I am thinking to jump to some other book to go in detail in say electrostatics to refresh my boring routine. So I have picked up introduction to electrodynamics in which 2nd chapter is electrostatics. But I face problem with math. I don't know anything about vector analysis except vector algebra. How should I now prepare myself mathematically to understand the electrostatics part of griffiths.

How about getting a mathematical methods for physics and engineering by riley, Hobson, Bence where I can learn stuff like divergence, curl, del operator, gradient, line, surface, volume integral used in this chapter.

Vector analysis chapter is given in this griffiths book but not in much detail. I also have vector analysis by schaum's.
