As mentioned in a previous post, I've given myself a time frame of 100 hours to prepare for the exam. As you can see from the table of contents above, the book consists of 14 chapters. Assuming that I can get through one chapter per week and that I manage to get 7 hours of study each week (1 hour per day), that gives us 7 hours x 14 chapters = 98 hours total. Pretty damn close to 100 hours! Even though I've already studied a lot of this material, I will try to avoid the temptation of jumping from chapter to chapter and instead I'll try to progress through the book sequentially. Hopefully the time frame will be enough to cover all the material, however it is not set in stone. I won't attempt the exam until I feel completely confident in my abilities to excel and until I have covered all of the required material.
