  How much time I should spend studying when taking a CHAYA course?

It really depends on when and where you start.  You should start the exam preparation at least three months ahead.  Then studying at least 16 hours per week is recommended.  Two hours on each week day and 6 hours during weekends.  The first hour of CHAYA review class will be focused on these exam preparation strategies.
