This post includes an overview of all GED® prep classes and testing centers in the Roseville area.
California is using the computer-based GED exam for its high school equivalency testing program.
California also decided to offer the HiSET and TASC exams for this purpose which are offered both on-computer and on-paper.
The California HSE program offers adults who didn’t complete high school the chance to acquire an equivalent credential.
There are four separate GED subtests (modules) in Mathematical Reasoning, Reasoning Through Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies.
On the TASC and HiSET, the Language sections have separate reading and writing tests, so five in total.

What is the GED ?
The General Educational Development exam, commonly referred to as the GED, is a standardized exam distributed throughout the U.S. It is the purpose of the exam, like the TASC and HiSET, to help individuals who did not graduate high school. The GED exam allows these adults to acquire the needed credentials to further their education or advance in the working world.
Lowered GED passing score
Information about the reduced GED passing score is found in this GED New Passing Score article. The minimally required score on each of the four GED subtests went down from 150 to 145 in March 2016. It was demonstrated that it was set too high when the latest GED test version was rolled out across the US in 2014. If you want to see if you’re eligible for the GED, TASC, or HiSET track, go to GED testing in California.
The GED exam – what is new
In January 2014, a completely new edition of the GED program was introduced. Students who had passed one or more of the former GED tests (referred to as the 2002 GED Series) but not all five, were unlucky as their results were no longer valid. They had to start all over again.
The new GED exam has four testing sections (modules): Reasoning through Language Arts (155 minutes including a 10 minute break, and a 45 minute essay); Mathematical Reasoning (115 minutes, this part includes an on-screen calculator – hand-held calculators are not permitted); Science (90 minutes, including a few short answer items); and Social Studies (70 minutes).
In California, the four-test GED exam costs $140 ($35 per individual test). Testing is done on a computer and you have the freedom to prepare for and take one of the four tests (modules) at a time. Your scores will stand for two years from the moment of your first registration. HiSET and TASC are slightly cheaper.
