The required text/software package for the course is Language, Proof, and Logic, 2nd edition. David Barker-Plummer, Jon Barwise and John Etchemendy. CSLI. 2011. The software works on PCs and Macs; install on any and as many computers you like.
Do not buy a used copy of this package, and do not “Rent” it. You can buy and download a digital copy at http://ggweb.stanford.edu/store, or order a new one from Amazon directly. The registration code that comes with a new copy of the book can only ever be registered to a single person, so someone’s used copy is going to be worthless to you.
