Hey guys, found an interesting read here (it's a 2-parter):

The time you spend studying will greatly depend on your previous experience and study habits. I always cringe when people ask me how long I studied for any of the labs that I’ve taken. It’s a floating measuring stick. For my Routing and Switching lab (my first), I clocked in a good 2,000+ hours over the course of 13 months, and that’s just for studying. To put that in perspective, there are 2,080 hours in a full-time work year (assuming 40 hours per week for 52 weeks). That was starting from ground zero and playing around with my equipment—a lot!
Climb a mountain, tell no one.
