Resources for Philosophy 4
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
But before doing that, I recommend first that you work the self tests within SacCT, and study the textbook's answers to the concept checks, and study the answers to the end of chapter questions.
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.
