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).
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 1 month 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 5 months ago by Sara

I like this book...to some degree.
The explanations in the book are very good, but there are no examples to help you grasp the material. Read more
I do not know if there are physicists who never heard about this book.
Thank you JD Jackson for so many sleepless nights while in grad school trying to answer your questions... Read more
I only bought this book because I'm in graduate school and we have to have it. It's the standard for graduate E&M. That being said, if you don't have to use it, don't. It sucks. Read morePublished 16 months ago by A. Steck
