Essentials of Technical Communication (Paperback)
In today's complex workplace, no one wants to read what you write. The Essentials of Technical Communication, Fifth Edition, was developed with this principle in mind. The respected author team continues to provide students with accessible and comprehensive instructions for planning, drafting, and revising technical documents that are clear and concise. Divided into two flexible parts--Principles and Applications--the text lays a strong foundation in the rhetoric principles before examining the principle types of workplace documents with checklists for use in preparing them.
