When we’ve enrolled this subject we didn’t know what this is all about, in our mind we think that it’s all about writing. When Mr. Mark Gil Gabe introduced this subject we’ve learned that technical writing is very important in our lives, courses, and it is a unique subject. This subject consist of different students and courses but we ended up of one definition that technical writing is giving an account of an aspect of a particular business, science, technology, trade, industry and other profession.
We have learned that the relevance of technical writing helps us to understand easily on how to operate a certain technology through user’s manual and guide. We’ve learned also the qualities of a good report writer this are the following: organized thinking, objectivity, mental alertness, intellectual curiosity, motivation if we have all this qualities we can organized and identify all the information we’ve gathered.

We need to think and to study, after this we collect all the information through interviews, scan notes taken from books and journals and surfing the internet. Then designing, rough drafting, and the final step is revising the report. Technical writing got a lot of end products such as abstract, business letter, feasibility report and so on. Technical writing thought me and my partner how to produce a good report and to become an effective reporter using different expository techniques.
The techniques are definition, description of mechanism and process, classification, comparison and contrast, cause and effect, illustrations, partition, analogy and interpretation. Technical writing is written in a technical form. We’ve learned that if we didn’t understand some words we can easily refer to the so called “Holistic Guide “where in each word was represented by the English Alphabet Letter such as A as accuracy, B as brevity, C as confidence and so on. This guide contains familiar words which we can understand easily. In technical report we’ve learned the nature and function.
The function of this is to give a useful information to the readers in order them to understand. This is the characteristic of a report are the following systematic, objectivity, factual, informative, functional. It is very important to know this so that when we make a report we can easily organized it well and it help us to create an effective report.

This is some of the example of report feasibility report, field report , research report, proposal, and so on. Making business letter is quite difficult but now we’ve learned how to create and it is not important to use a complex word in writing it. We’ve learned also the different parts of business letter and its function. Therefore we are so very bless that we enrolled this subject because we’ve learned a lot about technical writing and its significance in our lives.
