Now, someone may have brought this up already (I'm on the digest version of
the list, so I only get updates once a day), but it seems we are missing a
point here. There is no one best method, no one educational track, that
produces good technical writers. Everybody learns differently, everybody
starts out with a different set of natural abilities and known or unknown
weaknesses. We all have different learning styles. No one degree program or
certification can meet all of our individual needs.

And don't forget that every job requires a slightly different set of skills.
