What're some resources to learn IT stuff that aren't complete shit? [spoiler] I'm not sure if this should be posted in here or /r/ sorry [/spoiler]

There's a shitload of stuff, were you focusing on some specific certification or something? Networking, windows server.. etc?

Well I kinda just want to get in the general IT business? Like fixing/troubleshooting computers for schools and stuff. Just so much of it I'm not sure where to start.

CompTIA A+ is the absolute basic start point.
Start there. Memorize it. If you can withstand memorizing the industry manufacturing names for ever so slightly different cable connectors, and the individual throughputs for each different connection type
Then you'll probably do alright in "IT", depending on where you specialize.
If you can't, stop now, give up, don't even fucking bother. Because that's all it is.

So basic hardware/OS troubleshooting, light network troubleshooting/setup, and some printer action.

For that, I recommend you study for your Comptia A+ and Network+ certification. For this, Professor Messer's videos are great, along with the A+ all in one book from Michael Meyers. Then just Exam Cram for the Network+. These are to give you some basic entry level knowledge on how shit works. You really learn through experience though.

How old are you? I would ask at your school if their are intern positions for IT helpdesk or whatever. That should be enough to get a general foundation under you.
