Review:

"Silyn-Roberts...presents this technical manual for writing in the sciences, intended to help students build technical competency. The basic structure of a scientific document and how to work from a skeleton of headings is covered, followed by considerations for specific types of documents. Advice on references, conventions, revising and editing is given. A small section on style is included, and the book ends by treating oral presentations."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013 'Practical advice contained within the pages alongside numerous examples to aid learning will make the preparation of documentation much easier for all students'.--Engineering Designer, March 2001 "Writing for Science and Engineering will prove invaluable in all areas of research and writing due to its clear, concise style".--The Engineers Journal, October 2000 "Excellent text"--Professor Doug Probert, School of Mechanical Engineering, Cranfield University 'This book could serve as a practical guide to all aspects of documentation in Engineering, Science and Technology areas.'--Chemical Industry Digest, Feb. 2001
