The best undergraduate EM book,
This review is from: Introduction to Electrodynamics (3rd Edition) (Hardcover)
There is a reason most junior/senior level introductory E&M class uses this book. It is simply the best one for that level of introduction. It does not presume any knowledge of vector calculus. In fact, it gives a very detailed introduction to the various vector analysis needed in the various parts of E&M. By the end of it, you will learn E&M, the math behind it, and have a great intuition on gradients, divergence and curl. Some may say it's too elementary. The reality is that most students would need to walk before they run, and freshman intro physics classes really don't prepare them for the more advanced studies such as Jacobson.
