it depends on your particular circumstance. If you study 8 hrs a day 6 months should be good.

A very stereo typical question! You should explore this foum, the polls and threads extensively. But just to give u an idea. 6-9 otnhs is average time and 2-3 reads is ideal. Most people are comfortable with 3 reads!

really the only person who can answer that is "you". Everyone learns different and at different pace. so just take everything as ball park.. You could be ready in 1 month.
