9780028641461: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Technical Writing

The media says technical writing is a hot new career (and judging by the nearly 10,000 job offerings listed on career Websites, the media is probably correct), but no clear path exists for someone wanting to become a technical writer. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Technical Writing provides a solid grounding in the principles and techniques of writing for software and hardware companies. A veritable "cheat sheet" for tech writing, the book tells readers what they can expect on the job, and guides them through every phase of a project.
