I do graduate work, so I'll have to work a FEM analysis.

    What would be your answer if I ask you which is the best anti-virus software?
    Well you can name one over here, but I don't think so each one reading this answer will agree to that.
    Same is true for software - any software - analysis software in this case. Different companies have provided different approaches to simulate products using software. Each one is better in some way than the others. It is purely a choice of requirement, sometimes budget, and even knowledge of it. But one thing is sure that no company can bet that their software gives 'the' accurate results. Believe me, no results from any software are accurate, they are just near to accurate.
    So chose wisely!! :-)

    for SolidWorks you can use Cosmos works. But this module you should install and Add-in

    There are lot many like ANSYS, autodesk multiphysics, nastran, abaqus etc...ansys costs more. :)

    if you know the theoretical knowledge of FEM, then ANSYS is preferred for accuracy. and ya hypermesh will boost up you precision.

    I agree with Mr. Sahay Panchal.
    But going by my experience, It changes with what kind of analysis you want to perform. Is it linear, dynamic, Non linear, thermal?
    I personally prefer HyperWorks because I have HyperMesh along many solvers suiting the analysis type.
