GED Classes Eureka, California

This page includes an overview of all GED® prep facilities and testing sites in the Eureka region.

California is using multiple options for high school equivalency (HSE) testing, the GED, TASC, and HiSET.

HSE testing gives adults who haven’t finished high school another shot at acquiring an equivalent diploma.

The HiSET and TASC are offered both on a computer and on paper whereas the GED is fully computerized.

All three HSE exams assess fundamental knowledge at a level that may be expected of graduating high school students.

The GED exam includes four separate subtests in the subject fields of Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math.

You are given two years to finish the entire GED battery. This does not apply to TASC and HiSET testing!

The TASC and the HiSET have five subtests as here, the section Literacy is split up into a writing and a reading test.

How to prepare for the GED fast

GED passing score

The GED passing score was adjusted to 145 (down from 150) in January 2016. It appeared that the standard was set at a too high level when compared with what high school seniors must command upon graduation. TASC and HiSET have five subtests that are scored in their own ways. So the GED passing score on each subtest is 145 out of 200 points, and you have two years to pass all four GED subject tests. This does not apply to HiSET and TASC.

No online HSE testing

The GED exam is done entirely on a computer, but bear in mind that test-taking is done at official testing centers. The GED, HiSET, and TASC exams are NOT available over the internet. Websites with different information are false.

GED alternatives

Now California also offers two other HSE (high school equivalency) testing possibilities, the testing models TASC (developed by CTB/McGraw-Hill), and the HiSET exam (by Educational Testing Service). These alternatives are less expensive than the GED examination, and come not only in a computer-based format (as the new GED ), but are also still available on paper. The new GED exam is no longer offered on paper, and this could be challenging for older students who are not used to testing on a computer.

Quite a few states have also introduced these alternatives and some have said goodbye to the GED exam (now developed by giant for-profit publisher Pearson-VUE). The TASC and HiSET come with five separate tests (literacy includes two separate tests on writing and reading), and testing centers have the freedom to decide on which of the high school equivalency exams (or all three) they are using, so please contact a testing near you for specifics.

Online Registration

To register for the GED tests, you must go to GED.com and create your account at MyGED. Here you will find a wealth of information about every possible aspect of the GED exam, as well as job opportunities and school profiles. You will need a current email address and also a credit or debit card. If this is a problem, contact a testing site near you for a pre-paid voucher.

GED.com/MyGED is the place to register for and schedule your tests, and a great aspect of the new GED exam is that you can take (and pay for) one (or more) of the four tests (modules) at the moment you feel comfortable enough to do so. Test scores count for up to two years.

Would you like to become a Doctor?

In America, quite a few doctors started their career after earning their GED. This diploma opens the door to a fine college education and for bright minds who passed the GED with perfect scores, medical school might be an option. There are many scholarships available to qualifying bright students.

Summary of How To Become A Doctor:

  1. If you want to become a doctor, you have to attend a medical school.
  2. Medical school is a four-year process in which the medical student takes 1.5 to 2 years of basic science courses, then another two years of clinical coursework.
  3. Entrance into medical school is tough. Applicants are required to have graduated from college and have taken several courses in the sciences, including physics, chemistry, and biology.
  4. Average Annual Salary of a Doctor is: $175,550
  5. Expected Lifetime Earnings: $6,060,000

The term “doctor” applies to many specialists, they may be gynecologists, obstetricians, ER doctors, psychiatrists, pediatricians, neurologists, dermatologists, cardiologists, primary care providers, or cardiologists. All these healthcare professionals are, in one word, physicians.

Doctors – Education

Educational Requirements – Good grades are necessary for applicants to gain interviews. In fact, applicants with GPA’s below 3.0 are likely not to gain entrance into medical school. Research is increasingly becoming an “optional” requirement due to the number of applicants with research listed on their resume. Extracurricular activities and unique experiences are also encouraged and can help score an admission.

Last, applicants must take the MCAT, a standardized test like the SAT or ACT, but testing college-level science courses and reading comprehension instead. Applicants that warrant admission are given an interview, and the final admissions decision is based on the interview.

Medical students that make it through the four grueling years of school have to then match into a residency. There are many fields for students to pursue, from internal medicine and pediatrics to surgery and ophthalmology. Specialized and surgical residencies are harder to secure due to intense competition. Primary care residencies such as family medicine, internal medicine, psychiatry, and pediatrics are more plentiful and much less competitive. Currently, there is a drive to recruit more primary care physicians due to stronger demand and the need for primary care physicians across the country.

Some sort of clinical experience is necessary as well to show that applicants have immersed themselves in the medical fields and know exactly what they are getting themselves into.

Research and community service is not necessary during medical school but is highly recommended to get the most out of their education. Standardized tests are also required during medical school. In fact, part of the graduation requirements of medical school is passing several standardized tests.

M.D.s and D.O.s

We can divide these healthcare professionals into two main types, M.D.s (Medical Doctors) and D.O.s (Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine). Both doctors are diagnosing and treating patients for a wide variety of medical issues, but D.O.s may additionally specialize in holistic patient care and preventive medicine. Within these two main categories, we can see numerous specialties. Doctors may be working in the fields of immunology, radiology, plastic surgery, pediatric or geriatric healthcare, urology, or allergy to mention just a few specializations.

During the past decades, we have witnessed tremendous technological advancements and improvements in the sector of medicine. There has been a huge improvement in patient care, but today, physicians face also huge challenges. We see more and more non-medical individuals intruding into all sorts of physician’s settings, and legislators are making all sorts of laws, and more frequently lawyers are threatening medical liability.

Doctors are the professionals we will call when we get the flu, when we have a broken arm, or when the contractions start coming every few minutes. We call doctors to make an appointment when we see irregular freckles, and we visit them when we cough too much, when we have a cold, when daddy’s heart needs to work too hard, and when we suspect our mom to lose her memory.
