    I've been interested in learning about electrical engineering for some
    time now.

    I know a little bit about the basics from physics, but a refresher
    would not be unwelcome.

    I was wondering if anyone would reccomend me a basic EE text book that
    can be used without supplementary lectures.

  2. Cambridge University Press publishes several.

    "The Art of Electronics" by Horowitz and Hill is THE BOOK. It may be too
    advanced for you; take a look. Be sure to get the student guide by Hayes
    and Horowitz that goes along with it.

    If that's too advanced, look at "Hands-On Electronics" (I forget the
    author's name).

    I assume you're mainly wanting to learn how to design things. If you revel
    in differential equations, matrices, and idealized components that don't
    actually exist, then an entirely different kind of textbook is in order, and
    there are entirely too many of them! :)
