This brief version of Mike Markel's best-selling Technical Communication gives students clear advice and practical strategies for writing and designing all the major types of documents they will encounter in their professional lives. Retaining Markel's trademark student-friendly tone, the book offers concise yet thorough coverage of audience and purpose, research, style, and document design, user-friendly features to guide students in the writing process, and a wealth of annotated examples and sample documents to serve as models. Integrated coverage of social media and new technologies gives students the most up-to-date advice about technology in the context of specific tasks and documents. The print text is now integrated with e-Pages for Practical Strategies for Technical Communication, designed to take advantage of what the Web can do.
