This is an overview of GED prep locations and testing facilities in the Auburn, California, region. California is using the fully computer-formatted GED exam for its high school equivalency testing program.
The state additionally welcomed the HiSET exam for this purpose which is both on-computer and on-paper.
Both the GED® and HiSET® exams can be taken online or at a California official testing facility. More details are below.
The exams give persons who quit high school without graduating the possibility to obtain an equivalent credential.
The GED (General Education Development) exam includes four subtests in the fields of Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
HiSET testing involves five individual subtests since the Literacy part is split up into separate English Writing and English Reading tests.
Both exams offer the option to take one subtest at a time.

Practically all higher education schools, licensing boards, and armed forces branches accept the diploma that’s awarded upon successful completion of the GED and HiSET exams as they accept a high school diploma.
Online GED, HiSET Testing
The GED and HiSET exams are now also available over the Internet. In the past, to earn your HSE diploma, you had to appear at a state-licensed testing center. Now, that has changed with the introduction of the online proctored GED and HiSET exams.
Until recently, we could find more than four million job positions that cannot be filled in the U.S., and this fact is mainly caused by a shortfall of available and rightly qualified applicants.
All these jobs require you to be a holder of a high school degree. Remarkably enough, we see around 40 million individuals who – for some reason – did not complete high school.
If only one in ten of these people would get their GED certificate, the whole problem would be non-exist, and the economy would be functioning as it should. The shortcoming of enough qualified workers affects our economy as a whole tremendously.
By acquiring the GED diploma, you boost your options to get a well-paying job, you will find enough available, but you will need to have a secondary education degree.
