About this deal

No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. I like the fact that the book has lots of activities and tests for you to complete, so that you aren't just being bombarded by lots of information. Ideal for students who are mystified by lecturer comments such as 'more analysis needed', this title takes the art of analysis and breaks it down into easy-to-understand blocks, with clear explanations, good examples, and plenty of activities to develop understanding at each stage.

A complex subject is broken down into easy to understand blocks, with clear explanations, good examples, and plenty of activities to develop understanding at each stage. This book breaks down every element of critical thinking skills, argument, analysis, and provides exercises in each section. The exercises are great as they underpin the knowledge and its surprising how much you take in as you work your way through each chapter. All in all, this book is an excellent source to deepen your understanding, reinforce your learning, and develop the skill to read between lines; not to forget effective note-making.The book does often include more words than are necessary, but it's easy enough to skip over those parts. Background knowledge is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for enabling critical thought within a given subject. There are checklists in this book to evaluate your own essays, such checking for internal consistency, logic rules, lines of reasoning, a clear thesis statement etc. I have such claim for three reasons: firstly, it has been helping me to realise that their is another way of thinking other than the 'traditional?

Good book, especially for people that are just starting university and who may need a good "tutorial" for learning a solid reading and writing method. Stella was formerly Director of Lifelong Learning at the University of Leeds, and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching at the University of East London.

Her other titles include The Study Skills Handbook, Critical Thinking Skills, Skills for Success, The Macmillan Student Planner, The Exam Skills Handbook and Mindfulness for Students. These dispositions, which can be seen as attitudes or habits of mind, include openand fair-mindedness, inquisitiveness, flexibility, a propensity to seek reason, a desire to be wellinformed, and a respect for and willingness to entertain diverse viewpoints. At whatever stage of learning you are at, Critical Thinking Skills takes the seemingly baffling art of analysis and makes it not so baffling. Once purchased, you can view your eBook through the Kortext app, available to download for Windows, Android and iOS devices. People later in their careers may find it a bit basic but you can consider it as a sort of reference.
