    that's how long you got

    What does "that's how long you got" mean in the the following context:

    - When is it?
    - February 3rd. 17 days.
    - All right, so that's how long you got: You got to learn it during the day, and then I'll help you at night.

    Re: that's how long you got

    It's a non-grammatical (but colloquial) way of saying "So that is how long you have got [to learn it]". The next part should say "You have got to learn it during the day", where "You have got to ..." means "You must".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
