RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
I passed the ТРКИ 2 (B2) test a couple of years ago. The hardest part was the writing, where you had to learn formal vocab for a complaint letter and some other stuff that's probably not super useful. For the grammar, you just have to take many tests and see what your weak points are. At a b2 level they already expect you to get your cases right 90% of the time in writing and they also target more complex things like subtle differences in the use of verbal aspect.

For vocab, your best best is to read proper books as soon as you can, even if it takes frequent word checking. Listening to some podcasts or youtube video audios is also very useful. I wrote more about this in this post:

At the end of the day though, the only shortcut to fluency is to live/spend a lot of time in a Russian speaking country.

If you live around Russian speakers I'd estimate you can go from absolute beginner to fluent in around 2 years.
