    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course, preferably for your first semester as a freshman, as it teaches basic logic, or as Dr. Tostenson likes to call it, critical thinking. The knowledge of this course is indispensable in all academic life and I would argue for life in general.

    Course highlights:

    The course deals with formal and informal fallacies as well as analysis of explanations, arguments, and statements. It covered how to unpack an argument and then determine if it is valid or sound. The course text was informative and interesting enough that I purchased it and intend to keep it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most difficult aspect of the course is remembering the names of formal fallacies and their validity as well as other sets of formal categorical logic. I suggest using flash cards or preferably an app of similar function like AnkiApp.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very different terms of learning. It is not always black and white with answers, it requires you to think outside the box in ways you do not normally do on a day to day basis.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there are more than one way to look at an argument and the meaning of a statement can be very different from what you think it is.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come into the class ready to be challenged and push your minds more than in any other class.
