Assume you have 100% time. You should put 70% on Step1 and 30% on Step2 -> Step3.

During Step1, something you will not be clear, you need to search for more things outside the courses.

You should NOT do the simulation exams (Step3) along with the theory learning step (Step1). Just learn the theory, then complete and fix your knowledge via a simulation exam.

You should NOT delay taking the official exam after the simulation test step. Just register and finish it.


It’s up to your based knowledge and determination.

It’s not difficult I think. It took me 48hrs for DVA, 28hrs for SAA and 2 months for SAP. I can get more but I have no reason now.
