Overview

Electromagnetism sets a new standard in physics education. Throughout the book, the theory is illustrated with real-life applications in modern technology. It also includes detailed work examples and step-by-step explanations to help readers develop their problem-solving strategies and skills and consolidate their understanding. In addition to a meticulous development of thse traditional, analytical mathematical approaches, readers are also introduced to a range of techniques required for solving problems using computers. Electromagnetism provides an ideal preparation for readers who plan advanced studies in electrodynamics as well as those moving into industry or engineering .

    Verbiose, Poorly Organized

    This book is awful. The equations are embedded in the text, making it difficult to follow mathematical derivations. While applications are included, they break up the development of the theory, confusing the reader on a subject that is already difficult. This textbook may be readable for graduate students who have been exposed to the introductory and advanced undergraduate E&M courses previously, but for advanced undergraduate students it is needlessly cumbersome.
