Briefly explain why you have taken a course in technical writing

Compare four different examples of technical writing in terms of ‘accuracy’, ‘clarity’, ‘conciseness’, ‘appropriateness to the audience’, ‘jargon used’, and ‘presentation’.

 

You may find different examples of technical writing in any of the following situations:

– In popular magazines or newspapers (e.g. motoring reports, articles on scientific issues);

– In reports (perhaps from local government authorities, or consultants). You may access reports through a local library, or perhaps on the internet;

– Brochures;

– Manuals (e.g. supplied with electrical equipment you have purchased).
