T2i and Live View. Help.

Is there much of a trick to using/doing Live View?  I'm planning a trip to the SW.  There will be a lot of scenic/landscape shooting there.  Yes, on a tripod.  So how do you do it?  I recently purchased a nice used T2i, but no manual.  So could someone tell me just:

1) how practical is Live View for this circumstance.

2) how easy is it to actually do

3) can you list a step-by-step procedure for me?

I would be most grateful.

Finally, is this a RAW thing?  Or can Live View be accomplished when shooting JPEG as well.

Thank you for helping me out.
