Distance vs face to face learning

Hi, I'm looking to start the AAT level 3 course which I want to complete as quickly as I can so I can go onto the level 4 - I have book-keeping qualifications and work in finance but I don't have level 2. If I go to face to face sessions or through a college it means the course has to take a certain length of time but if I can study by distance I can take the exams more or less as I'm ready.
My question is, how long realistically could level 3 take me (predominantly studying evenings / weekends / school holidays only) and would you recommend any particular course provider for distance learning?
many thanks

    I put in about 20-25 hours per week for studying (I have a part time job) and it took me 3 months to complete Level 2, and it seems it'll take me about 4 months to complete Level 3. I am trying to get through it quite quickly though, so generally I'd predict about 5-6 months for people studying at home, if they're prepared to really work at it. :)

    As for a course provider, I study with eagle and they're really great. Very friendly.

    Thankyou Rosie, can you please advise me the package that you've got with Eagle?

    I'm not sure what you mean by package - I basically paid to take level 2 with Eagle, and now I'm paying to take Level 3. If you go to their website, you can see all the details. :)
