I did the latter and passed the infamous August 1998 exam. (Actually, I spent three months studying.)

I took the class first then spent about 100 hours studying before taking the test and failing miserably.  I took the BAR/BRI class and it does not prepare you for the computerized exam.  I would take a class but also read the thread herein "becoming a patent agent/attorney," get the Bullseye prep materials and practice with the CATPrep patent bar simulator software.  Taking a class gives you a basic idea of what to expect, then you can study more efficiently.  2-3 months of studying is not unreasonable.
