When I asked the Sudilkover Rebbe about Sefer HaChinuch, he remarked, "It is a gevaldige sefer! I love learning Sefer HaChinuch!" He mentioned that he routinely gives shiurim in this sefer and recommended that I learn it as a way to better appreciate the essence of the mitzvos that Hashem gave us.
The Rebbe advised me that the best way to approach learning this sefer was to begin by learning the mitzvos that related to the parsha of the week. In the cases where the parsha had numerous mitzvos, he suggested first learning those mitzvos that can be observed today before learning the mitzvos that cannot not be performed in our generation.
Finally, the Rebbe recommended that during the weeks of Sefer Bereshis, when there are only three mitzvos for this entire eleven week time period, that I learn these three mitzvos and use the remaining time to learn the mitzvos from Sefer Devarim that I did not have time to learn.
I immediately ordered a copy of the Hebrew/English 5 volume set after I got off the phone with him and started learning it two days later when the FedEx truck delivered it to my front door. I have been learning a little bit each week since Parshas Masei and have greatly enjoyed learning it since that time.
