Karen Knisely’s indispensible handbook provides practical advice to students who are learning to write according to the conventions in biology, covering everything from reading technical literature and writing scientific papers, to preparing lab reports and making oral presentations of scientific findings. Since scientific communication requires unique competencies on the computer (for example, producing Greek letters and mathematical symbols), almost half of the handbook is devoted familiarizing students with helpful features in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint—features that are essential to professional quality scientific communication.

There are numerous complete examples, many taken directly from either student or business samples. It also asks students to critically examine the goals and methods of engineering communication. Written with step-by-step instruction on how to create both written and oral communication, the pedagogy includes end-of-chapter exercises to give the students opportunity to use what they have learned, and for the instructor to assess student mastery.
