Hi Guys,

How long did most you take or planning to take before sitting the exam. I would like to hear from all, but in particulat those who have sat and passed the 70-290

    It took me about a month for the 70-270, and 3 months for the CCNA. I am currently giving myself a little over a month for this one. Mostly because I am busy as hell with work.

    Well, a month alone doesn't really mean much to be honest. A month could mean you put in 40 hours a week and it could also mean you spent a few hours a week.

    Personally, I spent about 40 hours a week on 290 and did it in about 3-4 weeks. So I'd say about a total of 120-150 hours went into studying for this exam.

    I spent 8 weeks studying for 70-290, at about 15 hours per week, for a total of around 120 hours.

    I spend about 15 hours on the weekend, and maybe 10 hours during the week. So I would say around 150.
