Internet find Electronics Training from the Navy

United States Navy Electricity & Electronics Training Series - NEETS\* In the introduction, the texts are defined as a "self-study course". Seems to be a really good way to teach yourself about electronics if you were so inclined. Another example of how, if you can just filter out the noise, it's possible to get a base education in just about anything if you have access to a web browser. From the intro: < The Navy Electricity and Electronics Training Series (NEETS) was < developed for use by personnel in many electrical- and < electronic-related Navy ratings. Written by, and with the advice < of, senior technicians in these ratings, this series provides < beginners with fundamental electrical and electronic concepts < through self-study. The presentation of this series is not oriented < to any specific rating structure, but is divided into modules < containing related information organized into traditional paths of < instruction. The series is designed to give small amounts of < information that can be easily digested before advancing further < into the more complex material. For a student just becoming < acquainted with electricity or electronics, it is highly < recommended that the modules be studied in their suggested < sequence. While there is a listing of NEETS by module title, the < following brief descriptions give a quick overview of how the < individual modules flow together.

The first module - Introduction to Matter, Energy, and Direct Current is 283 pages. Guessing it's pretty impressive learning material.
