Hey guys, this is my second time writing this first time browser crashed and lost it all I hate it when that happens. Anyways I will make this one shorter. My name is Tom, dropped out of formal school in 7th grade due to family troubles, got my GED recently I am 28. I live in Las Vegas and don't plan on leaving in the next 5 years or so, so my options for school are UNLV or the local community college. I usually work with cars in some type repairing or restoring I have loved them from a young age, but if I had all the money in the world I would design systems to make electric cars a reality. Batteries/Charging systems and the like. So here are my questions. 1. What type of engineering should I take to further my goals it seems like electrical engineering but I figure I should ask first. 2. Either way it seems like I would need a good foundation of calculus and physics and before I learn that I know I need algebra, so since everyone here most likely did that already where should I start in that regard? Sorry this post was not as exciting as you may have hoped also, I grasp complicated things well and I do not believe that this is beyond me I just lack the knowledge to apply it in the field I wish to work in.
