    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course seems a lot more complicated than it really is. Once you get a hang of the basics, it all falls into place.

    Course highlights:

    The most helpful thing I learned was dissecting arguments to simplify and understand them, as well as recognizing fallacies and invalid arguments.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write down as many of the arguments and their corresponding truth tables or diagrams as possible! The class is so much easier if you do that instead of just trying to understand the required readings.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Be sure to go to all of the lectures and discussion sections, and read the book as much as possible, it is crucial to the understanding of the course. The exams are pretty hard, however, the TA always has study sessions that are very helpful and he will make study guides too, always use those to study.

    Course highlights:

    How to do truth tables, as well as different ways to critically evaluate literature and journal articles which I found to be quite helpful for my future career.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to test out of this class beforehand if you can. If you need to take this class, always read the book.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I know it is a required course at WSU. The course is a lot easier with other professors, and I've noticed this by seeing what my friends do in the same class. Vineberg treats her intro class like we already have prior knowledge. She is socially awkward and hard to listen to due to her change in tones of voice constantly.

    Course highlights:

    This course was overall pretty bland. The professor made it exceptionally difficult to the point where I did not want to attend the class and found it easier to teach myself on my own time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the material! It's crucial. The book does not always do a great job of explaining, but you can find a lot online that really will help you!
