Wadsworth Companion Site for A Practical Study of Argument
www.wadsworth.com

In my opinion, not everything included on this "companion site" is quite as useful for study purposes as it claims to be (e.g., the online flashcards). I do recommend that students make use of the practice tests, however, and it may be useful to compare the online chapter reviews with your own notes.

Note: Be cautious -- indeed, very cautious -- about taking too seriously the results of the online quizzes that you find on this site. I've now gone through most of them and more than few contain spelling and/or grammar mistakes that might affect your response and some of the feedback explanations that you will receive in response to an "incorrect" answer are just plain wrong. Some, in fact, seem to have been written by someone who simply did not understand or read carefully the question being asked. I have pointed some of these errors out to Wadsworth and I will keep you posted on their response.

Note also: The chapter reviews are in Microsoft PowerPoint format. This is rather stupid, in my opinion, since it would have been trivially easy to make these files available in a genuinely cross-platform compatible format such as PDF. In any case, you do NOT necessarily need to have PowerPoint installed on your computer in order to view these files.You can instead use a free PowerPoint viewer available from Microsoft:

PowerPoint 2003 Viewer for Win 98 SE, ME, 2000, XP

PowerPoint 98 Viewer for Macintosh

Logic Font Download

If you would like to be able to work with propositional logic on your computer using our notation (e.g., to write out homework exercises) The Logic Café provides a not-bad font. Versions are available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Although some of their material ranges beyond what we will be covering in this course, students might also be insterested in having a look at the Logic Café tutorials.
