CheckPoint: Critical Thinking and Sexual Decision Making When making sexual decisions, I use the principles of critical thinking in a multitude of ways to make informed, careful decisions.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
