Some Chapter Exercises different. Verified Purchase. This is the older version. There is very little difference between this and the newer version, but it became an issue in our Logic course as there are some newer exercises in the new book.
Our professor was understanding and willing to work with us on the exercises, which are definitely different in many places, but which are used in our particular course. That may not be true in your course, but the exercises are very good, both in this book and in the new version. The book explains symbolic logic well and offers adequate instruction on how to break down statements to determine the logic of an argument, or whether a statement actually qualifies as an argument.
For the little that I paid I was satisfied. Some people have criticized this, but symbolic logic is a bit technical, and it may be necessary to reread the information presented in the book and restructure it into your own notes so that you can get the hang of it. I would expect that with any book on this topic. I understand that I rented the book but i wasn't expecting to get it completely broken. The spine is barely intact and theres 10 pages of needed information missing.
I should have just bought it new. Obviously, I bought the book for a class. She is not the best of writers. Unfortunately, I can't give an opinion on which book would be better. Great book! The practice problems really help you out. Great value. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web.
