Introduction to Electrodynamics
Some people are somewhat put off by the gricfiths, conversational writing style, the way it forces you to work through problems rather than handing everything to you, and it’s somewhat non-standard notation. Very good explanations, probably the best example problems of any textbook I’ve had, and very thorough. This is a great introductory text to the study of electromagnetics.

This is a staple of any serious Physics library. Feb 2, If there is a issue it is between the publisher and the distributor not the end purchaser. I am sad that it is the only book used at some schools as the last few chapters especially relativity are not as good as earlier ones and it does not cover some topics like electrodynamics thoroughly. Gricfiths is no doubt that Griffiths is the best book on electrodynamics for freshmen or sophomores.
This book is a good one to start forming that habit. Griffiths is a great textbook writer. Return to Book Page. Equations and theorems are documented in such a way that they can be briffiths effortlessly. Often, it seems as though he gives just enough examples for you grifiths be able to do some of the problems without trying; others, with some difficulty; and some problems are quite difficult. Mar 17, 4. I don’t recommend it for self study unless you are extremely motivated AND have a professor or someone who’s worked through it already willing grfifiths bounce ideas around with you.

However it does grjffiths more practical problems from an Electrical Engineering perspective than does Griffiths. Jun 14, 5. I can’t speak for this book specifically it may be an anomaly but international versions of textbooks are exactly the same, except perhaps for the cover and ISBN number.
If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Do you already have an account? There’s just griffihhs much you need to have practiced.
This book presents the grifviths matter in a very informal way which is what Griffiths is successful on explaining the boring subject at times in an articulate way. Apr 20, Peyton rated it really liked it.
David Griffiths, I salute you sir. This book is the bible for an upper-level undergraduate physics course, or even for self-study of electricity and magnetism.

He treats the subject with just the right level of rigor, where you understand why the equations and principles are the way they are, but not at the point where you are swamped with burdensome grad school math. Some people prefer the book of Grifgiths, but I should say that this is peerless for undergrads majoring physics. That’s a shame, because it meant missing the heart of the textbook, even though the author tries to give geometrical and intuitive explanations too where at all possible.
The best part about this for me was the chapter on Vector Analysis which most book fails at since vector is core to understanding Electrodynamics and this book devotes an entire chapter for learning vectors. Mar 03, Gaurav rated it it was amazing. Jackson is a graduate text and may be a stress for undergrads.
Nonetheless, ggiffiths great book for all the Electrodynamics fans. For those who have used this book. I’m going to write a real review for this book since there’s surprisingly few of them here. My favorite is chapter 9. Aug 30, Roshan Shrestha rated it it was amazing.
Refresh and try again.
If you don’t heed my warning, good luck, because Chapter 3 is going to wreck your life forever you’ll literally die. Jun 14, 7. This is the kind of textbook that a self-motivated learner read: Other than getting used to full vector rgiffiths in calculus, there is really no reason to teach from any other electrodynamics book at the undergraduate level. Having this book in my possession was a huge improvement.

grkffiths This book on the other hand is very clear. My undergraduate physics program had no better textbook than this one, and I recomm If you want to a good mathematical approach to learning Electricity and Magnetism, Griffiths is your man.
Introduction to Electrodynamics by David J. Griffiths
This is a pretty good book at its level. He writes to the student, saying how “you” need to do this, and sometimes how “I” prefer to do that. This is a book that always provides intuition behind everything.
