What is the minimum study time with max benefit for PMP exam. I don't have too much time, I am very quantitatively oriented, and have been approved for taking the exam.

The average preparation time for the PMP is around two months, see: http://www.projectmanagementquestions.com/4341/what-is-the-average-preparation-time-for-the-pmp

However, I have seen people pass who only studied for 2 weeks (but the study was really concentrated in these two weeks).

If you want to opt for the two week adventure, then here's what you should do:

- Take a vacation from your work
- Read the PMBOK at least twice
- Study Rita's books
- Acquaint yourself with the PMP style of questions. Nowadays the questions are more situational. So in order to answer them correctly you have to think the same way the PMI thinks, that there is something as an ideal project management environment where everything can be handled/resolved by just referring to the relevant section in the PMBOK
- Have faith in yourself and your skills

Good luck!
