Summary

A stress-free and enjoyable approach to the research methods course
REVEL™ for Understanding Research is a practical and visually appealing introduction to research. Whether students become producers or consumers of research, W. Lawrence Neuman shows them that the subject is both interesting and highly relevant to their lives and professional work. REVEL for the Second Edition makes the essentials of doing high-quality research accessible, in ways that create excitement about the research process. Core principles, processes, and procedures of research are distilled — and presented with salient real-world examples and the latest academic studies — in a manner in which students will want to learn them.

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: REVEL is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone REVEL access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use REVEL.
