Maryland uses the GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.
The HSE program gives adults who haven’t completed high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The test of General Education Development (GED) has four separate subtests in Science, Literacy, Math, and Social Studies.
You are allowed two years to complete the entire GED battery.
There is no paper-based GED testing, everything must be done on a computer.
Should we maybe update anything? Is a prep facility not included? We appreciate contributions. We welcome you to inform us on this contact page. Thanks.

Is the GED available online?
No. There is no online GED exam or diploma. Websites that claim something else are false. You are required to go to a state-approved GED testing center and sit for the GED tests in person. Forget about websites that want to make you believe something else. There is no online possibility to take the GED test and the documents that these robbers issue are without any value. An online prep course may be a great option, though, for many students.
GED and the economy
Nowadays, a high school diploma (or equivalency) is the minimum education that you will be needing for just about every sort of job, and you will need it too if you want to get a college education. After completion of the four subtests, you will receive the Maryland High School Diploma, and the exam is available in English, Spanish and French, though the section Language Writing must be done in English.
Paying for college – is passive income real?
The GED diploma will get you into college but how to get all that financed without having a student loan? Maybe running your own online business will work but watch out for loopholes and other bad practices. Passive income is still one of the buzzwords that gurus use to lure you into their trap. They talk about funneling people into their sales pages in the same way that duck hunters used trapped calling ducks to lure wild ducks into a narrowing funnel.
Gurus have taken a simple concept that everyone desires. They pretend that the only way you can reach the elusive dream of passive income is to buy their products.
Passive income streams are available to everyone free. Never pay anyone for an idea. Ideas are free. Forget gurus. Forget making money online cons and pyramid marketing scams. Passive income means work. It means repeatedly earning from the same work. It means letting your work earn for you 24/7 while you sleep.
Did you notice the W word? There is no getting away from the 4 letter W word. Any guru who claims otherwise is lying.
Article writing is the one form of Working for passive income, blogging is another. You can outsource the work, but you still have to Work, organizing your freelancers and writing blog posts. You can outsource some of the work, but there is still Work that you have to do.
Build Your Reputation Online
In the early days of your online writing, you need to be building up your reputation. I started writing seriously a few years back and I spent a lot of time on forums helping others and asking questions myself. I earned the reputation of being a hard-working and honest guy.
Reputation is very important to you. Online it comes before First Impressions. My belief is that money is only one of five currencies. The other four are Reputation, Knowledge, Contacts, and Time. Of the 5, Time is the most important, because it is inherently limited. The logic is that we all spend Time and build our reserves of the other 4 currencies. Guard your reputation carefully. One foolish act can undo years of hard work.
