In this article, you can discover all GED® and HiSET® prep facilities and test centers in the Sandy Springs area. Georgia uses two options for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program, the GED and HiSET exams.
The GED can be taken only in a computerized format whereas the HiSET exam can be taken on a computer and on paper.
GED and HiSET testing is possible both in an online format and at certified HSE test centers.
The HSE program gives adults who never finished high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
The entirely computer-based GED exam has four independent subject tests in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
HiSET testing comes with five subtests since there are separate reading and writing subtests.
You have the option to complete the four GED or five HiSET subject tests one at a time and both exams are available in English and Spanish.
Both the GED and HiSET exam assesses skills and knowledge at that level that compares to that of high school graduates.
In the past, online GED or HiSET testing was no option. You needed to show up at an official HSE testing site, but that has now changed with the arrival of online, proctored GED and HiSET tests. Read more below.

Introducing an online GED testing option
Until recently, taking the GED or HiSET test online was not possible. It was simply not offered over the internet. To acquire a Georgia HSE diploma, your personal appearance at an official test center was required.
But that has changed with the introduction of the online proctored (OP) GED and HiSET exams. If you take the online GED or HiSET exam, you will be guided by an online proctor who checks if all happens according to strict regulations.
The four GED tests
The GED exam for high school equivalency testing consists of 4 separate tests that you are allowed to take one at a time, whenever you feel ready for that part, and you can only register for and pay for that part $40 per test – $160 for the entire battery). The four GED tests are on the subject areas of:
Literacy – 150 minutes (including a short break)
Math – 115 minutes
Science – 90 minutes
Social Studies – 70 minutes
The five HiSET subtests cost $26.75 each when you take them at a test center. If you take the HiSET subtests online, the five tests will cost you $36.25 each.
When you successfully pass all four GED or five HiSET tests you will be awarded the Georgia HSE diploma which is accepted all across America just like a regular high school diploma by local and federal government institutions, colleges and universities, and employers.
Preparation is the key to success for passing the GED or HiSET exam. Contact one of the facilities listed above if you want to attend classes that are mostly offered at no charge at all, including all study materials.
