# BASIC ELECTRICITY Vol 1 - 5 Rider Publication

**5.00 USD**

This is an introductory course entitled BASIC ELECTRICITY Volumes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 by Van Valkenburgh, Nooger & Neville, Inc. (1954). This is a 5-volume set on, as the title implies, basic electricity. The best introduction to basic electricity principles Ive seen. Originally developed for the Navy, the courses present one fundamental topic at a time, taken up in the order of need, rendered absolutely understandable, and hammered home by the use of clear, cartoon-type illustrations. The illustrations are the most effective ever presented. Every page has at least one such illustration every page covers one complete idea! An imaginary instructor stands figuratively at the readers elbow, doing demonstrations that make it easier to understand each subject presented in the course.
