Contents Notes
"This resource - alphabetically arranged for quick reference - provides guidance on the writing process, in-depth treatment of grammar and usage, abundant real-world examples of technical writing, and up-to-date coverage of technology. The Handbook features more than 500 alphabetically arranged entries covering effective print, oral, and electronic communication in government, science, and industry and offers plentiful models of effective reports, proposals, visuals, correspondence, and much more. A unique four-way access system - the alphabetical organization, topical key to the alphabetical entries, checklist of the writing process, and comprehensive index - ensures fast, accurate retrieval of information. This edition, with its thoroughly updated and expanded coverage of electronic communication, includes new and revised entries on Web page design, the Internet, search engines, email, faxes, and more, with added coverage of online research and solid advice on finding, evaluating, and documenting Internet sources. New ESL tips boxes offer additional writing help to nonnative speakers of English, new writer's checklists highlight key information, and an appealing new two-color design makes the Handbook easier to use than ever."--Jacket.
