Plan your time carefully!

It'll probably take you anywhere from 3 to 7 hours to read through this entire tutorial -- but it may take even longer. It really depends on how fast you read and how much of the material is new to you. Some lessons can be completed in as little as 10 minutes, but others might take around 90 minutes to complete. The longer you take with each lesson, the more you'll get out of it, so take as much time as you need to let it all sink in.
