8 a.m. class. That alone should have scared me away from this class, but I thought I could handle it. I was wrong. This class sucked, for me. It's nothing what I expected it to be. I love philosophy, but this is not you're conventional philosophy. You just taking a crazy sentence and trying to make it into a symbol. Doesn't make sense, I know. Here is an example. If it is not the case that If Richard won't Terry will, Kit won't. This magically means, (~(~R->T)->~X). SEE! Stupid! It turns out to be basically math. I will say that I was a bad student though, and fell behind. I missed a few lectures, and that screwed me. Since it is a lot like math, you can't afford to fall behind, and I fell behind. As a final warning, do not think I am stupid! I got a 4.0 last quarter, but if you suck at math, and are not a morning person, do not take this class.
I just realized I evaluated the class, and not the professor, Levy is real cool. Funny too. But I had to drop the class, so this is sort of a conflicting statement.

This course can be difficult or easy depending on how your mind works. However, with some practice anyone can get significantly better at it. Take myself for example, I only had an 89 for my first midterm but ended up with a 99 for my final.
Professor Levy is a great professor. He has a very good grasp on the material and cares a lot about his students. His powerpoints are clear and easy to understand. The homework is minimal and reasonable and the Logic 2010 program is quite easy to navigate.
I have nothing but good things to say about this class and would encourage it to anyone.

To clear up, this class is "Logic, Second Class," not phil of bio.
For those who didn't take Prof. Levy's PHILOS 31, he is a very funny professor (and a super agreeable person! He agreed to give me PTE even though he didn't know who I was, but I eventually got in without a PTE), and use slides that's useful enough for self-review. The homework is much harder than 31, so going to discussion sessions and TA's office hours would be very helpful. My TA was Ian Boon, and he really knows his stuff, perhaps better than Prof. Levy. If you aced your homework, then you don't have to worry about the exams, which are definitely easier than homework, so be sure to really understand how to do your homework and you'll get an easy A.
