That depends a lot on your current experience you hold as well as on your abilities in the amount of time you can put in studies whilst working.
Don't think about the OCA and OCP at the same time. One thing at a time - OCA first and nothing else. You may find yourself exhausted and will want a break.
Both exams are hard, OCP harder. I'd say 3 months studying a lot and doing some practice tests can get you there (assuming you know some Java foundations).
Please tell how much experience you have? When did you set your goal to go and sit an exam?

It all depends on your experience with Java and speed in learning of course. The OCP will take a lot longer than the OCA to prepare for.
