Book Description

Jan. 22 2010 0195387759 978-0195387759 Fifth Edition
A good understanding of electromagnetics is vital to anyone working with electrical currents. Electromagnetics, electrostatics, and magnetostatics are the foundation for microwaves, biomedical imaging, and circuit design. Understanding this foundation well is the basis for a successful career in electromagnetics-related fields. Sadiku's Elements of Electromagnetics, fifth edition, is designed for the introductory course in electromagnetics for electrical and computer engineering undergraduates. Taking a vector-first approach, Sadiku explains electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields and waves, as well as applications like transmission lines, waveguides, and antennas. It provides a balanced presentation of time-varying fields and static fields, preparing students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors.

Product Description


"In switching to Sadiku's book, the improvement on understanding how vectors work is substantial, approximately a 30-35% increase in scores. If you're forced into a one-semester 3-hour course, you're not going to get a better book than this."--Dennis McCaughey, George Mason University

"The new textbook is an excellent book. It provides clear presentations to the mathematical formulas, physics insight, and practical applications."--Fan Yang, The University of Mississippi

"It has a more refreshing approach to connecting theory to practical examples."--Kasra Daneshvar, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

"Sadiku's book seems more 'reader friendly' in terms of the layouts and printing qualities. . . . This book is doing a very good job on problems/solutions. The problems are stated clearly and there are some new questions available."--Yan Zhang, University of Oklahoma

"The scope as well as the number of HW problems is good. It shows balance bet --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars I read every page! Feb. 7 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was always told this topic was one of the most difficult to follow. This book makes it super easy to understand. Examples are clear, and text is very detailed and well explained. Two thumbs up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first read for an electromagnetic Oct. 26 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So far it's a pretty good read with a fair amount of examples to help the user understand the concepts mathematically even if they can't visualize it. That being said, there are numerous instances where the author seeks to verify topics using analogies that I think are fairly easy to comprehend. The book came in very good condition, packaging kept it safe on it's trip. I would buy from this vendor again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Understanding EM Jan. 6 2010
By JohnD - Published on Amazon.com
I have the second edition of Elements of Electromagnetics. This is the book I go to if I really want to understand an EM topic. I find that for understanding the derivations of the laws and formulas this book is the best that I have opened. I am reading Feynman's lectures on EM and often go to this book when I can't follow Feynman. I haven't found many errors in the text itself, but reading others comments it seems the answers to the problems are not always correct. Still, for a good understanding it would be hard to top Sadiku.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent EM reference book Aug. 22 2011
By Calc - Published on Amazon.com
I was looking for a very good EM reference book. I found this, and it's amazing. Mathematically rigorous, easy to understand, and very well written, this book covers EM from a to z, including transmission lines and antennas. The examples are great, too, because you can work them without the the author giving too much away in the answers but just enough. This is an excellent book for reference, since the chapters nearly stand alone. So, one can read one chapter about electrostatics or skip ahead to another about Faraday's law without getting lost in a tome-like textbook where the author tries too hard to blend together the chapters for fluidity and cohesion, like a novel when it's supposed to be a textbook. This book doesn't do that, and I love it for that. However, the organization of the material is very well thought-out and makes good sense. Get this book if you're struggling in an EM class or you want an excellent reference book to page through. I highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy the 3rd Edition Nov. 3 2010
By Action Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
This book (3rd edition) is from hell. The TA who solved/wrote the problems in this book was clearly on crack. Not even the solutions manual can be trusted to have the right answer. This is one of the few books I've found where you would be better off without solutions, since so many of those given are completely and utterly wrong.
It is interesting to note that you sometimes have to look at the solutions manual to understand what the hell the problem is actually supposed to say.
This book teaches electromagnetics and baldness. The latter comes from tearing out ones hair looking for the problem in ones work that doesn't actually exist, but does exist in the solutions you are comparing your work to.
Two stars because the book functions nicely as a club and projectile.

1.0 out of 5 stars What book did I order? Feb. 3 2011
By student - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My copy of this book has a chapter from an economics textbook on 'present worth techniques' replacing a chapter on electric fields in materials that I need to read for class. This book is presently worthless to me. Too bad the return policy expired the day before we got to those pages in class.

This book is a great way to learn intermediate electricity and magnetism especially if you are studying from a experimental physics or engineering perspective.
