Hi all,
I would like to know that, on average how long does the assignement take.
The question is that I have just downloaded my assignment today. And I have been going through the site since I started my part 1. And passed it with good marks.

Some of you have taken this assigment how long can it take the person like myself who is usually working from 9 - 17h00 would take me.

I would appreciate your response.

Sun say that

Obviously, the amount of time taken by a candidate to create a solution to the assignment varies greatly. A fast candidate might create a solution in about 40 hours, but a more typical time requirement might be about 80 hours. If you spend a lot more than 100 hours on the project, then you might be creating something that is more detailed than the requirement, or you are lacking some of the skills necessary to complete the assignment.

However they something similar for SCJD, and that takes most people far longer than Sun says it should
