This is a general writing, research and style guide for students of engineering and the technical sciences. In addition to outlining the general principles of readability, grammar and useage, it focus specifically on the concerns of engineering students such as writing abstracts, reports and proposals; presenting data in reports; and working in collaboration with other students or colleagues. Like the other books in the series thie edition offers coverage of writing in exams, writing CVs and letters of application and using the internet as a resource. The book is small enough to be accessible yet comprehensive enough to be useful.
