I am studying for my junior level EM final that is a few weeks from now, we are using Griffiths' Introduction to electrodynamics. To prep for the test I am already planning on working through all of our homework problems, and examples in relevant sections, as well as a few problems we didn't do for our homework. I want to work as many problems as possible so I am looking at possibly getting the Schaum's outline for EM for as a source of problems that isn't from Griffiths' book.
Does anyone have experience with Schaum's outlines on this subject? How does the difficulty of problems in Schaum's compare to those found in Griffiths? If you have alternative sources that you would recommend I am open to anything that helps me study.

See if you can find
Nayfeh and Brussel, Electricity and Magnetism at the library (may be too late to order a used copy). The book is chock full of solved problems. It uses SI units.

Schaum's outline of Electromagnetism
I use Schaum's electromagnetism book for my engineering electromagnetics courses, but honestly the problems are quite easy compared to griffiths, you might do better by looking for some other textbook.

griffiths solutions manaul is online if you use some clever google searches.

http://physicsebooks.info/electromag...tonkbrussel/ First, the book is over 600 pages long, not 192, and it has hundreds of worked examples (why would I have mentioned it otherwise?) It was my undergrad text, and I hung on to it through graduate school and until recently when I lost it in a move. If you can't find it in the library, and you don't have scruples about such things, there's a djvu (essentially an electronic photocopy) floating around.

By the way, I think it's enormously helpful before a final to rework the problems in the previous homework and exams.
