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.
