Question 15 of 15

Practice tests are important.

Take another test.
Continue learning.

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

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

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

When preparing for the GED test, the most common mistake is to forget to block your time for learning.

Time management is one of the biggest stumbling blocks to passing the GED test.

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

These practice tests might give you an idea about which subject(s) you will need to concentrate on most to be successful at the real GED tests.

The real GED exam may be harder than these tests so take one more GED \TASC\HiSET practice test to boost your score.
