In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
I've been reading it all, in anticipation of learning group theory before I start university (I plan to start learning as soon as my A levels are over).
At the moment, I am reading about semidirect products and wreath products in my group-theory book and trying to get my head round the definitions. This is definitely not a topic for the faint-hearted.
