Is there a specific order I should follow for the educational tools(Textbooks, Video Tutorials & Video Lectures)?
Do the video tutorials/ lectures line up with the textbooks?
Any help getting started and what path I should use would be much appreciated!

Thank you for this information.

However, I am not looking to purchase any other material, I want to just use the Textbooks (Vol. I - Vol. VI), video lectures & video tutorials that are provided on this website.

If you know of a good order to study these(do specific video lectures go with specific Vol.'s), that would be very helpful.

Welcome to AAC!

I don't see any particular reason to skip the order as it is written.
More importantly, if you have any questions or need some further clarification that's what we are here for.

Do the videos correlate directly to chapters in each volume?

For example, does the video(Electrical Quantities B) correlate to a specific chapter?

I do not want to read all of the Volumes and then go to the videos. I want to so them simultaneously.
