The first reference looks best for my purposes -- but maybe more practical
than I was hoping for. (I ordered it online, and shipped to my NYC
I'm really wanting to find a book that starts from the beginning:
1. What is a conductor, an insulator?
2. What is a circuit, DC, AC
3. What does a battery do?
4. What is a electromagnet? How is a magnet used to generate AC?
5. Why does a capacitor store a charge?
6. Why transformers? What do they do? Concepts of current, voltage,
7. ETC. . .
Maybe Tony Foster's idea of using the XO and turtle art is where I'll have
to go in the end.
At least I see real benefit in hands on experimentation.
