I am taking exam in May 2001. What should be the ideal time one has to put in for pass? 1)at Course1 ii) course 2 and iii) Maybe both together?

It probably depends on your experience, but here's a suggestion (and it assumes you are as your name suggests studying to pass, and not to learn the material in depth). Take an actual exam in the alloted time (4 hrs.). Multiply the percentage you got WRONG by 360 hrs, and study that many hours (primarily in areas you find more difficult). This is just a rough approximation...don't take it too seriously. My company encourages 360 hrs minimally for exams 1 and 2 regardless of prior knowledge.

p.s. that is 360 * (Percentage wrong) for each exam, not the both of them together.
For the May 2001 exams, you'll have to put in about negative 5000 hours. :grin:

Heh heh ... you should probably aim for the May 2002 exam, not the 2001 one :lol:

The name is no indicator of my intentions. Its just some identity.
The 360 hrs allowed by your company must have been given after some consideration by the seniors of your company

Yes, I believe it is probably as you've said. However, when you say "allowed" it can lead to incorrect assumptions. We are allowed 120 hours of company study time for each of courses 1 and 2, and are expected to put in an additional 240 hrs. of our own time. (for courses 3, 4 and 5 the total is 450 hours - 150 company sponsered). I use the company's standard as my goal... however, if I was aiming to just pass (as others on another have suggested I should) I'd set my goal a little lower.
