5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful introduction for anybody
As a computer scientist who found himself doing EM simulation, I was in need of a good, easy to read, introductory text on Electromagnetics. After tring to read texts by numerous other authors, I settled on Kraus. It's very well writen and anyone who's interested in EM should be able to understand it (with a little fundimental calculus background). It's not too...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful introduction for anybody, 25 Mar 1999
By A Customer
As a computer scientist who found himself doing EM simulation, I was in need of a good, easy to read, introductory text on Electromagnetics. After tring to read texts by numerous other authors, I settled on Kraus. It's very well writen and anyone who's interested in EM should be able to understand it (with a little fundimental calculus background). It's not too "mathy" and doesn't presupose a background in Electral Engineering: failings I've seen in other books. The style is very light while remaining technical: very much like Feynman's books. If you want to learn basic EM, this is the book to do it with. Highly recommended.

This title does a good job of covering the required material in a concise and easily absorbed format. Be warned however, if you are expecting to enhance your studies through the book's accompanying website you will be disappointed as the website has been discontinued.

I have had no response from the publisher in 3 weeks regarding obtaining this supplementary material by alternative means and so would advise others not to purchase this title on the strength of this advertised feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and accessible text on Electromagnetics, 14 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electromagnetics (Int'l Ed) (McGraw-Hill Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering) (Paperback)
I have currently read chapter 1 and 5 and parts of chapter 2, 3 and 4 and I must say that it does an excellent job. It should be noted, that the web-site is no longer available, but the files can be found elsewhere on the web. Other remarks is that the end results to examples contains errors on more than one occasion, i.e. a factor of 10 wrong in either direction if you plug in the numbers from the example on your calculator, but the procedure of the examples is correct. Also the answers to some problems appear to be incorrect, at least I've experienced on some occasions, that calculating the answer in more than one way, still didn't produce the expected answer. So, the perfect thing for this book, would be a 6th edition with adequate proof-reading and making the files officially available again and perhaps introduce a student's manual. Albeit the above mentioned, I still feel that it is worth 5 stars, since it handles a topic, which is inherently difficult, in a very good way and also puts real-life applications into the picture. So on that account, it does a very solid job and in many aspects a very self-contained book. Should be found on all electronics engineers to be and electronics engineers bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent text book for all the Electrical Engineers to be!, 6 Oct 2000
This review is from: Electromagnetics (Int'l Ed) (McGraw-Hill Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering) (Paperback)
The author does a very thorough job in explaining the nuances of electromagnetics. This is really a terrific all-around text. Not only broad, complete coverage of the theory, but lots of interesting real-world and practical examples.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent aproach to the real world physics., 7 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Electromagnetics (Int'l Ed) (McGraw-Hill Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering) (Paperback)
Although the lack of deep and extensive theoretical treatment, this book has contributed to a fantastic guided-to-reality learning through electromagnetics phenomena applied to the development of today's world.
