Electricity - Basic Navy Training Courses
Here is the "Electrician's Mate 3 - Navy Training Courses" (NAVPERS 10548)
in its entirety (or will be eventually). It should provide one of the Internet's best
resources for people seeking a basic electricity course - complete with examples worked

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
