Great for the beginner or experiencedAug 18, 2001
By Dennis Cody
I have been an Avionics Tech. for 30 years and bought this book for my son-in-law. I have had a copy and used it for years to brush up on sometimes forgoten electrical principals. This book is so good that the aircraft technical schools issue it to aviation mechanics for the AC and DC basics. If you want to understand electricity, motors, generators, AC/DC theory...This book is for you!!!!!

From an Enlisted Sailor who knowsJun 02, 2000
By Tim Fredericksen Jr
This book is a fantastic reference guide to those interested in the field of Electricity. I found it extremely useful, both as a guideline for choosing my rating in the Navy's Nuclear Power Program, and as a basic reference guide in application. It is well thought out, and, laid out in a logical straight forward matter. This book, coupled with some basic knowledge of electricity, will give you a broad theoretical background in this fundamental subject.

Great Book!Oct 18, 2009
By Carl Marks
I went through the Naval Nuclear Power School as an Electricians Mate, and this book is an amazing additional supplement to the classes.
It's not very good if you're trying to learn on your own, but is a great tool with great examples if you're actually in some kind of school to learn about electricity.
I still use this book as a reference. I highly recommend it.

Get the other Electronics books too !Jan 29, 2011
I'm an ex submariner and a former 1st class Electronics technician. I went through both ET "A" and ET "B" school at the Naval training center at the Great Lakes base in Illinois. If you want to study and learn Electronics there are 3 books you need...this one Basic electricity ( you need to master this before you study the next 2 books which are "Basic electronics" ( this is virtually the identical material used in the Navy's 38 week ET "A" School and then the "Advanced electronics "book ( this one is the ET "B" school curriculum) I believe all 3 are available here at Amazon. The Navy did an incredibly good job with this material as it's core of their electronics schools which by the way, were taught by civilian electrical engineers from the staff of the university of Chicago's electrical engineering dept.
If you can master the material in these books you could easily stand toe to toe with any Electronics engineering college graduate anywhere
