From the Back Cover

Are you looking for a practical, streamlined, and inexpensive text for your course?

 

Strategies for Technical Communication in the Workplace clearly and concisely presents the many complex aspects of technical and workplace writing at a more affordable price than most other books in the market.

 

Do you want to provide students with practical guidance they can apply when creating effective workplace documents? 

 

Strategies presents technical and workplace communication in a hands-on manner, keeping the focus on doing. Hands-on features include Let's Get Started prompts, marginal notes, in-chapter Strategies boxes, and end-of-chapter Checklists and Application exercises.

 

Would your students benefit from a wide variety of annotated model documents?

 

Students learn best by not only creating but also seeing effective annotated examples of workplace documents and other communications. See Chapters 9 — 17.

 

Do you want your students to be prepared for today’s workplaces with the latest knowledge about global issues and technology?

 

The importance of reaching a global audience is introduced as a major topic in Chapter 2 and carried throughout the book. Strategies also addresses today’s workplace technologies by incorporating up-to-the-minute coverage of email, instant messaging, blogs, wikis, online video, podcasts, Web pages, presentation software, and more.  See Chapters 18 — 21.

I rated this okay but was disapointed to find out when my class began that I was suppose to buy the next revision, my instructor let me use this book but it made it hard because the chapters were off from the newer edition.
