GED Test Prep Tips

Taking several practice tests is important because they will indicate what your knowledge and skills gaps are.

It’s important to learn about your weaker points so you can center on studying those areas.

Recent GED test-takers have some pretty good advice for you: just don’t try to get prepared for all GED subtests at once.

You have the liberty to sit for the GED subtests one at a time. So get optimally prepared for one subject test, pass that portion, and move on to get all set for the next subject field.

When students prepare for the GED exam, one of the most common slipups is not blocking time for learning.

Postponement and pretexts are some of your worst enemies. Set up a learning schedule and you better stick to it!

A second very common mistake that leads to not passing the GED test is that so many students will spend way too much of their precious time on just one question so that they won’t be able to make it through the whole test.
