Hello fellow GED test-takers! I am brand-new here and have just decided to start studying for the GED.

Here's my question: What is the best "plan of attack," when it comes to studying for the GED. I want to get a score of 3,000 or higher because this is the requirement for the college (Brooklyn College) that I want to get into.

Should I get a tutor, take classes somewhere, is a book or two enough? My local library (Brooklyn Library) also offers some pre-GED classes. What do you recommend.

By the way, I took the 4tests.com GED-test and here are my scores:

Reading: 90%
Writing: 92.59%
Math: 60%
Science: 63.64%
Social Studies: 64%

Any insight and reports of your own personal experience is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance, -Nick

In my experience most of the practice tests you take are a harder then the actual GED tests. I think it would be safe to assume that you will do at least 10% better on all the tests than you did on those practice tests. Which should put you up to at least 3000 total.</P><P>Personally, I bought McGraw-Hill's GED book. I took the short pre-tests and anything I did worse then 70% in I spent 1- 15 hours studying for.
