Here is the "Electricity - Basic Navy Training Courses"
(NAVPERS 10622) in its entirety. It should provide one of the Internet's
best resources for people seeking a basic electricity course - complete with examples

Note: A value written as 1-1/4 should be
interpreted as "one and a quarter" (1.25), not "one minus a quarter" (0.75). The
dash is akin to a hyphen connecting the whole number to the fraction.
