HASH(0xa823699c) out of 5 stars Love it! Oct. 25 2012
By Jason M. Kovach - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm a geek, a good looking geek, but a geek none-the-less and I really dig this book. Had to get it for a class as part of the Bachelor's of Science in Scientific & Technical Communication that I am pursuing, but I will NOT be selling this one back for cash after the semester. I have already used it outside of school to help me format my bradda's letter for promotion and it helped me with a project in another class. I read my copy almost a month before the semester started and didn't have to struggle, it was genuinely interesting and an excellent piece of technical communication.

HASH(0xa80a3588) out of 5 stars Great textbook! Oct. 4 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy to read and understand, well-organized, an has lots of helpful pictures of real documents for examples. Also provides tips about doing things primarily on computers. I actually find the reading interesting, instead of dry and boring like in most textbooks. Enough said.

HASH(0xa807c5a0) out of 5 stars I kept this book April 10 2014

I bought this book for an online Technical Writing course. I was surprised to discover this book to be an immense wealth of useful knowledge. The book has real, functional examples of business writing. I don't like keeping textbooks, but I kept this one as a reference.
HASH(0xa7f099fc) out of 5 stars Great book! Nov. 4 2011
By Mrs. Sean Maguire - Published on
Format: Loose Leaf
I had to purchase this book for a Technical Writing course I am taking at college. I really love this book. I can actually say I looked forward to reading assignments for the class, haha. The chapters are fairly small and there are so many examples, you might even get tired of them. I find all the examples to be extremely helpful and when I had to write letters, memos, emails, job packets, instructions, technical descriptions, the examples really gave me a great starting point to work from. Obviously, because this is a book about technical writing and writing effectively and efficiently, it is organized and layouts out SO well. This is by far the easiest textbook I have ever read in my life. The only flaw I find with this book is the 3 hole punched version, which I have. It is a smaller version of a standardized textbook so when you try and put it in a three ring binder, it only fits in the top 2 holes which inevitability tears the book up. Besides this, this is a great book! Would reccommend if you want to become up to date with the technical writing of today.
