In the present day people are surrounded with a lot of  information and different ways of receiving this information. Today at the same moment the information is spread, it becomes available on the other corner of the world. Because of these reasons the educational system in many countries of the world has changed. One of the skills that can help young people to select numerous information is their critical thinking ability. In this paper the impact of exercise on development of critical thinking has been researched. This research was conducted by the experimental method. The research sample consisted of 50 subjects in the experimental group and 50 subjects in the control group. The exercise of critical thinking is done through three techniques for the development of critical thinking such as: diagram of the main question, the scale of arguments and interpretation of academic language. For the measurement of critical thinking is used the test WGCTA (Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal). The results obtained show that the experimental factor affects the development of critical thinking, which means exercising critical thinking contributes to the development of this ability. The conducted survey should help in creating a program with practical exercises that will help future teachers to influence the development of critical thinking of their students.

Key words: critical thinking, development, impact.
