# Good books for learning AC current?

• Arup Biswas
In summary, the conversation revolves around a 2nd year Physics student who wants to learn about electricity from its absolute basics. They are seeking recommendations for books that cover the theory of electricity in detail and also include the required mathematics. Several options are suggested, such as Purcell, Griffiths, and Boilestad, with the suggestion that the student may find cheaper options in Kolkata's College Street or through older editions.
