This article includes a listing of all GED® prep sites and test centers in the Newark, New Jersey area. New Jersey uses multiple options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the TASC™, HiSET®, and GED exams.
HiSET and GED testing is available online and at certified testing facilities.
HSE testing provides people who did not graduate from high school with the chance to obtain an equivalent credential.
The GED exam has four individual subtests in English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
You don’t need to complete the four GED modules (subtests) in one take. You can deal with them one at a time.
The TASC and HiSET tests have five tests (that can also be taken individually) as their literacy sections include separate writing and reading tests.
In New Jersey, all three options must be taken on a computer. Here we list all options in the Newark area.
In the past, online HSE testing was no option. Recently, that has changed, however. Check below for information on the newly introduced online HiSET and GED test-taking options.
