2 hrs a day for 10 weeks. I had paid APICS books and self study access.

I studied for about two months before the CSCP exam. I would recommend studying at least that long, if not longer. The exam is pretty comprehensive, so you'll need to know a lot of material.

About two months, one hour per day at least. The exam is challenging, but it's definitely doable with enough preparation.

One month. I would advise studying a little bit each day, rather than trying to cram everything in at the last minute as I did. The exam is very challenging, and there is a lot of material to cover.
