How is the 300 hours calculated? -- JS Algorithms and Data Structures Cert


I am tracking my time with Rescue Time and would really like to know how I am tracking against the typical/expected timeframe calculated by the team at FCC. How can I find out how long each section/exercise should ‘theoretically’ take?

i understand that everybody is different, and this is not hard and fast, but I am a bit nerdy like this and really want to know how the 300 hours has been calculated and the time broken down by the elements in the course. It’ll help me to gauge how I am tracking (about on target for the average, a bit slower, whatever).


I don’t think it’s been broken down like that. Sorry.

I think that it’s a rough overall estimate for a complete novice dedicating an hour or two per day.
