Time you need depends on your back ground, I mean your capacity to speak & write in English is really very crucial, other than that, you need to watch some videos to show you, how to conduct the encounter, because it is not just based on your medical back ground. The only important book is FA.
For my preparation it took a little more than usual because I had no study partner, so I trained my spouse to be my partner & it worked very well.
I used CES videos, I think they are very helpful.
