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...

Prepare for the GED® test and master the skills required to pass the Mathematical Reasoning module. You will start off with a reviewing the four modules and then dive into math basics to build the foundation you need to solve math problems. In the process, you will develop hands-on experience with percentages, proportions, statistics, algebra, geometry, and more.

In each lesson, you will apply your knowledge to practice questions similar to those used in the test series. You will know how, when, and why to use each math concept you learn. By the time you finish this course, you will be confident with your math skills and about taking the test.

Series bundles are not eligible for partial drops or refunds. Transfers to other open sessions of the same course are available. Please refer to your school for additional details regarding drops, transfers, and refunds on Series bundles.
