Summary: This is a textbook in electromagnetism for the advanced undergraduate in Physics. The text is appropriate in the sophomore-to-senior level electromagnetism course that usually follows modern physics and precedes a mechanics sequence. The writing style of Classical Electromagnetism is friendly and informal, and the text has undergone two years of classroom testing with very positive response. In addition, the text was extensively reviewed with numerous accolades.Edition/Copyright: 99

- Engaging, friendly writing style
- The early discussion of Maxwell's equations (right after chapters on Coulomb's law), Ampere's law, and Faraday's law is unique to this text. This organization avoids the teaching of incomplete versions of important equations and concepts that would otherwise have to be revised later in the course.
- Numerous in-text examples and end-of-chapter problems involving practical numerical values.
- Computerized examples in the contemporary language of choice (C++) can be found in Appendix C. A floppy disk with source and executable files comes with every copy of the text.
- Instructor's Manual provides complete solutions to all end-of-chapter problems.
- Adopters will be able to download selected pieces of line art from the text.
