Although this book was very boring one might wonder how interesting could a book on this subject possibly be?
I went into my Technical Communications class already "done" with it. I had no intention nor belief that I would gain anything substantial or noteworthy from a course and it's corresponding book about "technical communications" as a student studying things far from suchbut I was humbly taken by surprise. My bitter attitude soon evaporated as the world of technical communications was unraveled before me and I absorbed it like my biology teacher's definition of osmosis. It was actuallyfulfilling d [...]
Now, we didn't look at all the chapters in class, but I have found this to be really helpful!I like how it gives you examples and explains the topics you're studying very well (sometimes too well!). I wish that some of the chapters could have been shorter, but that's merely a formality that can be ignored if you want to write better or just want a refresher.ConclusionIf you're taking some kind of professional writing course, technical writing, or just want to learn about grammar, etc. more, then [...]
This book is really outdated and is not really practical for the modern world. I mean, some of these things are useful, because some things do not change with the passing of time. All technological reference about modern technology is outdated. Seriously outdated. Some of the things do not even make sense to me, because it went out of style years ago. The book is okay, but not okay when it comes to technology. Do not read it for that. You would be wasting your time.
I haven't read every word of this book yet, but the chapters I have read have been tremendously valuable in helping me plan a career in technical writing. Markel is easily a good enough writer to make the subject matter interesting and accessible, and his exercises at the end of each chapter genuinely reinforce comprehension of the material with challenging real-world examples. I expect to find this book useful far beyond the scope of my class work.
This book is about as good as it gets when discussing boring-ass technical documents. The author's tone is casual, not pendantic. The real-life models throughout the text are excellent: they aren't all perfect, but that's the point. They are real and good for pointing out their strengths and weaknesses. One warning- the book is now out in a 9th edition. I found the web recourses provided by Bedford-Martin's to be incredibly useful, but they match up with the latest edition of the book.
výborně! tady je všechno a ještě hodně navíc :)i přes extrémní rozsah a ukecanost (což u technické komunikace nesnáším) se to čte dobře. stovky dobrých rad, postupů a vše vysvětleno i s příkladyeální kniha, ke které se budu často vracet.pokud bych měl vybrat jednu knihu o techcomm, tak asi tuhle - víc není potřeba.
Markel constructs a comprehensive and accessible introduction into the elements of technical communication. His ample use of examples provide useful models for anyone to analyze and/or mimic when constructing technical documents of his or her own. The text does not expect a linear reading. Skipping around is expected and easy. In a word: useful.
I used this as a textbook for an english class and it was very helpful! I am horrible when it comes to writing papers and similar documents. When I used "Technical Communication", it was one of the most helpful guides that I could use forever! Now, whenever I have an assignment that is similar to any document in this textbook, I know where to go ;)
One of the best course texts on the subject of Technical Communication I've come across. Current and full of applicable and helpful examples. My students seem to be loving it this semester. A course text that's not a waste of money? Score. :)
This is a book used for a class I teach.This book is O.K. There are definitely some areas that could have been better covered. I ended up supplementing information in this book with information from Kitty Locker's Business and Administrative Communication.
I read this for a graduate class in technical writing. It was okay. More or less, it provides a good foundation for the subject. Nothing particularly memorable.
