs being used (shipping CD’s)?
This led to an initial complete dissection of the patent bar exam. We realized that every program that was on the market did not adequately prepare individuals to pass. They were either too simplistic in their approaches and missed a lot of crucial nuances of the exam or they were to content heavy (some courses actually stated they wanted to ensure you were an expert in patent law)?! Worse yet, many of these programs were charging a small fortune (and still do)!
Talk about insanity. This exam is nothing more than what it said it was: A BAR. Get enough questions right, and you pass. The exam doesn’t measure your knowledge. It doesn’t prove your worth. It’s a “simple” multiple choice exam. Period.
Starting from there, we began to apply best learning practices as we refined our materials, laying out a course (for ourselves) to study. We quickly realized that to pass this exam, you need part knowledge, part skill, a healthy dose of confidence and a supportive community to keep you going when you feel completely frustrated. We began to tutor and share the materials we were developing with peers like yourself as they were in the same boat: fed up and frustrated with the current landscape of review materials.
As more and more individuals passed using our system, we realized we had a method that worked, a team of individuals who loved to help others, and a willingness to lay it on the line so anyone could use the program affordably. Thus, Wysebridge was born from a desire to help…to help ourselves pass, and to help our friends and colleagues pass, in a less stressful, more efficient manner. We combined our post AIA studies with insights from IP experts and CLO’s, added our love of data and analysis and built a studying community entirely online to accommodate the emerging generation of patent bar exam takers.

Bryan and the Wysebridge team have done an excellent job of selecting and condensing the material tested on the patent bar. This course teaches you exactly what you need in order to pass. I would not have passed the patent bar without Wysebridge's MPEP summaries, AIA material and sample questions. I recommend Wysebridge to anyone looking for a comprehensive, yet affordable patent bar courseJuan Miranda Associate at Taylor, Porter, Brooks & Phillips
Motivation. These guys are highly motivated and have created something special in Wysebridge. That motivation extends not just the implementation of a great review course and study program that is dynamic and inventive and unlike any other study program, but to sending out updates in the patent industry, study tips, and a healthy dose of ... motivation. The patent bar requires a great deal of discipline and determination to surmount. Having completed it they understand this and are very supportive and encouraging to those completing the program and sitting for the exam.Adam HoffmanPatent Attorney at Adam Hoffman PLLC
I am very happy to say that I passed the USPTO Registration Exam (i.e.the "Patent Bar") - on my first attempt!
Wysebridge Patent Bar Review is one of the most cost-effective preparatory courses currently on the market. Questions are up-to-date and accurately reflect the many minor changes to the exam on account of the AIA. Thanks again Wysebridge.Navin Bora Patent Attorney at Lempia Summerfield Katz LLC
