I'm trying out the EK verbal strategy and I'm having trouble getting the hang of it. For those of you that actually "mastered" the EK strategy, how long did it take?

Also, I'm really confused about the EK verbal book because I understand their strategy and how it works when they explain it in their verbal guide (4 chapter small book) but when I do their passages and look at their answers, it seems as if they get the answer from a specific part of the passage rather than explaining how the main idea relates to the question.
I'm having trouble finding out how the main idea relates to the question and how specific the main idea should be. For me, the EK explanations don't really help me. They just point out the specific lines that tell you where the answer can be found. Seems contradictory to what they're suppose to be teaching us according to their strategy.
