I'm an engineering first year and I am looking for the best books relevant to my subject. My course is split up into five components: Maths, Electrical, Electronical, Materials, and Energy. By best books I mean that I am looking for books that explain most of what I need to know in a clear and simplified/easy to understand (as much as it can be) way. Please help me !

Your an undergraduate engineer?

It's not a focused discipline like mechanical, electrical, systems engineer?

Also not sure what the difference between electrical and "electronical" are.

What kind of math are you looking for?

Are you doing all those subjects in one semester or over your entire degree?

Please be more specific and I will be sure to help out further.

For the first two years its general engineering with specialisation in my 3rd and 4th years. I think in most contexts electronical and electrical are used synonymously. With regards to the maths I have K.A.Stroud's books, the main topic i'm looking to improve upon is convergence/absolute convergence/divergence of series..

The topics my exam next term will be on will be:
Calculus 1, Statics, Circuit Analysis 1/2, Vectors and Matrices, Electricity and Magnetism, Materials and Solid Mechanics, Complex Algebra and Fourier Series, Bending and Torsion, and Ordinary Differential Equations.

So any books which you'd recommend that explain these topics in as much a simplified (as much as possible) yet complete way would help me out alot.

My recommendation: visit this wonderful site.Lots of free books to to download. All of them grouped into "packages" of specific subjects (set theory, logic, calculus, etc...). See the part: "calculus for engineers".
