Overview

For courses in Professional Communication and Workplace Writing.


Clear, down-to-earth presentation focusing entirely on job-related communications

Revel Workplace Communications: The Basics, 8th Edition meets the specialized needs of its intended audience — students entering trades, returning adult students, and other non-traditional learners — by focusing exclusively on practical applications in favor of theory. Searles’ tone is conversational and user-friendly, making this text ideal for learners of all abilities. Among many revisions and enhancements, the 8th Edition updates and expands coverage of searching for jobs online, creating an online profile on sites such as LinkedIn, writing cover emails, and crafting a résumé to submit online — and for the first time is available via Revel™.


Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.


NOTE: This Revel Combo Access pack includes a Revel access code plus a loose-leaf print reference (delivered by mail) to complement your Revel experience. In addition to this access code, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
