I recently completed an grad E&M course using this book.
Albert Shadowitz's book "The Electromagnetic Field" has excellent, detailed and pedagogical coverage of most topics found in Jackson's book, and is also very cheap!
Please do not get excited that doing hard Jackson problems means that you know E&M, it just means you can do computation (this is not even math).
For all intents and purposes, it's the canon of classical electromagnetic theory. A staple in any physics grad student's library. Read morePublished 2 months ago by jfizzix
Awful as a text. I pity the poor physics students for whom this is a required text. If no one has told you yet, you can't do the problems from what is in the text. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Cerritos reader
This book has some holes in presentation of material. Derivations are not clear. Jackson jumps steps while arriving to conclusions which is very irritating (sometimes it can make... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Shashwat Tanay
One of the most popular books for graduate level Electrodynamics and Magnetism class.
It is very difficult to follow at times, but a very thorough book. Read more
This is classical book I partly used being a student of the physical department (1966-1971). This book (I edition) was strongly recommended by our professor as one of the best. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Victor Romanenko
If you are taking graduate level EM, it seems this is the book to get and is referenced just about everywhere. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Sara
