How long does it usually take between submitting the application for the UK citizenship (assuming using NCS, correct documents, etc.) and getting the answer?

I mean specifically application AN (5 year stay, naturalisation).

This booklet from the government's site states 2-4 weeks.


The booklet states 2-4 weeks for acknowledgement of the application...this is different from the decision which can take longer I assume.
