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.
