Hi @Athan123 

This really depends on how much 'hands-on' experience you already posses: If you've been working all day with Palo Alto devices for the past 6-12 months you will only need a few hours to study up on some of the main topics. If you have no experience at all, it will take you about at least a week of fulltime study (several weeks if you spread the load to an hour or a few hours per day)
