Hey all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm currently self-studying some basic electricity and magnetism for my 2nd semester of EE next year which has a "Fundamentals of Electricity" course. Now I haven't done any electricity-related stuff since my senior year of HS and I am frankly a little bit weaker than I would like to be in this area.

I'm reading through some college physics book I found in someone's trash but it doesn't seem all that great to me. The concepts are skimmed over and not descriptive or in-depth; leading to a poor theoretical background which I know I am going to need. So I was wondering if someone had any books in mind? Specifically, the topics I'm looking into in my book are: electrostatics, DC/AC circuits and electromagnetism -- since this is all that this book offers in this area. I'd like to get some firm footing in electricity in general before I move onto circuits though (for which "The Art of Electronics" by H&H is supposedly great, but I'm not sure how much non-circuit stuff they cover).

The course description for my 2nd semester course looks like this: electricity/magnetism review, circuit analysis, resistive circuits, nodal and mesh analysis, network theorems. Natural & forced response of RL & RC circuits. Sinusoidal steady-state analysis, frequency response and power in AC circuits. Op-amp circuits.

Does anyone have any suggestions on books I should look into if I want to be ready for this course (a non-calculus treatment is preferred BTW)?

Thanks!
