Logic is the study of reasoning. Introduction to the theory of deductive reasoning, including propositional logic (the logic of "and", "or", "not", and "if...then") and predicate logic (the logic of "all", "some", and "none").

These skills are applicable to any discipline, and excellent for students looking to improve their reasoning skills in preparation for law school or entrance exams for any professional school.
