Smile (HELP) Where to begin?

Hello,

Going through school, I noticed that the subjects I was most interested in were accounting, finance, programming, and mathematics, in no particular order, mainly because I had a knack for each of those areas.

With that said, I'll just get straight to the point. I'm currently trying to find a job so I can get back into school, but in the meantime, I want to start learning on my own time, but I don't know where to start.

Does anyone know a good (free, if possible) place to start learning each of these areas?

-Sygwei

yeah its important to develop your basic understanding first to go for online lectures. you can get it by reading the basic introductory books first and then go for online stuff. this way you will be able to grasp the things quickly specially if move on step by step.

May be youtube is good because some times I feel its not enough with text or pdf guides and the finance related subjects are terrible and boring to me. But as its necessary I have to go as much as I can grasp.
