It depends on the individual, so it may take you a little longer or a little shorter than some people.
But I did research the same question when I first started studying for certifications - I think the average is about 3-4 months of preparation for someone fairly new to Java programming. If you are only studying 2 hours a day I'd say it would take you a little longer, but it really depends on your aptitude.
It's depand upon individual . i believe before start the scjp training you suppose to read some object oreinted concept books
and some books for java beginners .but if you feel confident you can straight away start scjp preparation.

I had 7 years in MS Visual Foxpro programming, which mainly i coded in Procedural approach. I had limited exposure to many of the OO concepts in practical sense.
Based on my background, how long roughly i will be taking to be 'SCJP' certification ready ?
I am also a procedural language programmer (16 years of iSeries RPG) with practically no real world OO experience. I have been preparing for this exam for about 2 months. I put in about 12 to 15 hours of study a week. I am taking the exam tomorrow. I scored about 60% on the LearnKey ExamMaster exams that came with the book which, according to other posts here, should be enough to pass the exam. For procedural programmers, writing OO practice programs really helps reinforce the concepts.
Good luck with your studies!
