Preparation for the GED tests is the key to success. If you recently dropped out of the 11th or 12th grade, you may be able to take the tests without a study course. However, if you dropped out longer than a year ago or did not go to 11th or 12th grade, a GED study course may be necessary. Teachers and tutors in these courses can help you figure out how much you need to study to pass the GED tests.
There are several ways to prepare you to take the GED tests. You can:
1. Sign up for a GED preparation course at a local school or training center.
2. Study at home with a GED prep book. There are several good books on the market that include practice tests. Some of the better books are:
3. Take an online GED course. There are several courses available on the Internet that can help you prepare for the GED. You usually have to pay to take one of these courses but there are also some free courses online. One of the better GED course sites can be found at GEDOnline ($65 for a 4-month membership).
4. Study at home while watching TV. Many local public television stations offer free GED courses that you can watch on TV. Check your local listings or you can call (800) 354-9067 (toll-free) for more information.
