    The typical study time seems to be around 8 weeks, give or take. Some people tack on a couple extra weeks if they are studying for both PPD and PDD at the same time.

    I did around 5 weeks with the majority of the studying happening the last couple weeks before the exam.

    I studied for both PPD and PDD for 8 weeks, but I think it depends on how quickly you read. I probably could have used some more time (either longer study period or more hours each day - only studied 1-2 hours most days). 

    It may not be for everyone, but I encourage everyone to study for both PPD and PDD together and take them close together (~1 week). It's a lot of info but there is a significant amount of overlap (I'd say about 75%) and you'll be reading the same information again if you take them separately. Totally up to you, though. 

    Good luck!

    Hi Scott,

    I am struggling with both PPD and PDD, do you know of tutors or thought of tutoring yourself? I am very frustrated and need help. I feel like I am studying something wrong. Please email me at
