This is a first course in logic and critical thinking. The course will be divided into two parts:

  1. informal logic which involves analyzing and evaluating arguments using fallacy theory and theory of definitions, and
  2. formal logic which involves symbolizing arguments and evaluating them using truth-tables and Venn diagrams.

This course will be helpful to those planning on writing standardized tests for law school, graduate school, or medical school. It is also good background for more advanced logic courses, and in general, it is a good course for improving reasoning skills with applications to any field.
