GED Checklist for Success

There are many factors you must consider if you are preparing for the GED test, or if you are helping someone prepare.

Over the next several weeks, I will focus on what I believe to be the 10 top concerns/questions regarding the GED. I will focus on the following questions (questions that have been asked of me many times over my GED teaching career).

1. I want to get my GED. What is the first step?
2. How can I best prepare?
3. Where can I find out more information?
4. What does it cost?
5. How old must I be, before I can start?
6. What are the different subjects that I will be tested in? What is in each portion of the GED test?
7. Do I need to know advanced math to pass the math portion?
8. My state has an HSED and a GED. Which is better?
9. I failed the GED test. Now what?
10. I was diagnosed with a learning disability in high school. Can I get accommodations?

So follow along, and if you would like to add anything along the way...... I encourage your comments!
