Okay so I'm 31 almost 32 and I'm changing careers, and after reading some of the threads here I'm getting a little nervous. I went to work straight out of high school and ended up co-owning a carpet cleaning business and running that for several years. I recently decided to go back to school, and in fact I'm scheduled to start on Dec 2 at Kaplan University. I'm going for my bachelors in IT with an emphasis on network administration, but like I said after reading several threads here I'm getting very nervous about this. I have no experience in this area, but I'm very fascinated by working on computers the technical aspect of it. By that I mean how they work, how they communicate, and just the sheer scope of things we're able to accomplish with them. I'm not a complete techno noob, but I'm definitely outclassed here on this forum. I guess my real question would be if anyone has any advice to help get me started. Like what I should focus on that I probably won't pick up at school, and anything about doing classes completely online? Sorry for jumping all over the place but this is a huge change for me, and my nerves are staring to get to me.
