It seems I often have difficulty really understanding many of the concepts relating to electrical theory and circuit design. It's very frustrating because I do want to have a deeper knowledge and am currently studying the Extra class material, albeit slowly. After being inactive for years, I sailed through the Tech test pretty easily. General was a bit harder but not by much. Now, while I only have two chapters to go, the Extra class material is quite difficult for me. I was never great at math or science, and I'm having to go back and consult sites like Kahn Academy to learn about logarithms, basic trig, etc, and consult other tutorial sites for more information on electronic theory. Does anyone else struggle with this sort of thing? My dad was an electrical engineer his whole career and knows this stuff like the back of his hand. I'm a musician and teacher who has always been fascinated with technology and electronics, but struggle to have a deep, thorough understanding of things. I'm getting through the material, memorizing formulas, and passing the practice tests, but really want to have a deeper understanding, and even some hands on, practical experience.
