The most effective way to be certain that you will successfully complete the GED exam is to be well prepared. Here you can find a huge lot of information about preparation, regulations and a lot of other useful resources such as free practice tests to help you pass the HSE (High School Equivalency) test.
The new GED exam is entirely computer-formatted and reflects the needs and requirements of industry and higher education in a more appropriate way. Not every state has continued to use the GED test for its High School Equivalency testing. Some switched to the TASC or HiSET alternatives which are available both on paper and on a computer in most states. More and more states are offering all three options for the purpose of high school equivalency testing.
The New GED® Test
The 2014 edition of the GED exam is really more than only a set of four tests. The new GED program is highly flexible and interactive. You can take the exam in English and Spanish, and you must sit for the exam at an official GED testing center. The GED exam includes four subtest or modules in Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts, Science, Math (Mathematical Reasoning), and Social Studies.
The new GED exam was developed from the ground up. The program focuses more on the skills and knowledge needed in modern workplaces and colleges: critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. But there are more benefits: the GED® test is now aligned with national and State College- and Career-Readiness Standards, you can see you scores on the same day as testing, and the GED test has become much more flexible.
You now can take one (or more) of the four subtests at a time within a two-year time frame. So you have the freedom to prepare for one section, pass that module and move ahead to the next part.
