can anyone tell me whether jackson's or landau and lif****z's E&M book is better for self study (basically which is better for learning the theory and doing the problems also) assuming all prerequisite knowledge and material has been met (such as griffiths E&M text).

In my opinion, learning Griffiths's E&M text really well would establish a really good foundation for most undergraduate- and graduate-level electrodynamics. For topics that aren't covered by Griffiths, I guess I would recommend Jackson (who writes better than most people give him credit for) but be warned--the problems in Jackson are notoriously impossible. :yuck:
