These practice tests are part of our GED online prep program, click here to read how it works. These practice tests are meant to discover at which areas you are weak or strong. You don’t need to study for all four tests at once, the GED allows you to take one test at a time within two years. The real TASC, HiSET, or GED test may be more difficult than this practice test, so you may very well take one more of these practices tests to improve your chances.
