Knowing the latest development over SCEA after Aug 1st, I was wondering if I can complete my part-1 preparation in 3 months and somehow manage to submit assignment in 20-25 days after written exam? I donot want to stretch it till end of July as my baby is due in Aug

I also want to confirm if I clear part-1 and fail in either in Part-2 or Part-3 , while resubmitting the assignment after Aug 1st do I require to take course?

For part 1, it depends on how much you know now. If you have a sufficient background, one month is sufficient. For part 2/3, it depends how much time you can spend in a week. You'll be motivated by a due date so should be fine.

No, you can resubmit without a course. See the other FAQ we've collected.

It took me 27 hours. Sun/Oracle says 40-80 hours. Cade/Sheil says 25-35 hours.

I've spent 2 months for part I and 30 hours for part II. Maybe these numbers will help you. (I'm working with software architecture for the last 14 years).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
