This is one of the books used for a class I teach.

I like this book, it's short and sweet.
This is a great reference book that will remain in my personal library long after I graduate. Valuable information regarding technical writing and professional writing.

Handbook of Technical Writing, Tenth Edition has been my go to book in my professional writing classes.
Ah, the audacity of the belief that if you just list all grammatical problems in alphabetical order, we can fix student writing once and for all. Our students will just look up "commas" or "jargon" or "passive voice" and all will be solved. Ha.
I sure am glad that I don't have to do a lot of technical paper writing any more, but I do recall that this book offered good advice on the subject.
