Deductive arguments are supposed to be valid in the sense that the premises guarantee that the conclusion is true. In this course, you will learn how to use truth-tables and Venn diagrams to represent the information contained in the premises and conclusion of an argument so that you can determine whether or not the argument is deductively valid.

Principales reseñas sobre THINK AGAIN II: HOW TO REASON DEDUCTIVELY
Compared to Think Again I, this II is more abstract and difficult. it takes more time to grasp the knowledge. and there are still things that I am confused about, despite having passed the final quiz.
This entire series was informative, engaging, and fun, and the thinking skills taught are so valuable.
Somewhat confusing at certain points. The explanations don't exactly track the exercises that follow it. However, it is overall a useful course.
The course is extremely useful, but I found that the instructor is redundant. I often put the video speed on 1.5x.
