GED and Reading Skills

Taking the GED requires adequate reading skills. You need the reading skills to comprehend and analyze what you read to help you find the answer.

This is not always easy! If you find that you lack the necessary reading skills, you will want to do something about it.

First, start reading and stop watching tv! Try this. For every 10 minutes of tv you watch, read at least 5 minutes. If you are like many people, you watch about 3-4 hours a day. Pick up a book instead of a remote!

Second, find a good tutor. Check out the Literacy Council in your area. Many times they will work with you one on one.

Third, take a reading class. Check out your technical college. They may have reading refresher courses or a learning center where a qualified teacher can help.

Every GED test will have reading.... so you want to brush up your skills!

Good luck!
