    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course as it thoroughly teaches you the fundamentals of critically thinking about all aspects of life and decision making. It teaches and guides you through the different styles of reasoning, inductive and deductive. It really got the juices in my brain flowing unlike most classes I have taken in college. Cognitive aptitude is at a new high for me after taking this course. I know many who feel the same way as I do. After taking this class I realize there is always more than one side of every story and it taught me how to gather the facts, differentiate between subjective and objective statements, and whether said statements were valid and/or sound.

    Course highlights:

    The greatest highlights of this course for me were not only was it something I read about and learned in class and through reading but through applying in my day to day life. It wasn't something that I needed to wait until I got out of college to finally do at my first job. From the moment I left my first class I was able to use the teachings and see its truth for myself. A great point for me was that there weren't these outrageous names and definitions, like ones I had in Psychology. My instructor used many examples to help us see the difference between certain terms so we'd be familiar with them when we came across them in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I urge you to put your personal views and thought processes to the side when you take this course. It has so much to teach that going in with a closed mind will only limit your learning and ability to grow and become so much better than you already are. It isn't hard but isn't easy so plan on setting aside a few hours per week reading and analyzing the material you cover. I not only used that time I set aside but started using its tactics in my everyday life. I suggest you do the same as applying it and using it in my daily life helped me learn the difference and see the difference.
