Mini-Quiz: Be a Champion Technical Writer

by Ron Kurtus (updated 14 March 2023)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How can you be thankful when you didn't get a good raise?

Consider that at least you have a writing job

Realize that you got a raw deal

You can't be thankful all the time

2. Why should you bother trying to be valuable to your company?

It is only necessary if it is in your job description

It isn't worth the effort, because they don't care about you

Your job depends on the value you produce

3. What good does it do to help others?

It is what makes life worthwhile

It is worthwhile if you want a favor at a later time

You've got to look out for yourself and not others 

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Technical Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
