While this book covers the material for an introduction to logic, it does not do so in a manner that enables learning. Nance's approach seems to be introducing the material in a succinct way and then expecting the students to regurgitate the text verbatim for the test. The book would have been better if it included more exercises with each section and was written in a more conversational style, with more examples for each concept.

This was an excellent volume from which I learned the rudiments of logic. I especially enjoyed the parts which spoke about (1) the five rules which test the validity of a syllogism, (2)Invalid forms of mixed hypothetical syllogisms, and (3) Informal Fallacies or 'street-fighting' logic. And I just adore the square of opposition!

Good stuff from Wilson and Nance.

The best place to start for a book on logic. The authors chew the material and feed it to you.

It comes with a workbook to help you further remember the material.

Recommended for high-schoolers and early college students...or really smart middle-schoolers. :)

Probably two and a half stars because I didn't like how you had to memorize definitions for the tests, how the sentences were overtly Christian and sometimes strange and confusing, and how it was sometimes hard to see how everything that was taught applied to real life.
I loved learning logic last school year, and I thought this book was understandable and perspicuous in its teaching of the subject. It had good exercises although some of the statements were incorrect. However, it would have been better if they had more real life examples.

This is a great introduction textbook. My criticisms are that there are not enough exercises/assignments, and so I found myself needing to make up more for my class. It also comes out weak on theory, but for a Jr. High text it works well.

Good little primer on classical, Aristotelian logic.

Best suited for children.
