Helpful Logic Book

Postby jfb » Tue Oct 19, 2010 10:00 am

I have no idea what thread I saw this post in, but a couple of people recommended reading a specific logic/argumentation book to supplement lsat prep work. I think that it may have been in the "great advice on how to score a 160+" thread, but I have since been unable to find it. I'd like to take a look at it to keep my mind fresh in between now and when I may (but hopefully wont) have to start studying for a December retake.

I know that's not much information, but anyone have any idea what book I'm talking about??

Probably A Rulebook for Arguments by Weston or Informal Logic by Walton. Either of those ring a bell?

Man, you are good. It is informal logic by Walton. Any opinion on whether its useful for LSAT purposes??

Recently, I have been looking at an book called "The Power of Critical Thinking" by Lewis Vaughn. Part of Core curriculum, logic book. I have found it to be pretty useful for the few chapters of it I have read.
