Going into uni for EE quite soon, looking for resources to teach myself the very basics of electrical and electronics systems as well as computer science and anything else I might need to know. Basically I'm looking to learn, for now, all I can about the guts of the average house-hold electronic, enough where I can maintain general maintenance and maybe even get a little creative.

What else should I be studying like hell before I get into school that will prepare me, the basics of EE if you will?

Pic unrelated.

You can look up those sites that teach you all about circuits to get a very basic background. Look at the books that universities are using (most have public facing class pages) and use those books to teach yourself as well as online videos. You'll be looking to learn in the EE department: physics, electrical circuits (using mostly passives except op amps), electronics (getting into transistors), signal integrity (if you want to mess with high frequency PCBs), and probably some other stuff I'm forgetting (which you should look at a university curriculum to fill in. On the CS side you need to start learning a language and in the case of embedded programming you'll want to focus on C and assembly (but don't worry too much on assembly yet unless you just want to do x86 and ARM). Get a good understanding of computer architecture and how to work boolean algebra and design things with gates (basic digital logic stuff). Move on to Verilog/VHDL and work with CPLDs and FPGAs if you want to get into custom ASIC work. Learn a real high level language like Python to help you make useful applications that don't need high performance.

MSEE (to be) here. Browse these at your leisure.

Learn how to write drivers for low level devices and how to program AVRS
It sounds fucking awful, and I'm not going to lie to you, it kinda is, but it's something that they're not going to teach you how to do very well, and something that you're fucking going to need to do more than anything else ever.
