    Hello , I am Physics undergrad on my 1 st year. I have worked out most of the chapters from Riley Benson Hobsons Mathematical Methods for Physics and Enginnering. Now i want to Do Arfkans book. Now the thing i want to know is that is it absolutely necessary to finish it in undergrad level ?

    No undergrad finishes books like these. In a math methods course, you might make it through a quarter or third of the book. You most likely have already covered another quarter in your prereq courses like calculus or linear algebra or differential equations.
