Are there nightschool courses I can take before I start my official program?

I will be attending a Civil Engineering Technology Progeam in the fall of 2014 but I do not feel confident however I am share that this is what I want to do as my career. Do you know of any nightschool courses that I can take to strengthen my skills and to give me an advantage in my upcoming course?

Hi Andrew,

We have all felt that doubt, and it is great that it is spurring you on to improve your skills.  I think of night school as something offered at a particular college or university to allow flexibility in the time you take your courses.  To enroll in a class you would have to contact the schools in your area.  However, there are so many options online these days that you are unlikely to really need to go to specific school to brush up in a certain area.  You can try browsing some of the offerings at MIT OpenCourseWare or EdX, and I am sure there are many others.  Even just going through some of the physics and computing topics in Khan Academy could help you feel more at ease with the material.  Try looking at your course load for the fall and see if there are courses that you feel unfamiliar with.  Then you can check out the materials on these or other sites to give you a head start.  Good luck!
