It depends on your background. If starting from scratch, I heard it can be done in ~1 month.

To me the answer depends on your motivation for taking the exam. If you just want to pass then, sure you can do it in a month by reading a good book. However, if you want to understand then it is going to take a lot longer, and some practical experience would be good....
