Hi. :)
I'm looking for exam questions or exercises on Electricity & Magnetism (with solution if possible). The level should be *roughly* equivalent to the exercises in Purcell, Electricity & Magnetism, Berkeley Physics Course (usually 2nd year at university) in content.
I've googled already and found a few exams on various websites (mitocw,etc.).
I've also checked some books (Griffith - however no solutions :(, Tipler, schaum...however I'm not 100% happy what these books offer me....).

So my question is: Does anyone know a good place where I can get some past papers
on E&M - a book, website or anything else? (Maybe one can email them to me)

Thanks in advance for the responses.

Hi guys,

I'm a grad student working out of J.D. Jackson's "Classical Electrodynamics" 3rd ed.

I've been systematically working through the book, trying to wade through the "in-between steps" in the chapters. After some digging, I've found a few online resources where professors have posted copies of their lecture notes (which are very helpful when things get especially frustrating.)

I'm wondering if anyone has any recomendations for similar (and naturally, reliable) online resources which follow Jackson's text?

Note: I'm not looking for solutions to the problems, just the in-between steps in the chapter text.

Thanks! :)

I stumbled across this book in the library and was intrigued by fact that it seems oriented towards engineers (it goes through a fair bit of material on RF/Microwave circuits and antennas for example), but it includes a few chapters on special/general relativity and quantum electrodynamics. Topic-wise, it sounds like it might be a really interesting read, but my math skills aren't strong enough to really evaluate it at this point. I couldn't find any reviews online, so I'm curious, does anyone know anything about this book?
