Which time you are talking about:

If the time for certification then it is a 3 hours paper and if you are talking about the time to prepare for the certification then its totally depends on person to person and knowledge. If you have already experience in ABAP and have done some project then it will take lesser time else it will take more time. If you put more effort for certification then again it will take less time. Prep time all depends on you.
