I have to admit that I'm still not clear on this. What should my goals be? I
can often, (but not often enough), figure out the grammatical form of a verb
when I see it in context. Now I would like to change that "often" to
"usually" or even "almost always", at least when reading the GNT.

How should I approach studying this?
What forms do I really need to learn?
