    Anyone know how this book compares to Griffith, would I miss out on anything? Would I be adequately prepared for Jackson after going through every chapter of this book? (assuming I have the mathematics needed)

    I don't have my copy of P&S any more, so I can't compare them directly, but IIRC it's pretty similar to Griffiths in coverage. One of the other physics profs here used it for our intermediate E&M course for a while when he taught it.
