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
using. However, I recommend your working on the aids provided at http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0073386677/student_view0/index.html
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.
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.
