Well it’s finally happening. I’m going back to school officially. Just took the Accuplacer test for a local community college. Been planning to do it for years. Tested into “any” college level writing/reading course and, thankfully, into college algebra (math 102). I would have been very unhappy if I had to take elementary arithmetic or algebra again, as I already use that stuff regularly. I will probably start classes this June. Then, in half a decade, I will be both a licensed electrician and a certified engineer.

      Well, going back is good enough. It took me 20 yrs to, but when I did I found it helped to put certain things in my life into better perspective. Good luck. :)

      Thanks. I think I’m going to need it, working full time with a family and taking 12 credits. It’s a lot of work.

      It's never too late! Kudos on you for doing this. It's easy becoming complacent with age and going back to school shows you're not.
