    Thank you for all the hard work that these tutorial represent and the help it provides to novices in the subject of electronics. I have one point to make. On the "Parallel Circuit" page the first parallel circuit diagram shows all current paths to be blue. This is confusing because it translates to the observer that all the current paths are equal in the flow of current. Unfortunately this is not always true. if the values of the resistors are not equal, the currents are not equal. I suggest to the author to add three additional colors, one for each branch of each parallel connected resistor.

    Good tutorials. The one confusing problem is the circular refrences in suggested reading. For e.g. this tutorial tells you read about capacitors first. But the capacitor tutorial tells you to read this one first. It would be helpful to have a true ordering of the tutorials .
