So my first question is, aside from Schaum's are there any other recommended texts/guides/books for starting E&M (middle sections of Halliday and Resnick) physics? I'm also at a slight disadvantage since I have little to no conceptual experience with these two subjects, so maybe a recommended book for that as well?

I was doing a little research, and saw that I will encounter vector calculus. I just finished Calc II (earned a solid A as well) which had no vector calculus at all. I realize that this puts me at a disadvantage compared to other students who have completed Calc III, but has anybody found it completely overwhelming to take both at the same time? I expect the math to be rigorous and understand if you don't follow the math, it makes the physics that much (even more) difficult.

Sorry for the long text, but as you can tell I'm nervous (even more this time) about this semester coming up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
