Text is quite readable and appropriate for a first-year graduate text in physics. A "bible" I return to again and again.
Thinking back, I recall struggling over some sections for which I was not adequately prepared, including time-dependent EM fields. That aside, this was the text for my most favorite class in grad school.
If you are a fan of transformational solutions to differential equations then this is the text for you. Here is where I really learned about Fourier and other special function transformations as well as solving diffeq problems in special coordinate systems. I did very well in quantum mechanics thanks to this text.
I fear that students today may not have the same preparation that was common 30 years ago. Back then, expectations were different. In particular, this text is hardly aware of computational problem solving. It is focused on analytics.
Review: Classical ElectrodynamicsUser Review - Onyx Opium - Goodreads
It's probably a good book - if you use it as a reference - but as a teaching aid it blows chunks. The most hated physics graduate textbook yet paradoxically one of the most important :( As for myself ... Read full review
