How long does AVBK take?

I'm studying independently with access to resources, tutors, etc. online.
Advanced Bookkeeping is my second Lvl3 module, and I'm busy planning it out to fit around work.
I can study something like 8 hours per week (bit of a nerd).

Does anyone here have some advice as to how long this module might take?

Many thanks in advance!

    AVBK is one of the bigger modules. If you've done the Management module it'll be about the same as that if not I'd say about 1.5* longer than the smaller modules as an estimate.

    I can't really give a time as everyone studies at different paces (even over an hour) and would want different amounts of revision work. I was generally fine by reading the osborne book and then doing practice papers but I know some people would want to do lots of questions as they went along.

    Post-exam comment, for anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation: I ended up taking the AVBK exam after about six weeks of self-study. I passed well (hurray!), but am now really tired - fitting it in around (sometimes during) the commute, and doing short bits during my lunch break cost me quite a bit of energy!

    So I'm going to give myself a little break to catch my breath before launching into FAPR B)
