I am hoping to wade into an Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering degree, but I have been out of college for almost 10 years. My last major exposure to math was good grades in Algebra 2, half of the Advanced Math textbook, and an elective level (about half the book) in Physics - all in High School.
If I spend good time on Math, I tend to grasp it well. Currently I am working in the Computer Science field as a Database Admin/Data Analyst/Business Intelligence Engineer, but I am having a bit of a crisis as I do not like my current line of work all that much. Also, to progress further it is extremely helpful to have more Math + Stats (e.g. to become a legit Data Scientist). An Engineering Degree with a minor focus on stats/research would give me the chance to diversify my current career while also learning in an area that gives me career change options.
I know that there are many others in my situation (wanting to return to STEM college programs/learning after many years out of high school), so my question is:
How does one quickly review Algebra 2 + Advanced Math, take the prerequisite Calculus and Physics needed to get into an engineering program, and then assess any other remaining areas that may still need brushing up on? I am trying to get the educator's perspective on the best resources for going it alone or in a limited web class setting, as I cannot do formal campus classes until I would be ready to enroll in a program. Also, it is really important that I do not spend a ton of time on wrote review if I can avoid it - that tends to really kill my enthusiasm when I am working problem sets that are super fundamental. With that in mind, are there resources targeted for people in my situation?
