Why? Because they are illegal.” Non-sequitur – “I built a successful casino. I have created a lot of jobs over the years. Therefore, I will make a good president of the country.” (Premise 1 and 2 are true, and while the conclusion may be possible – it does not logically follow from Premise 1 and 2) Appeal to ignorance – the use of evidence “My car makes a bad sound, and that is evidence that it is breaking down. But I don’t see any signs of global warming where I live, therefore it is a hoax.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
