Recommendation for 3rd Party Reference for Solidworks Errors/Warnings?

I have an exceptionally difficult time understanding the error messages and their meanings in Solidworks, even when going the the integrated HELP function. I don't understand what they mean, and it is often too abstract to apply to whatever I am working on.


After multiple undergrad/graduate classes in Solidworks, several text books, multiple tutorial DVDs or online videos, I still struggle with this and inevitably encounter errors that make my project 100x longer and the "fix" or workaround is usually a botched poor-man's excuse for a solution.


So, I ask the community, is there a 3rd party reference (book or plug-in or anything) that will help me to better understand how to correct these errors?  (This goes beyond practice. I have lots of practice, but much of it is hitting a brick wall again and again.)


Please help. Any suggestions are welcome. (I don't have a specific error to show here or a screenshot).  This is multi-year problem for me.


Thanks very much. I appreciate your thoughts.
