Common Logical Fallacies

Things you should watch out for when reading someone's arguments, and which are most abundant in the news.

Also, what I should look for in the Argument-Analysis Task in the GRE.

What's sad is that my GRE prep book mentained that I may "remember a list of logical fallacies during my undergraduate education", while I didn't take any class as such. I only remember from Psychology: "Correlation doesn't confer cause." Is it that there's some class I should've taken, or is it something we lack in Taiwan's higher education?
