This is a full listing of GED® preparation locations and testing sites in the Denton region.
Texas welcomed the entirely computer-formatted GED exam for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.
Additionally, the state embraced the TASC and HiSET exams which are offered on-paper and on-computer.
HSE testing gives adults who left high school without a diploma another shot at obtaining an equivalent degree.
The GED exam comes with four independent tests in Mathematical Reasoning, Science, Reasoning through Language Arts, and Social Studies.
These four GED modules must be completed within a time frame of two years.
The HiSET and TASC have five subtests (Literacy has individual writing and reading tests) that can’t be taken separately.

HSE exam preparation
Probably the best way to get all set for the HSE exam is attending classes at one of the above-listed locations, and there will also be HSE study material available at most local libraries and bookstores, as well as online (see these free video lessons). Most preparation books have practice tests that will help you determine when you are ready to test (and this website also free HSE practice tests). For qualification criteria visit GED Testing Criteria in Texas.
There is also very helpful information available at GED.com including ‘GED Ready’ Practice Tests. Recently, the General Education Development program was totally revamped, and now the GED exam is again line with college requirements and industry expectations. Online GED testing is not possible. Websites that have a different message are fraudulent!
Over the past years, the GED (General Education Development) exam has changed to an entirely computer-based format, and one of the best changes is that you can take one test at a time. This gives you the chance to prepare for just one of the four subject areas and take that test. You have two years to complete the entire battery, so no need to rush. Your scores are instantly available (except for the essay part). No longer do you have to wait in anxiety for weeks.
Registration, scheduling your tests, payments, everything now needs to be done online. The new GED exam really prepares you better for the modern job market and prepares you far better to be successful at university or college. The new computer-based GED exam is not only more environmentally friendly (saving on paper), there are more advantages.
Registration became much easier via the Internet, though test-takers still need to appear in person at one of the Texas official testing centers. At first, there were major concerns that some adults would experience trouble with the exam as older students typically are not as familiar with working with a computer as younger ones. Recent results, however, have shown that computer-based testing is no problem for older applicants.
The Texas HSE exam costs $135. For details about the lowered GED passing score (to 145), check out this interesting page. Online HiSET, TASC, or GED testing can NOT be done online. You must appear at a state-designated test center. See also this page that has links to all US GED prep facilities and testing sites.
The HSE diploma and your future
Obtaining your HSE (high school equivalency) diploma is really one of the best decisions adults can make. It doesn’t matter why you did not finish high school, the HSE program offers you the best ‘second chance’ to obtain academic or career-targeted training. This will not only help you, but our economy as a whole too. In America, you can find currently over 4 million vacant jobs of which the major part requires a completed secondary education (HS or GED diploma). Be wise and don’t put off your better future any longer.
*) Region 10 Adult Education
Region 10’s Adult Education and Literacy program offers HSE classes at the Carrollton Learning Complex (CLC) in Carrollton, Texas. HSE classes prepare applicants to successfully take the four independent tests of the GED exam or the five tests of the TASC or HiSET exam. Upon successful completion, students will receive the state-issued HSE diploma, a credential that equals a high school diploma.
In Texas, the price ticket for the HSE (high school equivalency) exam is $135.00 ($33.75 per module). You can take each GED test separately when you are sufficiently prepared and you then only pay for that part. There are 4 tests (modules): Mathematics, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies. GED completion is required within two years. This does NOT count for the HiSET and TASC exams.
The GED exam must be done on a computer and thanks to this digital delivery, scores will be available within 24 hours. Test-takers can view their results immediately at their GED account that they need to install anyway to register and schedule their tests with the website of GED Testing Service, GED.com.
The HSE examination can be taken in English and in Spanish. To get more information, or to register for this great opportunity to get an education in order to get a better paying job or continue your education in college, please contact the school at 972-968-6520.
How to Become a Professional Barber
Maybe you would like to become a barber after completing your GED. Let’s look at some facts and requirements.
- Average Annual Salary: $35,090
- Expected Lifetime Earnings: $1,292,000
Barber – Education
In order to become a barber, you need to receive training from a barber school. Each state requires a different amount of study of hours in order to qualify for the state barber exam. Please check with the state you wish to start your practice in for specific hours. Once you have passed the necessary state certification test you will receive your Barber license in the mail shortly after, thus allowing you to
Once you have passed the necessary state certification test you will receive your Barber license in the mail shortly after, thus allowing you to start your barbering practice.
Is Barber School Required?
To put it simply…yes! Traditionally you will need to receive around 1500 hours of study/training time to qualify for your state license test. Schooling will also give you the hands-on training needed to be a successful barber. You will learn from professionals the hands-free techniques that most customers desire. These techniques will help separate you from amateurs who use hair clipper guards. When researching schools make sure the school is licensed by the appropriate regulatory agency.
Barber – The Job
Barbers cut, shape, trim, and taper hair. Barbers first must complete their high school education or have a GED diploma and to become a barber, you will need to have at least a few years of experience in cutting hair. Barbers, in general, need to be licensed and continue to improve their knowledge of common concepts and practices. Most barbers work under direct supervision and report to a manager or supervisor, but there also barbers that run their own small business.
Barbers not only perform haircuts but, they also provide hair styling or other services to their customers. The expression “barber” is in general only used for a small portion of those male hair stylists that are working on men’s shaving, hair cutting, and styling, or similar activities.
Barbers are usually very customer-orientated individuals who take also pleasure interacting with their clients while at the same time performing their professional tasks. It is common practice that many clients are returning clients of barbershops, and top barbers generally turn their facilities into a sort of meeting place where conversation plays an important role.
Generally speaking are barbers draping and pinning cloths around their customers’ clothes. They must work with clean and sterilized scissors, clippers, and combs, and they will cut and trim many types of hair in accordance with their clients’ wishes, instructions, and desired or preferred hairstyle. Barbers are required to keep their workstations clean work and make sure their floors are properly swept.
In the United States, the 2016 median compensation for barbers was a little over $35,000 per year, but the level of experience and regional circumstances may impact heavily on these figures. In this profession, job satisfaction is very high for the vast majority of barbers.
