Overview


BETTER WRITING AND SUCCESS AT WORK BEGIN IN YOUR CLASSROOM WITH REPORTING TECHNICAL INFORMATION, ELEVENTH EDITION, A CLASSIC TEXT WITH THOROUGHLY CONTEMPORARY CONTENT.

One of the leading texts in technical writing, Reporting Technical Information introduces students to all aspects of effective professional communication, including letters, proposals, progress reports, recommendation reports, research reports, instructions, and oral reports.

FEATURES OF THE ELEVENTH EDITION:

* A fully integrated companion website--www.oup.com/us/houp--that offers:
Additional practical resources for students: chapter overviews, sample writings, self-tests, "current topic" annotated links and additional resources, interactive tutorials, key terms and concepts, downloadable versions of important question checklists from the book, and a collaborative network
Resources for instructors: an Instructor's Manual and downloadable PowerPoint files for use as lecture aids (also available on CD), links to online resources, and writing assignments instructors have shared for "Better Writing--Success at Work"
Three different types of icons throughout the book that direct students to the website for additional resources: sample documents, exercises, and further reading
* New, broader approach that prepares students in a variety of science, health, business, engineering, and technical majors to develop the types of documents they will need to write in their prospective work environments
* Strong focus on the rhetorical nature of writing, helping writers to understand their readers and the contexts in which their documents will be read and used, define their purpose in writing, and design documents using these issues as critical guidelines
* Updated and additional coverage of current technology, including thoroughly revised chapters on document design and usability that take into account web-based documents and platforms
* New opening scenarios for each chapter that demonstrate the impact of technical communication in the real world
* New chapters on content management, versatility and creativity for reports, and using design and format to achieve clarity in documents
* Increased coverage of ethics and international and global workplace issues
* Many new example documents--more than half of the sample documents in the text are new--and more illustrative figures
* More end-of-chapter exercises, including projects that encourage student interaction and collaboration, several of which are linked to an online component on the companion website

Table of Contents

The leading text in technical writing, Reporting Technical Information introduces students to all aspects of technical communication, including letters, proposals and progress reports, recommendation reports, research reports, instructions, and oral reports. Continuing the esteemed tradition of its predecessors, the tenth edition provides students with a solid foundation in technical communication and adds material on the most recent developments in the field.

Through accessible language, challenging exercises, and realistic examples, Reporting Technical Information begins with the basic strategies of composing and writing, progresses to techniques of technical communication, and closes by applying those techniques to document creation and design. Documentation instructions include Chicago and APA styles, as well as a guide for citing the Internet as a source. The book also offers detailed coverage of the latest technology in electronic communication, including material on writing collaboratively via e-mail, synchronous discussions, and FTP sites.

Keeping pace with the latest technology and research, this new edition provides information on such topics as when to use e-mail (rather than conventional letters and memos), writing for a specific audience, using illustrations, and searching the Internet for information on jobs and potential employers. Each chapter opens with a real-world scenario that shows students how the information in the chapter applies to an on-the-job situation. Comprehensive and up-to-date, Reporting Technical Information maintains the reputation of an exceptional text for courses in technical and professional writing and communication.

    Not Just A Textbook

    I needed this for a technical writing 1 class and now I use it for a reference book for my real non-technical writing job. Houp et al give wonderful examples that everyday cubicle people can relate to. Though this a text book, it is a great reference book to keep handy for any memos, documents, reports, and presentations anybody in any industry has to do.
