Good tutorial on magnetism?

  1. Apr 15, 2012 #1
    Hi guys,

    I have been self-studying physics since sometime Its been going great,but I was reading yesterday on magnetism their some stuff that my book doesn't cover and assume you already know how to do it.
    For example If we place a compass between two mangetic field or three or more we need to find the net force on the compass those questions I don't understand I do right hand rule on each of the wire in order to determine force direction and then finding net force,but somehow I end up getting it wrong,so I think I don't understand magnetism fully.

    Would anyone recommend a good tutorial that covers magnetism and does it justice ?
