Boolean Practice 1: AND OR NOT

Boolean Practice 1 (AND, OR, NOT)

 

In the course Creating Searches with Boolean: Foundations we reviewed the Boolean operators everyone should know in order to create searches. Here is a safe place where you can practice your new knowledge. You can also practice in Explore and test your search to see if you are getting the results you expected.

 

How it works:

  1. Pick at least one scenario listed below and create a mock search.
  2. Add your search as a reply below. No cheating!
  3. Once you post your search, review what other learners have added to see how it compares.
  4. We will PM you the answer key

 

Let’s Practice

 

Let’s practice using AND, OR, NOT, and quotations.

 

Scenario 1 👵

Find documents that mention Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker but don’t mention Darth Vader.

 

Scenario 2 🍔

Find documents that mention at least one of the following keywords: hamburgers, veggie burgers, and chicken tenders. All documents should also include the keyword drive-through.

 

Scenario 3 

Find documents that mention Delta Airlines but not the keywords: travel deals, coupons, or discounts.
