I think that depends on your available time over the 2/3/4 months. I'm putting in about 4 hours a day for 8 weeks, and am not sure that it'll be enough. Given, I'm only two weeks in. Ask again when results come out in August.

Cool, it's too late for me to start for June, I'll probably go for the October sitting, depending if I passed LTAM or not, feeling okay about it but you never know

Here's my post from the February thread about how I did it in exactly 3 months. Personally, I don't think 2 months would've been enough for me, but depends on whether or not you have background with the material. If you're wondering based on the wait for April LTAM results, then this post was essentially written for you lol (I started studying for October STAM as soon as I got my MLC results last summer).

I always like to hear about/see a detailed breakdown like this to guide my studying (even when using different materials), so hopefully this helps those of you who have started or will start studying for February STAM and are thinking about materials/study time/etc.
