I took my test about 2 weeks ago and just got my scores in. I did amazing! I got my scores just in time to register for college courses. :) it's great being able to move on with my life and not be held back from not graduating anymore. Here's so advice for anyone interested.


English and writing are what i'm best at. But I recommend reading daily to increase your reading speed (since the tests are timed) and help expand your vocabulary for the essay. Spelling doesn't count on the essay, so you want to put all your effort into building a well thought out essay.

I failed math twice in high school, but I was 1 or 2 questions off from scoring a 100% on my GED math section. formulas are provided, it's mostly basic algebra and geometry. It doesn't get that advanced.

Science was the hardest for me on the test. It has some biology and chemistry (you DONT need to memorize the periodic table or chemicals) but it has quite a bit of physics. I dropped out of my physics class so I was lost when it was on the test. knowing formulas and common sense is what will help you ace it. :p

social studies is pretty easy. You don't need to memorize dates or anything. It's all comprehension. You read a paragraph and answer a few questions about it. There is a bunch of political cartoons and reading maps. so you don't need too much knowledge on history, you just need to be able to understand what is being implied. hence: 'comprehension' questions.


Hope that helps answer any questions for anyone getting ready to test. Just take your time, and remember you can always retest if you don't pass the first time. Good luck everyone!!
