GED Test Prep Tips

These practice test questions are part of our GED Social Studies online prep. Taking multiple practice tests is important as this way, you’ll get a good idea about your knowledge gaps.

Recent GED test-takers have some very good advice for you: please don’t try to get prepared for the entire GED batter at once.

You can take one of the four GED modules when you’re ready to do so. Prepare for one subject test, take and pass that section, and then continue with the next subject test.

For many GED hopefuls, when preparing for the exam, the most common slipup is that they forget to block time for studying.

Postponement and making excuses are among your worst enemies. Adopt a learning schedule that fits you and simply stick to it.

The second very common mistake that leads to failing the GED exam is the fact that too many students spend too much time on just one question and then end up not making it all the way through the exam.
