Prepare for GED Test Series

Prepare for GED Test Series

Lacking a high school diploma no longer has to hold you back in your career aspirations. If you're comfortable reading a high school textbook, doing basic math operations without a calculator, and writing a short letter in English, then you're ready to take the GED® test. More than 300,000 Americans take the GED® test annually and those who pass gain the skills and knowledge equivalent to a U.S. high school diploma.

Preparing for the GED® is key to passing the test, and an online course helps you prepare on your own time. The Prepare for GED Test Series will help you analyze your strengths and weaknesses, so you can focus your studying on the areas you need the most. You will learn about the four GED® test modules, with an additional focus on the skills needed to pass the Mathematical Reasoning module.
