Back to school

I feel like Rodney Dangerfield, except without the money.

Starting school in about 2 weeks. Majoring in Health Information Technology that'll get me an Associates. From there, I may go for the Health Information Management, a BA degree.

First up, 3 classes. A general Algebra class since I haven't taken math in 30 years, I figure I need to brush up on it before taking the required Math class. And a Medical Terminology class along with an Intro to Computers class crazy Stupid requirements.

Thanks Dave. Yeah, I was thinking they knew I had a Mac and needed special classes for the Winblows stuff. laugh

Funny thing is, I basically did this as a job for the past 6 years. I digitally archived the psychiatric records. So now I'm just going to make it official and get a degree smile

My hope is that when I'm finished and have a nice job, I can go back to my old employer and thank them for letting me go.

If you get perplexed by the algebra, you might check out the Khan Academy videos on Youtube. It is a wonderful resource for just about any academic subject you can think of.

I concur with the Khan Academy on math. A couple years ago I spent some time on their site trying to find problems with it. I found none. But i did find some creative ways to explain topics. I recommend
