Course Description

This online course will prepare you to take the GED (General Educational Development) test. The testing format will be explained and broken down to highlight the current four testing areas along with the content each of these sections will cover.
 

This course will provide many resources from test tips and strategies, exercises, assignments, practice tests and researched netlinks attached to many test topics to be read at your own leisure.

The GED test covers a wealth of information within the four-test sections. These test sections include Reasoning through the Language Arts,Social Studies, Science Studies, and Mathematical Reasoning. You will not need to know all of the information in these areas to pass the GED, but you will need to know and understand several of the main topics in each area. This course provides a brief summary and numerous practice resources to use for each of these main topics.

This course is a preparation course only. You cannot take the GED® test online. UniversalClass does not administer state-sanctioned GED® tests.

We recommend the following steps to pass the official, state-administered, GED® test:

  1. Enroll in a GED® Preparation course (such as this one)
  2. Purchase all recommended GED® Preparation books and materials
  3. Study all course materials
  4. Take all practice tests in the course and book materials
  5. After you have mastered all material and passed all tests, you must sign up for the state-administered GED® test
  6. Take the GED® test in person approved by both your state and the American Council on Education with a proctor
  7. If you pass the state-administered GED® test, the state will issue you a high school equivalency diploma
