GED Reading Level Recommendation

It is important to prepare for the GED using the appropriate learning materials. This means materials that are appropriate with your current skills. It has been my experience that if you have a reading level of at least 10th grade, you should not have any problems with the Language Arts, Reading, Science, or Social Studies tests. If your reading level is lower than 10th grade, consider purchasing Pre-Ged study materials.
