Critical Thinking


Extra Reading Materials

If you were to pick up most any other textbook on critical thinking, you could read about the same topics we are covering, but you'd get to view them from another author's perspective, which can be helpful. Other textbooks can be found in the library, or by visiting the bookstore and seeing what other instructors of critical thinking are using. However, I recommend your working on the aids provided at Here you will find a summary of each chapter, frequently asked questions with answers, and sample tests with answers.

Also, be sure to try working the self-test questions each week in SacCT. Study the textbook's answers to the concept checks and also the answers to the end of chapter questions.


Study tips

You must be able to apply your critical thinking skills and knowledge to new examples, problems, issues and situations. That means you shouldn't study by trying to memorize anything word for word. Also, you won't see any of the same problems a second time; you will be facing new problems on the tests. The best way to study is to practice the skill, not memorize the examples.
