I recommend both:
Introduction to Technical Writing, Lois Rew
Editing for Writers, Lois Rew
Both should be on or they might be found in college bookstores. Alternatively, you can get them on I believe.

The editing book is actually more than just editing.

I have taken three classes with Rew and she really seems to know her stuff.

Subject: Basic Tech Writing Rule Book

Can anyone recommend a good tech writing "rule book?" I'm thinking of
something along the lines of Strunk and White's Elements of Style, only with
a focus on the elements of technical writing - active voice; present tense;
etc. Such a book would be useful to new technical writers. Is there such a
book, or is this just wishful thinking on my part?
