Some minor differences in text, mainly updated for generational relevance. Some Chapter Exercises different. This is the older version. There is very little difference between this and the newer version, but it became an issue in our Logic course as there are some newer exercises in the new book.
Understanding Symbolic Logic, 5th Edition
Our professor was understanding and willing to work with us on the exercises, which are definitely different in many places, but which are used in our particular course. That may not be true in your course, but the exercises are very good, both in this book and in the new version. The book explains symbolic logic well and offers adequate instruction on how to break down statements to determine the logic of an argument, or whether a statement actually qualifies as an argument.
For the little zymbolic I paid I was satisfied. Some people have criticized this, but symbolic logic is a bit technical, and it may be necessary to reread the information presented in the book and restructure it into your own notes so that you can get the hang of it.
I would expect that with any book on this topic.
One person found this helpful. Obviously, I bought the book for a class. She is not the best of writers.
Understanding Symbolic Logic
Unfortunately, I can’t give an opinion on which book would be better. The practice problems really help you out. This is a decent textbook. The third edition this edition is almost EXACTLY identical to the fourth edition, all the exercises are the same, the only difference being underetanding page numbers. Despite being overly wordy in more places than one see: It may seem like wymbolic overwhelming amount of material at first, but if you stick with it, it really isn’t that difficult.
As long as you take it slowly, and your instructor is able to explain things in simpler terms than the book, you’ll do just fine. I used this for a college course a couple of years ago. This subject can be hard to grasp after a while, but I still enjoyed it personally. It is not a book to read for the fun of it unless you like challenging material. See all 33 reviews.
