I apologise if this has been answered before.

I am about half way through the mechanics chapters in the classic University Physics

I am wondering when I get to the chapters on electromagnetism is it worth reading them if I’m going to be reading Griffiths anyway?

Would it be best just to get stuck in with Griffiths as I believe it delves much deeper into the subject (600+ pages) compared to a couple hundred pages if that in University Physics.

Also would one be able to start classical mechanics if they have completed Newtonian mechanics, differential equations, calculus 3 and some linear algebra?
