TOP REVIEWS FROM THINK AGAIN III: HOW TO REASON INDUCTIVELY
Course with fun and a deep insight into one of the most commonly used arguments
This entire series was informative, engaging, and fun, and the thinking skills taught are so valuable.
The course did a good job laying out the uses of inductive arguments in an organized manner. Also, I appreciate how the course organized the basic probability theory,
Fun and interesting! I'm debating a career change to either Computer Science or Law, so this is a great mental warm up for studying either.
