Studying for Patent Bar

Hi,
     How much time should I give myself to study for the Patent Bar?
 
How many months in advance from when I decide to take the exam should I begin preparing?
 
Just want to get an idea of what people have done and found success with...
 
Thanks

I spent almost two months, evenings and weekends, at least 200hrs, probably a bit more.  It was very dry.   Be prepared to throw your text a few times.

200-300 hours appears to be the normal range.  I've probably spent 250 hours so far - retaking the test next week (second time).

When I took the patent bar, I had been out of school for over 20 years.  I spent about 6 months studying.  However, about a month before I took the exam I ramped up the frequency of studying substantially.
