In this post, you can learn all about GED® prep facilities and testing sites in the Kenosha area.
The state of Wisconsin uses the computer-based GED test for HSE (high school equivalency) testing.
The GED is for individuals without a high school diploma. This way they can secure a credential that’s equivalent to a regular HS diploma.
The GED comes with four independent subtests that can be taken (and paid for) separately within a 2-year time frame.
These subtests, or modules, cover the academic fields of Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math.
The GED test is not offered online. You are required to show up at one of Wisconsin’s official test centers in person.

A brighter future
The GED diploma will definitely result in better career options and is your ticket to schools of higher education. See also this post that links to all U.S. GED programs. In early 2016, the GED passing score for each of the four tests was lowered five points to 145. For more details, see this GED news page.
For more detailed information about the GED program (for example the best prep options, qualification requirements, new scoring system, where and how to register for the test, the four testing fields, and a lot more), go to GED testing in Wisconsin.
Personal appearance is required
Online GED testing is NOT possible. You must show up at a state-designated GED testing site in person. Websites with different information are fraudulent. Documents obtained online are totally worthless and will not be accepted by employers and school!
Students loans and debt snowflaking
Your Wisconsin GED diploma will surely result in much better employment opportunities and make you qualified for a fine college or university education. But how to stay away from a massive student debt burden that will haunt you all through your career? Now, you may have heard of debt snowballing: First, figure out the maximum amount you can pay toward debt each month.
Second, add all the minimum payments on your debt together and subtract from your maximum affordable payment. Third, determine which debt needs to be paid first, second, third, and so on. Finally, pay the minimum amounts on all your debts each month and the extra toward only one debt at a time.
Debt snowflaking is almost the same concept except from the income side. Every extra dollar you find or earn throughout the month is immediately paid toward the top debt. By paying even a few dollars out right away, you avoid the trap of saving the money up until the end of the month and probably spending it on something else.
So, you attack the debt snowball with multiple income snowflakes. Learn how to compare part-time pay to weekly or monthly earnings with this paycheck calculator.
Where to Find Those Extra Snowflakes
No amount of extra income is too small. Sell your spare couch on Craigslist for $75, recycle that aluminum cluttering your garage for $10, and return that too-small sweater for $65. Transfer the extra $150 immediately to your top debt. Take small actions like this as often as possible during the month and you can make several hundred dollars “magically” appear.
A yard sale generates tons of snowflakes. Getting your cousin to repay that small loan from five years ago produces even more. Work an hour of overtime, babysit the neighbor’s kids, rake an elderly friend’s lawn—even $5 here and there adds up in a short time.
The key to snowflaking your debt away is to pay the extra out right away—the same day, if possible. Check with your creditors to make sure multiple small payments are allowed; you may need to drop larger amounts once a week instead. Do your best not to stockpile because if the TV suddenly breaks and you have money in savings, guess where that money will go? Not toward your debt, if you’re like most people. So, keep making those small payments, even if they’re just a few dollars at a time. Your top balances will fall faster and you may save on interest and other fees.
History of the Snowball Debt Reduction Method
Dave Ramsey invented the snowball method (paying larger amounts on one debt at a time until they’re all knocked out). Though there’s some disagreement about how to order your debts most efficiently, Dave Ramsey suggests starting with the smallest one and forging ahead from there.
Combine the snowball effect with the snowflake effect and you have a powerhouse combination toward becoming completely debt-free. The extra snowflakes vary from month to month, but every little bit counts.
And Once Your Debt Is Snowflaked Away…
The true beauty of the snowflaking technique is that it doesn’t have to stop when your debt is paid. Put these magical extra dollars away in a savings account (along with your snowball money, if you like) and build a cushion for your family. Once you’re comfortable, invest your free money. Through smart and simple lifestyle changes like this, you can achieve what you once thought impossible: a debt-free life with a good start on savings!
