I'm going though it right now and it takes hell of a time. trying to spend 1 hours a day for it (today it has been the fifth day) and it's going really, really slow. I suppose it will take more than 1 year, as the problems get harder with each level.
how long have you been studying CT-Art? and how do you study it, do you just look at the position for a few seconds and throw in the check or capture and see what happens, or do you calculate variations systematically until you're positive on a winning certain move?
