Question Step 3 Prep: Duration needed

I remember in the other steps forums seeing posts and polls about how long we should prepare, or what people have done.
I don't see anything for step 3, any advice. I'm planning on preparing for it before residency.
Any advice?

Also, how long does it usually take from the application to actually getting the "ok" and your elegibility period?
