My first recommendation would definitely be to just use it for a while. Get used to its interfaces and how it thinks. Then you can start digging around inside it and get a better feel for how things work because you will have a better understanding of how they fit into the whole.

Look at samples and any tutorials. You're right, trying to go through every class is crazy. Just treat the engine like any other set of libraries or API... you wouldn't try to learn DirectX by looking at the source!

Learning to program would be a good start.

I would have said to start updating the resume, but your answer is a bit more tactful.

Yup. There has to be some part of the game you can look at. Entities, effects, scripts... something.
All those are going to touch all the main engine routines in some way. From there you can start looking into the workings of each routine.
