These practice tests are part of our high school equivalency online test prep. Taking practice tests is very important because they indicate what your knowledge gaps are.

It’s important that you know what your weak points are so you can focus on learning those topics the require most of your study time.

Recent graduates have some good advice for you: don’t try to learn for all of the subject tests at once.

You are allowed to take the subtests one at a time. So prepare for one subject area, take that test, and move on to the next subject field.

When preparing for the test, the most common slipup is forgetting to block some time for learning.

Postponement and pretexts are your biggest enemies. Please adopt a learning schedule and stick to it.

The second common mistake that leads to failing the test is the fact that students spend too much time on one question and end up not making it through the whole test.

Time management is one of the biggest stumbling blocks to passing the high school equivalency test. The best way of tackling this issue is by taking multiple practice tests and boost your time management skills.
