GED® Test Preparation
with CEU Certificate*
Course DescriptionThis 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.
