In the era of information technology, organizations seek employees who have excellent communication skills. The advantage is for the individuals who, with their excellent communicative ability, are able to meet the challenges of the professional world through diverse paths such as writing, speaking, reading, and listening.

This comprehensive and student friendly book dwells on various aspects of technical communication that students of science and engineering should be familiar with. Divided into two parts, Part A of the text describes in detail the planning, designing and drafting of documents for a broad range of situations and applications. The text explores the types of business letters reflecting current practices, and different techniques of drafting them. Since, in the professional settings, executives have to work in teams, the book explains various causes of communication breakdown and ways to overcome them.
