GED Test Prep Tips

Taking several practice tests is important. They will make clear where your knowledge gaps are. And knowing where your knowledge and skills gaps are is important because that allows you to focus on those topics that require your attention most.

Some recent GED graduates cam up with some good advice: don’t prepare for the GED battery all at once.

You are allowed to sit for the four GED tests one at a time, so you can prepare for one subject test till you’re all set. Take and pass that test, after which you can go on to the next subject test.

When getting all set for the GED exam, for many students a very common slipup is that they forget to block time for studying.

Postponement and coming up with pretexts are actually your worst enemies. When you’ve adopted a learning schedule that suits you, just stick to it!

A second major but common mistake that leads to not passing the GED test is that too many students spend too much time on just one question.
