Reasoning is important.  This course will teach you how to do it well.  You will learn how to understand and assess arguments by other people and how to construct good arguments of your own about whatever matters to you.

The lectures take quite a lot of time compared to the quizzes. The difficulty level is not very consistent. Some of the lectures and quizzes are really boring and repetitive, but that could just be me. I find the topic itself is very interesting. And even though I'm not always enjoying every bit, I do notice when I mechanically work through the course material, the material sticks which helps me to apply it outside the course which is the reason I took the course in the first place.

Excellent entertaining class that doesn't demand much of your time.

I enjoyed this class mainly because of the way Walter and Ram had fun with their real world examples. I might have had an easier time than some because I'd seen the material before through self-study. The course title I think confused many people into thinking this course was about public presentation or something. It is not! It is a standard "Introduction To Logic" course with fun professors.

Well, it was a course in logic. But logic doesn't have to be this dull.

Some parts were well done, some so unclear or confusing that students were swapping web sites that explained much better what the profs were trying to teach.

It was also poorly sub-titled, many thought it was going to be course in rhetoric, which may have contributed to the high dropout rate.
