Purcell is better written but still only at a freshman level, so in that sense it isn't comparable to Griffiths.

Griffiths for electro as mentioned, but I prefered Townsends book "A modern approach to Quantum Mechanics" for quantum, although I've read both. Griffiths might be more approachable at first as it stays away from bra ket notation for awhile, but Townsend dives right in with them and I feel like it builds a stronger foundation then griffiths does in the long run.
