UG Logic Class Schedule

Postby Paulzilla » Fri Jan 22, 2010 4:56 pm

I have been reading this forum for about a month and whenever the topic comes up about a UG logic class there seems to be some disagreement as to whether or not it is worth taking. I was wondering if a logic class that covers the followin would be helpful or just a waste of time:

Atomic Sentences
Boolean Connectives
Methods of Proof for Boolean Connectives
Formal Proofs
Logic of Quantifiers/Multiple Quanitfiers

I plan on taking the LSAT in fall of this year so I'm not yet familiar with the types of logic that are on the test, and I would greatly appreciate any input.

Most of that stuff will have no application to the actual LSAT, The parts on conditionals and quantifiers are really the only things that apply. I took a formal logic class and found that very little applied to the LSAT. We indeed went over conditionals, quantifiers, and typical logical flaws, but this constituted very little of the class.
