My question, on the surface, is an impossible one. It asks 'how much time one should allocate to work through the material in Tutorial Vol. 1'!
In my case, I'm familiar with core Java and have spent maybe 320 hours (spread over 3-4 years) actually developing with it. The majority of my time is spent in another language with similar syntax. I consider my Java EE experience to be almost nothing.
Assuming 'average' skills, would such a developer want to spend 4 weeks, 4 months or 4 years studying the material covered in Vol. 1?

If you have a good basic knowledge of Java, which evidently you do, I'd say closer to 4 weeks -- depending on how much time you have to spend on the Tutorial, of course.
Our goal is to make it easy for a Java EE novice to learn the technologies.
