I would like to learn FEM analysis
I think the best way to start is to take a walk-thru class from your VAR.
Once you have the basics down study the help files from inside the software: they should be rich and include formulae.
A good starter project is to simulate a real-world measurement, that is, can you converge on real-world performance and measurement techniques. An advanced project goes further: can you obtain a realistic result simulating measurements for which you do not have the resources to perform in reality.
