Electromagnetic Field Theory: A Problem Solving Approach

  1. Aug 1, 2014 #1
    I stumbled on it while searching for electrodynamics textbooks for undergrads but this seems more advanced than Griffiths. Has anyone else used this book by Marcus Zahn? Is it a worthwhile read for an electrical engineer about to start sophomore year?

    Hi, this book looks brief but not really all that advanced to me. If you know your line and surface integrals very well, it shouldn't be too difficult.

    But it is brief. What you may want to do is to treat the examples like problems: cover the solution and try to solve the example. If you can't, try to unstick yourself by reading the preceding text. If you really get stuck, unveil the example one line at a time. Then also, if there is something you don't understand, look it up online. That way you won't be falling behind.

    But it looks like a very good book to me, surely it would be worth reading. So that it is recorded here for others, the book is freely available here.
