I hated the class and hated the book Dec 18 2014
By Dennis - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had to have this for a class. I hated the class and hated the book. To be honest, I don't see its use, but someone who was actually a technical writer for a living might benefit. Other than that, just no.
Great book for learning technical writers July 1 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this as required material for a technical writing class, but I really learned a lot from it. It is well written and organized. I would recommend for anyone who is interested in technical writing!
