How to Prepare for the GED(R) Test: All New Content for the Computerized 2014 Exam Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 2014 GED exam has been revised extensively to reflect the world we live in today. The most noticeable change is that the test is now computer based--a transition that requires test-takers to have strong typing and computer skills. The new exam covers additional topics in the Math and Science sections and includes "blended" subject matter within the sections, meaning test-takers will see science questions that require math to produce a numerical answer or social studies questions that require essay-writing skills and so forth. Test-takers will also find all question types used on the new computer format.

With such comprehensive changes in store for test-takers, it is fitting for Barron's to offer a book based on the 2014 exam. The new How to Prepare for the GED® Test offers test-takers a guided approach to taking and passing the exam by building on the skills they already have. Test-takers will benefit from the book's extensive subject reviews that cover all four of the new test sections:

  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • Reasoning through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning

    The book also includes diagnostic tests and two full-length practice exams with all questions answered and explained.

  • Synopsis:

    CliffsNotes HiSET Cram Plan provides calendarized test prep for the HiSET, which is a high school equivalency test similar to the GED and used in a growing number of states.

    Synopsis:

    CliffsNotes HiSET Cram Plan is a calendarized test-prep product geared to the HiSET, a high school equivalency exam similar to the GED.

    The CliffsNotes Cram Plan series is a test-prep series that includes 2-month, 1-month, and 1-week study plans so that test-takers can better gauge their time constraints when prepping for a standardized test. The HiSET Cram Plan includes:

    • Diagnostic tests for each subject area on the exam: Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Math, Science, and Social Studies

    • Subject review chapters for each test subject, including practice problems

    • Model full-length practice tests for each HiSET subject

    • Includes special "Tips" that are geared to ESL/ELL test-takers

    A growing number of states have adopted the HiSET, with the number of adopting states expected to increase: California, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Wyoming.

    The HiSET is administered both as a computer-based and a paper-based test, meaning that it can be taken year-round.
