I want to thank the amazing professor Dr. Ram Neta, who taught me this amazing skills and helped me to better understand basic logic! Thank you very much!
This course sharpened my analytical thinking. Exam was deceptively difficult but worth taking multiple times.

I loved to take this course.
The professor is clever, funny and clear.
However, maybe because of being English my second language, I found difficult to get some issues ( i.e. "speech act" ) or understand the nuances in some exercises regarding "speech act" and" suppressed premises" (particularly in the final quiz, the more difficult questions to me were about the "suppressed premises").
So I would have liked that these harder issues have had found a clearer explanation during the lectures. Also in the final quizzes, it would have been useful giving the reason for the wrong answer (besides explaining the right one).
In fact, the quizzes are useful both for testing our understanding the matter and for learning from our mistakes too. In fact, we learn in a different and deeper way from our mistakes. To explain the reason for the mistakes is a good way to teaching and learning.
Although these notes, the course give enough awareness about our logical and linguistic skill and I'm going to take another one: "Think Again II: How to Reason Deductively". See you soon!

This course provides what deductive argument is valid in terms of sentence components, such as propositions, quantifiers, and so on. I am inclined to assume that this course is more relevant to logic construction without considering meaning of sentences. I suggest attenders, especially the people who take english as a second language, should pay attention on the definitions and meaning of symbols and terms. The reason is that terminology in videos is not 100% consistent with the exam content. In addition, please separate logic and brief when viewing analysis from the course speaker so that it is simply to know what he wanna express.
After this course, I realised that sometimes some colleagues reviews reports or essay only based on whether the deductive argument is valid or not. I would recommend this course with some pre-reading.

very interesting disecting an argument. truth tables gave me a hard time - so theoritical - not my thing! venn diagrams easy to grasp. 30 minutes for the final quiz, was too litle for me, cause it was easier to fill in the truth tables as a reuslt of a more mathematical approach than make all that deductive thinking. Had to take the final exam several times, but I'm so proud to have passed. I did it! needed more explanations on the incorrect answers though.

This course is good, and it is helpful when it comes to reasoning deductively, but I do have one problem with it. Whenever I'm done with a certain portion of it, it obviously says that I need to do it when I've already done it. That needs to be fixed!

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.
by Gabrielle B P•
The quizzes were a bit difficult because some of the items weren't discussed well in the lectures. It would be better if there were more comprehensive explanations to the answers in the quizzes
While still a very useful course, the material was less interesting to me personally than the first module. However it was still very rewarding and I enjoyed the instructor's lectures!

Somewhat confusing at certain points. The explanations don't exactly track the exercises that follow it. However, it is overall a useful course.
by Luis E V C•
Great explanations for most subjects. The tests are significantly more complicated than the excercises covered by the lectures.
by Abdulrahman A•
The course is extremely useful, but I found that the instructor is redundant. I often put the video speed on 1.5x.
by David W•
A good continuation of Think Again I. However, final quiz had lots of bugs in it.
by David L•
Would've liked more on the truth table of the conditional.

Combined with the book, it's a good course. But, if you only rely on the videos, the quizzes and final exam will be quite difficult. The quizzes and final exam contained much more difficult scenarios than presented or covered in the lectures.
