i agree with shelley as well, i have a background in engr-- bs in
geophysics, ms in material science, and a cert in tech writing. my engr
background has made it so helpful to speak with engr. they usually start
off in such simple terms-- i.e., there are 52 cards in a deck.... and i
have to stop them and say "wait a minute, i do know what you're talking
about." i get a lot of good feedback. and i have to say that after this
education, the most important thing i got from the certificate was
audience analysis. the rest i could have learned as i went. that is not
to say i don't regret the certificate, but many short courses and my life
experiences and interests have gone a long way to being able to write
about a variety of topics. my $.02 again....
