Microstrip characterization with VNA

Hi, I am self teaching myself how to use our VNA at school as I think it would be an important tool to learn in the real world. I have access to a 8722 VNA and a E8364B PNA and I want to find the characterisitic impedance, phase velocity, then use that to find the dielectric constant of a microstrip (up to 40GHz).  I am looking for a sort of cook book method (step by step) if you will, on how to do these measurements.  I have looked through the instruction manual but I didn't really get much out of how to actually find these parameters.  Thank you.
