GED Classes Auburn, California

This is an overview of GED® preparatory class locations and testing facilities in the Auburn, California, region.

California also offers two alternative high school equivalency (HSE) tests, the TASC and HiSET. All three options provide persons who quit high school without graduating with the possibility to obtain a diploma that is accepted like a high school degree. The entire GED test will require around 7 ½ hours to deal with but on the new GED, you can take one of the subtests (modules) at a time within a 2-year period of time. The TASC and HiSET exams are not modular.

Four GED subtests

The GED (General Education Development) exam includes four subtests in the fields of Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts), Math (Mathematical Reasoning), Science, and Social Studies. HiSET and TASC have five tests since the Literacy part is split up in separate English Writing and English Reading tests.

GED cost

In California, the GED exam will set you back $140 ($35 per subtest) and the exam is taken completely computerized. The alternatives HiSET and TASC are offered on paper and on a computer and cost less than the GED. Practically all higher education schools, licensing boards, and armed forces branches accept the GED, TASC, or HiSET like they accept a high school diploma. You need to contact your testing center to find out which exam(s) they administer.

The GED – how it started

The GED  program (General Education Development) was introduced by the US War Department during the 1940’s mainly to assist military employees with extra education and improved employment opportunities. The program helps individuals without a high school diploma improve their skills and offers them the opportunity to access college.

Online GED testing?

The GED tests are NOT available over the internet. Online studying is okay, and a perfect solution for busy workers or folks in remote locations, but if you want to get your GED diploma, you will have to appear at a state-licensed testing center. Internet sites that spread different information are fraud, and their documents worthless.

A brighter future

In the US there are millions of men and women who don’t possess a high school diploma, and successfully completing the GED exam will lead to improved work opportunities, open up doors to universities, and make it possible to build a better future. The GED test is not available online. If a website offers the GED test via the internet, the site is false. You can only take the examination when you go to a designated Florida test center.

GED and the economy

Right now we can find more than four million job positions that cannot be being 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 are the 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.
