The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I'd like to poll the members of this list regarding a problem I encountered
this week. I was contracted to create a training course for some help desk
people. It was supposed to be a one week workshop to teach those involved
with a software company how to troubleshoot Windows problems (3.1/95/NT). I
created a 135 page manual which included 4 pages of TOC and List of Tables.
So, really a 131 page manual.
The question: counting research time, writing, and editing; how many hours
do you think this would take to have the final version ready for duplicating?
