    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a fun philosophy class that is just like math but with words.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights have a lot to do with knowing how to conduct an argument, and what the conclusion should be. Another highlight is learning how to make sentences that could be false but are actually true in the aspect of philosophy. I learned a lot, bu the main thing is how to symbolize sentences.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go see your TA if you have any questions. The professor is cool and he does not try to trick you on tests. Go to class because you learn something new each day.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I took the course because I mistakenly believed it to fulfill the philosophy requirement, I however was played for a fool as it actually counts as a quantitative reasoning class. If you're looking for an easy way to get your Q over with though, I'd say take it; it's essentially like learning about geometry proofs.

    Course highlights:

    Personally, I didn't learn anything useful. I learned how to learn logic problems which are only useful within the scope of a logic class, but Modes Ponens isn't about to be applied to my daily life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I'd say take a different class; a stats class for sure would be more valuable to have taken than this. If you want to take this class, look in his notes for homework help. The problems in there are fairly similar to what he assigns for homework.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very useful, but Professor Wilson makes it mostly dull. Pay attention, study the book, and ask questions of the TAs and you will be fine.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to spot both valid and invalid reasoning. This means understanding what a sound argument looks like. This proves especially useful for pre-law students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go on YouTube and search "Intro to logic." Learn the basics of deductive reasoning before you begin this course. A bit of familiarity can only help.
