There are people out there who like to take advantage of the newbie; sad but true. A new guy should never have to fight two guys at once, even in large point games.
It's up to you whether to play in larger games to get a feel for what your entire army is about, or small games where you can only learn about certain units. I learned in a 3000 point game with my Dark Eldar, and still won, so it mostly depends on your own tactical ability and dice-luck.
Thing with Eldar, they really should have been hit-and-running rather than staying in a static position; if an eldar player does this, assault them.
There are some weapons against which you'd need your cover save, since they ignore the regular one, but for the most part your SM army has the save to withstand most of the light Eldar weapons and chew them up with your own.
