    I'm learning about AC but so far it has been a confusing topic to grasp.
    I checked out several website but still not happy with my understanding of the subject. I would like to find some good guide to understanding AC.
    Website,videos and books will be all great.
    Thanks.

    I agree with absf's advice, this ebook is great, especially for beginners.

    Also here on this site are the Fiegenbaum videos:
    http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/videos/index.html
    Please scroll down to the "Alternating Current" heading.

    Another good explanation:
    http://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/accircuits/AC-waveform.html

    If you insist on spending money for a book, there is "Introductory Circuit Analysis" by Boylestad. To get a rough idea of the AC related topics that are covered in the book, you could take a look at ET242 Circuits Analysis II by Sunghoon Jang. It was prepared using the instructor material from the book (with permission by the publisher):
    http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/academics/deptsites/eetech/tutoring/eet1222_et242_circuitanalysis2.pdf

    And finally, if you have checked several different sources and you have still trouble understanding, it might be better to ask specific questions here on this forum than to look for yet another book. Sometimes there is just some "mental block" or misconception that can best be removed by another person.
