    Good evening Pete :D

    I personally would recommend about 45mins to an hour a day, I think this is a reasonable time for the information to soak in and if you study too much, your brain will eventually switch off :twisted:

    If you have the time to put in an hour a day I'd personally say 3months is a reasonable timescale. But understand that this can vary dependant on how quick you learn things, amongst other factors. I'd advise you to start taking practice exams after you feel that you have finished studying and if you're hitting above 90% then book yourself in the exam! :D

    Also If you are feeling a bit hesitant as to wether or not you are confident enough to take the exam, book the exam and study accordingly, that'll motivate you!

    Hope that helps a bit. :thumbleft

    don't over study this can be worse than studying too little as you will burn yourself out, this is what I did although I passed but I got confused on some questions in the essentials exam.

    I did around 2 sessions of an hour every day sometimes I only did one, depending on my work hours.
