You should plan on completing between 350 and 400 practice questions online, plus the benchmark exam, prior to taking the exam. If your scores are not within passing range at that point, you may need to complete more questions.
Most students are able to finish the exam within the alloted time, without being rushed.
Assuming you are working full time while preparing for the examination, you should allow yourself one or two weeks to read through the material and another one week to complete practice exams. The total study time is typically two to three weeks.
