I've Finished Reading the Technical Writing One Pre-class material.
I thank Google for this FREE and Comprehensive material.
The following are the basic lessons I looked at.
Use terms consistently.
Avoid ambiguous pronouns.
Prefer active voice to passive voice.
Pick specific verbs over vague ones.
Focus each sentence on a single idea.
Convert some long sentences to lists.
Eliminate unneeded words.
Use a numbered list when ordering is important and a bulleted list when ordering is irrelevant.
Keep list items parallel.
Start numbered list items with imperative words.
Introduce lists and tables appropriately.
Create great opening sentences that establish a paragraph's central point.
Focus each paragraph on a single topic.
Determine what your audience needs to learn.
Fit documentation to your audience.
Establish your document's key points at the start of the document.
Before you go.
