Book Description

Feb. 25 2008 032149833X 978-0321498335 4

Technical Communication has been a market-leading textbook through three editions while continuing to be the only text in technical and professional communication studies to feature a four-colour, visually-appealing design. Technical Communication is the only text to offer MLA, APA, and now IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) documentation.  This popular text presents content clearly to students for whom this is likely the only composition or communications course to which they are going to be exposed, and includes all of the comprehensive material required by students who do not have strong writing backgrounds.  With new content, structural changes, and a new Content + solution, the fourth edition of Technical Communication will continue to be a valuable communications tool for students.
