What are the GED tests?
Even though you have not finished high school, you may have gained skills and knowledge through reading, informal training, and your own life experience.  The GED tests are designed to measure the general knowledge of specific academic areas, usually learned during four years of high school, that you may have obtained in a different manner.
HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR THE  OFFICIAL GED  TEST?
Assessments - There are a total of five subject areas on the test.   All are multiple choice along with one essay question.  When you enroll in the GED preparation course, you will be given the GED Practice Test.  The practice test is similar in topic, difficulty, and format to those on the official GED test, but contain only half as many questions.  In class, you may complete one or more practice tests in one class session.  When all five tests are completed, the results and scores will be reviewed with you and a suggested study plan will be designed.  The evaluation of this test by your instructor will help to predict how you will do on the official test.  

Study Plan - It is the purpose of the practice test to show what areas you need to study in order to pass the official test.  Based on the results, each student is given his or her own study plan that directs which subjects or skill areas need to be reviewed.  The instructional staff will explain the scores and the plan of study necessary for you to achieve your goal.   As each subject area or assignment is completed, you will be given another practice test to determine your progress.  Once your study plan and all assignments are completed, your practice test results should reach a passing score.

Passing Scores -  Individual tests must be 410 or higher to pass.  The entire test score must reach a minimum total of 450  points.  A score higher than 450 on your practice tests may be a good indication that you will pass the official GED test.  At the completion of your studies, you will be given information to make an appointment for your official GED test.
