I'm solid on making basic parts, extrudes, fillets, cuts, etc, not bad at large assemblies, learning FEA, trying to learn 3d sketches (to make a frame). splines and lofts are some things I haven't messed with yet.

I've got 2 textbooks from a class I took last year, they're pretty basic, mostly using 2d sketches to make parts, with limited lessons in 3d. I'm also taking a class to learn finite element analysis functions in solidworks
