Homework Help: Textbooks for Physics

  1. Feb 27, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi, I am looking for a problems and solutions textbook for the physics of electricity and magnetism. I currently am using a textbook that has problems but no solutions at all. It is miserable for learning physics.

    I am looking for something that can provide good college level problems in electricity and magnetism but also have good in-detail solutions. Any form is acceptable (internet, textbook,etc.) but having detailed solutions is key!

    Griffiths' Introduction to Electrodynamics is an okay intro book, it's got plenty of problems in it
    I'd give that one a go

    How come that book doesn't cover circuits?

    most EM books don't cover circuits
    they usually cover coulomb fields and work up to maxwells equations

    Hi mrshappy0! Have a try for Schaum's 3000 Problems in Physics.
    You can buy students manuals of your textbooks if need solutions- but saying the truth it wont help you to learn physics at all!
    Have a nice day!

    I got that book too. But only problems and solution.
    Should add Young and Freedman-University Physics.
