Elements of Electromagnetics book. Dr. Sadiku is a professor of Electrical Engineering at Prairie View A&M University (Prairie View, Texas), and Fellow of IEEE.

The basic objective of this highly successful text--to present the concepts of electromagnetics in a style that is clear and interesting to read--is more fully-realized in this Second Edition than ever before. Thoroughly updated and revised, this two-semester approach to fundamental concepts and applications in electromagnetics begins with vector analysis--which is then applied throughout the text. A balanced presentation of time-varying fields and static fields prepares students for employment in today's industrial and manufacturing sectors. Mathematical theorems are treated separately from physical concepts. Students, therefore, do not need to review any more mathematics than their level of proficiency requires. Sadiku is well-known for his excellent pedagogy, and this edition refines his approach even further. Student-oriented pedagogy comprises: chapter introductions showing how the forthcoming material relates to the previous chapter, summaries, boxed formulas, and multiple choice review questions with answers allowing students to gage their comprehension. Many new problems have been added throughout the text.

This is a great book but it has flaws like any book does. First of all sometimes there are mathematical errors inside and probably one of the worst downsides of this book is that it doesn't go in-depth that much. Now for someone taking Electromagnetic Fields, this is a book that will help you learn the basics and help you understand the topic in general but if you want in depth solutions and advanced techniques of solving problems, then this is not the book for you. This book is more of a supplemental book that goes along with another textbook rather than a stand alone all in one primary textbook.
I purchased this book as an additional reference for an electromagnetics course I am taking for a master's program. My background is chemical engineering so the only previous exposure I have had to electromagnetics was in sophomore physics. The book recommended for the course was Cheng's Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics. I have also checked out Electromagnetics for Engineers by Ulaby. So can compare them all. Sadiku's book has the most thorough review of vectors, coordinate transformation and vector calculus. For a guy like me who finished undergraduate studies 15 years ago, this was very attractive. Instead buying another math book to review this material, it was all contained in the same book. The other EM books I compared also had the math review, but Sadiku's is the most complete. Cheng's is much too terse. If you are going straight into graduate school, this thorough treatment would likely be a waste of space for you. If you are the typical upper division undergraduate, the math review will likley be useful. For electrostatics and magnetostatics, I have found Sadiku to be the most thorough. He develops all of the equations carefully, and his treatment of boundary value problems was much more complete than the other three texts. For Maxwell's equations and plane waves, I liked Ulaby a little better. Sadiku puts everything into one chapter - the wave equation, polarization, propagation in lossy media, normal and oblique transmission and reflection. I preferred breaking this into some pieces to digest carefully. The sections on new applications of EM principles are welcome additions to the text and help to connect the material to new technology that is relevant.

One area where Sadiku shines is in the example problems. For one, there are lots of worked examples - more than Cheng or Ulaby. He does not assume the reader can follow great leaps, but instead he works through the mathematic operations step by step. This has been useful for me. It has helped me to see how to think through the problems and understand what the phyiscal phenonema are. It also takes the fear of the math out of the picture. Once I could see how the problems are worked, I realized I actually knew the math well enough. Cheng on the other provides very few examples and skips enough steps so as to make the examples intimidating instead of illuminating. Ulaby has lots of examples (more than Cheng), but is also a little terse in the explantions.

Ulaby is the best in the summary of equations and concepts in reference tables. He compiles all of the most useful equations into tables that are easy to find and use. For example in the section on lossy media, there are about 20 equations summarized in table. The most general case is covered, but so are the three most common simplications of the general case - lossless dielectric, low-loss dielectric and good conductor. In the other texts, you have to flip through the chapter on lossy media - back and forth - to dig up the equations needed. Ulaby also has a modern lay out that is very appealing. It just makes the text less intimidating.

Cheng is a very compact and economical in use of space - but too terse for me. I might recommend it to those who already know the subject and need a reference to quickly review key ideas. He skimps on diagrams and skips too many steps in solving problems.

Sadiku is also up to date in format and color. He uses diagrams where needed, and there are some clever tables show analogies between electric and magnetic phenomena.Overall, Sadiku is a solid reference. I have seen other reviewers comment that the 3rd edition was chocked full of editorial errors. I have not seen any issues with the 4th edition. However, I am not reading this as carefully as the Ulaby and Cheng books (as required by my class), so I may have missed some issues.
This classic textbook is well-written and easy to understand. The love the last chapter of the book when it discusses the numerical methods in Electrostatics problems. Comparably, the price the reasonable and fair. I strongly recommend this book. I bought a used copy from Amazon and a particular seller and I am fully happy with it as it was really worth of the paid money.
Why didn't any professors recommend this book when I was a student? Absolutely the best book in the field.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! A new surprise around every corner! Absolutely shocking! I could read a chapter in this book, and honestly have *no idea* what the next one would be about. An absolutely riveting plot, and the book also manages to address points that have consequences in the real world, without feeling like it is bogging down the story. As mentioned above, there are many complex characters and expressions, but the author uses descriptive text to make them understandable. I swear, once you pick up this book, it will be hard to put down! It's like a force of nature!
Great product, good communication.
It's really good. It's one edition previous at the latest edition but work very well for study for my class of Electromagnetic
A Little bit of history about me:
I barely passed my course in Electromagnetism before 12 years. This course was a complete night-mare for me. Now I really wish I had access to this book before 12 years, I might have as well made a career in RF; that is how much this book has made the subject accessible and more importantly lovable.

About the book:
This book has a very intuitive and logical structure to it. In the first two pages, he introduces Maxwell's equations and sheerly states that the subject of EM revolves around this. He does not visit it for the next 8 chapters. The first three chapter has a beautiful coverage of the Vector algebra foundation required to understand the rest of the text.

The next three chapter explains Electrostatics, followed by 2 chapters of Magnetostatics. The discussion then continues what happens Electric and magnetic forces are not static anymore and becomes dynamic. The way the author builds the topic is like a well-written movie plot. This must be one of the best books ever on electromagetism, if not the best.

Full credits to the author for the clarity of thought and the clarity with which he communicates that to the reader.

By the way, I have the fourth edition of the book and I do not know about the errors in the solutions. I assume that would have been taken care of, after receiving so much flak from the readers. If i find any errors in solutions later, I promise to revisit the review.

Buy this book, you will not regret.
