I've learnt this the hard way that discipline is truly the only key to success. And here I'm of the opinion that Hannon induces that discipline factor in the piano learning. But let's be practical, discipline is most definitely boring, so I'd limit these exercises to maybe 15 minutes a day, or whatever is comfortable relative to each individual, but never NEVER oppose it totally.

The ultimate test how well you know the music is if you would be able to play it mentally away from the piano. You may need to move your fingers in order to get through the piece at first. It is a advisable to have the score next to you so you can refer to it when you are unclear about what is written. Practice this way until you can play through the entire piece away from the piano hearing all the parts and imagining all the finger and hand movements.
