JoeB,
 
I think a lot of it depends on how well you pick up new concepts.  I used a introductory Patent Law book and the old exams and passed on the first try while studying about 40 hours over the course of 10days while working full time.  My personal opinion is that the point of the exam is to not know everything there is to know about patents and the MPEP but more to know the basics of patents and how to find the rest in the MPEP efficiently.
 
You can read about what I did in a thread on the second page of this forum.  Its titled  "10-day crash course for the patent bar exam".
 
Good luck whatever you decide.

Thanks for everybody's responses. I guess I'll take the bullet and dish out the money to register for the exam. I have a EE degree. how long should it take to get approed?

Thank you everybody for the replies. I will start working on the patent material immediately and see where I stand a month from now.  
 
What is discouraging is that if I am not ready to take the test before October, I will have to go through the application process all over again.

Regarding the 3 months rule, it says “An application for the USPTO administered examination must be received three (3) months before the scheduled date of the examination” on the requirement bulletin.  Does it mean you have to take the exam within 3 months after you get the approval from the USPTO?
