This fall I'm going to the university of electrical engineering and I am looking for some good physics and math books concerning the following topics:
Physics
-Classical Mechanics ( level above Calculus 2)
- Electricity and Magnetism ( level above calculus 2)
-Electrical cirtcuits (specially oriented)
Math
-Calculus 3
-Differential equations
Best ones you can think of, like Purcell or Grifiths for EM which do you recommend?
Something you might add?
