Assunto:  Try and understand
 
Mensagem:  I agree with Josi. Try to sounds more natural, and is grammatically correct.

However, try and understand is more commonly found on Google searches maybe it is because it's informal. There's a song called "try and understand".

"go + and" or "come + and" are correct, though.

"Children, why don't you go and play outside?"

"Dinner is ready, come and get it!"
