This course will provide several resources from strategies, review of material, test taking tips, practice exercises and tests.
Topics covered:
Arithmetic (different forms of numbers, signs and symbols, how to perform various operations, how to solve problems with Fractions, Percents and Decimals, and much more)
Algebra (linear Equations and Inequalities, how to solve various word problems, how to simplify and factor numbers, and much more)
Statistics (Data Analysis, Probability, Measures of Central Tendency, charts/tables/schedules, graphs, circle/bar/line graphs)
Geometry (Geometric Concepts and Relationships, understanding measurements of congruence and similarity, the Pythagorean Theorem, and much more)
You cannot take the GED® test online. UniversalClass does not administer statesanctioned GED® tests.
We recommend the following steps to pass the official, stateadministered, GED® test:
 Enroll in a GED® Preparation course

Student Testimonials
 "All of it was very helpful. It gave me the knowledge and confidence necessary for this section of the GED which, beforehand, I was very worried about. What was most helpful were the sections that most expanded on what I learned in school, particularly algebra, geometry and trigonometry."  Kaleb H.
