Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book for my college classes. It has a general information about AC/DC motors covering various winding types and construction, insulation, torque ratings, etc. etc. However it is easy to read and the diagrams and pictures are helpful. It also covers some components such as transformers. An "ok" reference book for someone just starting their electrical classes or someone who's simply interested in learning more.

I keep it around as a reference manual or a way to refresh my memory on things while I'm in the more advanced classes now!

Tedious read. Difficult to understand. Horrible textbook written for people that should already know what's going on, not for learning. Nothing is simplified.
