Tips for writing a good GED essay

Who can take the GED exam

The GED (General Education Development) exam is developed for adults who never completed high school. The diploma or certificate that you will get after completing the Oregon GED test is regarded and accepted as an equivalency to a regular high school diploma by government agencies, employers and universities all across the U.S.

Remember that the GED exam must be taken at an official testing site and that it is NOT available online. Internet sites that radiate something different are fraud! Online preparatory courses are fine, though, so check out the free online video GED program that’s available on this website!
