I have spent about half of my career doing this. I have learned that it usually has more to do with the skill of the person that wrote the code than your own. Some people write easy to follow code with documentation to help you through the rough parts. Others write spaghetti code that is really hard to figure out. I call this latter group the KIA programmers.
when you see a really large set of code that someone else wrote and you can figure the code in a glimsp.
