    The important equations you study in your basic E&m class, simply are maxwell's equations, such as Gauss's law.

    Hi nickl382. So, you're from Lake George, eh? We're practically neighbors!

    What you're looking for is an EM textbook. There is at least one good one online: Electromagnetic Field Theory Internet Textbook Project, by Bo Thide. There is also a solution manual for the exercises, as well as some sample exams with solutions.
