I need some direction. I am simply a poser. :) I have a BA and MBA, but now wish I had studied something different (particularly ME). I am a die-hard automotive performance enthusiast. I have Heywood's book as well as Taylor's 2 volumes. I even attended Heywood's week long class on IC engines last summer. I still feel that too much of that is over my head. I plan on attacking the math portion by taking Calculus again (17+ years after I first took it) at my local community college. I will likely try to take a couple of their engineering courses, and physics refresher is a must as well . I have read several other automotive performance books, but most them are either very high-level and/or are oriented towards the 'mechanics' but not the function, reasons, principles, etc. I really want to persue a Masters of Engineering in Engine Systems: http://mees.engr.wisc.edu/index.lasso This is a long-term plan. I would like to get started with some of the basics and go from there. If you have any suggestions or input, they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
