It is incomprehensible to me how anyone can rate this book favorably. Using this as my course textbook has been a hinderance to my course in the field, not an aid, which is exasperating. I do not recall when I last had a textbook that was such a frustration as this.
This book is, as a whole, poorly suited for students taking whole courses. It should solely be used in a piece-wise manner or a handbook for those already familiar with the field. If you, as a teacher, require your students to obtain this brick for your course, then you are as an educator morally obliged to provide a thorough study guide for it on the side, replete with the necessary formulae and brief context of concepts required for coursework and grading, which leads me to the main criticism:
The core formulaic material for the breath of the subject matter is spread around the book in a confusing manner, requiring you to have a precise recollection (or lots of index panes!) of where they are to be found for when solving problems and doing coursework. When you do more complex problems, you constantly need to leaf back and forth for reference between necessary parts, for each individual part of a problem. Writing your own comprehensive inventory of formulae is only of some help, since the equations obviously don't stand on their own.
The illustrations and diagrams are often confusing, especially those that add a depth dimension whereas it mostly causes confusion.Read more ›
Now that I am a Systems (RF) Engineer, I have not found this book all that useful as a reference, simply because I have to go through tons of math just to get the answer I need. It is definitely not a "quick reference" book for the practicing engineer, but rather a in depth mathematical look into E&M theory.

This is a good book for someone who already has taken some physics and electronics course. The examples are great and explained well. Still it is a complicated subject matter.Published on April 29, 2011 by Marissa
