ATTENTION: People who have recently graduated from highschool in the last 10 years, or who is still attending... I have a few questions. Course selection is coming up, and I'm trying to fit all my courses in. For those of you who took automotive classes in highschool, how helpful was it? Timetable was filled up this year so I couldn't take it, but I am just wondering. How helpful was it? I am looking at the description the first part sounds boring. For my future I wan't to be something in the trades/ttech industry, wheter it be a welder, machinst, mech. engineer, something along those lines. What I am arguing is, do I really need it? I figure I know at least half of what that course will teach me, but I just know it about chevy's and GMs from this site, and taking about stuff around here. Not any of that import crap we will probably be focusing on at school.. BUT when I do it at home I will only be teaching myself stuff I actually do. I don't know much about wiring, plmbing or anything. But my timetable doesn't really allow auto tech in. I don't know. Have a headache!!
