Hello friends,

How many months does it take to prepare for the SCMAD certification fully, If I prepare fulltime?

Thanks in Advance..

If you have enough time for full-time preparation like 6 hours daily, it should be about two months, assuming that you have a pretty strong foundation in Java SE.

About five weeks for reading the materials + three weeks for testing your readiness with mock exams.

Hope it helps...
