A unique four-way access system enables users of the Handbook of Technical Writing to find what they need quickly and get on with the job of writing:
1. The hundreds of entries in the body of the Handbook are alphabetically arranged, so you can flip right to the topic at hand. Words and phrases in bold type provide cross-references to related entries.
2. The topical key groups alphabetical entries and page numbers under broader topic categories. This topical table of contents allows you to check broader subject areas for the specific topic you need.
3. The checklist of the writing process summarizes the opening essay on "Five Steps to Successful Writing" in checklist form with page references to related topics, making it easy to use the Handbook as a writing text.
4. The comprehensive index provides an exhaustive listing of related and commonly confused topics, so you can easily locate information even when you don't know the exact term you're looking for.
