Today's professionals need to construct good arguments and understand that using logic is important to their success. With excellent examples from real-life sources-including film, news media, pop culture, court cases, letters to editors, philosophical, and scientific works-A First Course in Logic helps readers see how logic relates to real life and makes the material more accessible and engaging. Over 1,000 exercises are included and questions similar to those on the LSAT show readers how what they are learning is relevant to pre-professional exams.

Providing students with a more understandable introduction to logic without sacrificing rigor, "A First Course in Logic" presents topics and methods in a highly accessible and integrated manner. By integrating and comparing topics throughout and using the same examples in different chapters, the author shows the utility and limitations of each method of logic. Consistent pedagogical structure helps students learn and study better; the introduction now emphasizes strategies and tactics for applying memorization rules. One-of-a-kind LSAT-type exercises apply logic to pre-professional exams. This Gold Edition of the text now uses more standard notation and has been thoroughly class-tested and revised for absolute accuracy of information.About the Author:
K. Codell Carter believes that teaching should be a conversation between friends, and he wrote A First Course in Logic to reflect this ideal. He has taught more than four thousand beginning logic students throughout his teaching career.
Carter is currently a professor at Brigham Young University where, in addition to logic courses, he teaches courses on the history of philosophy (especially Kant and Marx) along with freshman and junior level writing courses. He received his Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and his Masters of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Utah and holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Cornell University.
His publications include works on 19th and 20th Century medicine, and when not thinking about ways to make the study of logic more relevant to students' lives, he enjoys backpacking, gardening, fly fishing, old books, and mountain lakes above the timberline.
