Do you need to demonstrate a good argument or find more evidence?  Are you mystified by your tutor′s comment ′critical analysis needed′?  What does it really mean to think well - and how do you learn to do it?

Critical thinking is a set of techniques. You just need to learn them.

So here’s your personal toolkit for demystifying critical engagement. I’ll show you how to sharpen your critical thinking by developing and practicing this set of skills, so you can…

  • Spot an argument and get why reasoning matters
  • Sniff out errors and evaluate evidence
  • Understand and account for bias
  • Become a savvy user of technology
  • Develop clear, confident critical writing.

Designed to work seamlessly with a power pack of digital resources and exercises, you′ll find practical and effective tools to think and write critically in an information-saturated age.  No matter whether you′re launching on your first degree or arriving as an international or mature student, Critical Thinking gives you the skills, insights and confidence to succeed.
