Having trouble understanding electrical engineering

I want to become an electrical engineer. I want to know how all the things around me work. I want to ask questions and piece together the puzzles of the electrical world that's home, but I don't know how. It feels foreign in my mind, like something's broken that I can't fix. Could I get some advice or help? Thanks.

Hi Molly,

I'm not sure if you are actually studying for your engineering degree or not, but that is the first step.  No one expects you to understand it all if you haven't even started taking classes.  If you are having trouble with a particular class then I suggest you seek out tutoring or study groups.  Often other students in the same class could also benefit by going over problems with someone struggling through the same material.
