5 Tips To Prepare For Your GED® Exam
1. Familiarize Yourself with the Test
The General Educational Development (GED) test evaluates your skills in mathematics, science, social studies, reading and writing. Created and administered by the American Council on Education (ACE), there are various ways to prepare for this high-school equivalency exam. Be sure your study plan addresses every subject in the exam.
2. Consider an Online Study Course
We recommend using online study resources (like GED Fast) to prepare yourself for your exam. GED Fast offers an online study course that allows you to study at your own pace, on your own time. GED Fast offers a powerful study package that is available online using any device of your choice.
3. Take Practice Tests
Practice tests can show you what types of questions are on the GED tests and help identify areas where you need more study. You can study using GED Fast practice questions and then test your knowledge using GED Fast simulated exams, which are timed and graded the same way as the actual exam.
4. Know What Tools You’ll Need for the Test
Your test center will provide you with an embedded calculator for use on one part of the mathematics exam. However, you may choose to bring your own TI-30XS Multiview Scientific Calculator to use on the GED exam.
Test-takers should also familiarize themselves with the GED Math Formulas & Symbols Reference sheet. The guide will be provided at the testing center, but can also be found on the GED Testing Service website.
5. Contact Your Local Test Center
There are more than 3,400 test centers in the U.S. and overseas. Contact a test center in your area to get your questions answered. Call them to determine the testing times, the fee required, if any, and the directions to the test center. You can find your local test center and contact person here.
