    Everyone is different mate, theres no set rule for how long it should take to study. Best thing to do is read the book and do some practice tests to see if you are ready.

    Hi As Raffaz has said everyone has different styles and speeds of learning, What you would proberbly be best off doing is taking a practice test then examining the scores and brush up on the lowest scoring targets. Book your exam for a month or two ahead depending on how much studying you think you need to do (you dont know how much a looming exam focuses the mind). Remeber also that absolutly no one feels "ready" for the exam, you've just got to get to a point where you think you can have a good stab at it and go for it.

    Dpends on the study time available, noting that 20 hours per week, every week, for as long as it takes would be ideal if you can do it...

    Then study up and test lab the lab exercises to the max.

    Next take any decent exam prep questions you have and ensure you understand the test questions.

    Focus on your weaker areas, and after say another 6 weeks give it a go.
