I can't really fault the Open University for their physical science textbooks. The ones I've read are clear, well presented, and focused on developing your understanding rather than on formal mathematical proofs. The mathematics is quite demanding but is always well explained.

A formal text on undergraduate electromagnetism which includes a good amount of mathematical revision (toolkit). The book starts with basic electromagnetism and develops Maxwell's equations through vector calculus, you do not need to be an expert in vector calculus to use this book but you should be familiar with multivariable calculus (particularly integration) and have a basic understanding of vector operations. This book has been written for students without access to lectures so presents material thoroughly, sometimes too much, the concepts tend to get lost in the mathematics at times so you need to exercise judgement on what to spend time on. The book contains a fair amount of chapter exercises to aid understanding but is written to accompany formal OU study where students have access to alternative exercises and additional material, the book therefore does not contain enough exercises to be entirely stand-alone. If you are looking for a complete text (including electromagnetism in media) you will need to buy the second book (Electromagnetic Fields) as this book is one of three books for use with course SMT359. One problem using theese texts with an accompanying problem set is a problem of notation, which differes somewhat depending on the text you use, you may therefore be better with a more complete text that contains many more problems and solutions.,
