- "This brief guide is ideal for science and engineering students and professionals to help them communicate technical information clearly, accurately, and effectively. The focus is on the most common communication forms, including laboratory reports, research articles, and oral presentations, and on common issues that arise in classroom and professional practice. This book will be especially useful to students in a first chemistry or physics laboratory course. Advanced courses will often use the same formatting as is required for submission to technical journals or for technical report writing, which is the focus of this book. Good communication skills are required in all forms of technical writing and presentation. This book is designed to help the reader develop effective communication skills. It is also an ideal reference on stylistic and grammar issues. Unlike most texts, which concentrate only on writing style, this book also treats oral presentations, graphing, and analysis of data."--BOOK JACKET.
