Good books on Electrodynamic

As far as I know, Griffiths is considered the standard for undergraduates.

For a good upper undergraduate introduction I suggest:

"Introduction to Electrodynamics" by David J. Griffiths

http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-E...8057347&sr=1-1

EDIT: Beat me to it, nick.

Here are some video lectures of an electrodynamics class. (This is from an electrical engineering perspective, not physics, but it should help.

I second this text, Wangsness is in my opinion an order of magnitude better than Griffiths will ever be. I have taught out of both and would not teach out of anything else.
