GED Test Prep Tips

Taking practice tests is very important because they indicate what your knowledge gaps are. Studies have shown that students who take practice tests frequently score higher on the actual test.

It’s important that you know what your weak points are so you can focus on learning these topics.

Recent graduates have some good advice for you: don’t try to learn for all subtests at once.

You are allowed to take the subject tests one at a time, so prepare for one subject area, take that test, and move on to the next subject field.

When preparing for the test, the most common slipup is forgetting to block some time for learning.

Postponement and pretexts are your biggest enemies. Please adopt a learning schedule and stick to it.

The second common mistake that leads to failing the real test is the fact that students spend too much time on one question and end up not making it through the whole test.
