Cool. Glad to have another physicist-in-training on hubski!

Yeah, I used Landau & Lifshitz (Vol. II) for Electrodynamics this spring semester. So dense! But generally good. I'm more of an experimentalist (read: stupider than theorists), so maybe Jackson would have been better for me, but whatever. Most of my problem sets are custom designed by the professors, eliminating any possibility of finding solutions online, which is probably for the best.

I'm a magnetospheric guy. Worked for NASA for a few years building plasma spectrometers after I got my bachelor's, mostly engineering type stuff. I do NOT recommend taking time off between undergrad and grad school, it's been very difficult to get back up to speed on the curriculum. I'm barely scraping by, in terms of GPA.

Anyway, cheers dude!

Edit: I see you have updated your profile with quite a bit more info. We'd definitely get along, but I can guarantee you'd make me feel pretty dumb, hahahah
