Models which I have obtained so far using multiple linear regression where in the form of: Y=a1X1+a2X2+...anXn. Therefore it was very easy to see factors important for the prediction of variable Y. I was wondering if survival analysis can give me similar output ? Which type of modelling would you suggest me to use (e.g. Cox parametric hazard models) ?

I am not familiar with the logistic regression. Is the knowledge about logistic regression necessary to understand how survival analysis works ?

I would very much appreciate your help.

I would be also very grateful if you could suggest me a good source of information on this topic (regression models for survival data).
