'... good examples and problems are given so the student can practice the skills being taught.' IEEE Microwave Magazine
'... its virtue ... is to address, through judicious selection of material and masterful repetition of important facts, the needs of a student who finds lectures and textbooks hard to understand, too complex, and besides the point of doing the assigned problems. ... Students who are struggling with the material will love the Guide. The Guide is a well-written, concise, honest tool that delivers just what it promises.' American Journal of Physics
Maxwell's equations are four of the most influential equations in science. In this book, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, making it a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism and electromagnetics. Audio podcasts and solutions to the problems are available at www.cambridge.org/9780521701471.See all Product Description

Anyway, I wont believe that, someone who understands calculus, wont understand maxwell's equations even after reading this very thin book with very less effort. The reader does not even need to be a master of calculus. If a partial derivative and Integral operator makes sense to the reader, he/she will find this book accessible.
In the last chapter, (chapter 5), the author derived the Electromagnetic wave equations from maxwell's equation. That part was the most exciting part for me as I was simply waiting for learning that. If the reader knows that, a Wave Equation can be expressed in second order partial derivative form, then, this chapter will makes sense. This book did not explain where and how we got the Wave equation using second order partial derivative. I think, the author could explain that in a paragraph by writing few lines. As I was already familiar with wave equation, I did not have any problem understanding that part. Anyway, I find my every penny worth and I feel myself fortunate that I bought this book.

Great book. You can't get better explanations than this book provides.Published 12 months ago by Derek Hillard
I can only agree with the positive comments so far. This book should also be used as a reference on how to write technical books. Read morePublished 13 months ago by john grant
If you had a bad teacher for electromagnetics, here's the perfect guide for next courses.Published 16 months ago by Thomas
I highly recommend this book. Sometimes, we know them mathematically, but outside the real world. It is very nice to see them in action. I am happy with my purchasePublished 21 months ago by Mario Lemelin
