The volumes in the Making Sense series-covering courses in humanities, social sciences, life sciences, engineering, psychology, religious studies, and education-are intended for students in any undergraduate course with a research and writing component, but are especially appropriate for those at the first-year level.

Revisions to the eighth edition of Making Sense include coverage of new developments in technology-based research and writing, new instructions on creating effective arguments, and up-to-date coverage of MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE documentation styles.
