Book looks new and very cheap.

For that purpose it is a very good resource, and I highly recommend this book not only as a tool for GED preparation but also for comprehension and English vocabulary.

I use this book as a volunteer for my local Literacy Council. My student is a Burmese woman who learned English after coming to the U.S. two years ago. Our local community college gave her the book as a way to increase her understanding of, and fluency in, English writing and grammar. I like this book's exercises and sample tests, which we use for reading comprehension and vocabulary. For that purpose it is a very good resource, and I highly recommend this book not only as a tool for GED preparation but also for comprehension and English vocabulary.

I used this book as well as the corresponding books for the other GED subjects and was able to pass the GED with perfect and near perfect scores. My GED instructor even commented on the fact that I was done with each test within a fraction of the time allotted for each test.

There is way more info in these books than you actually need to know for the test. If you can master what is in these books you will pass the GED on the first try with no problems.

I was a tutor in an Oregon prison. We used these books with an amazing amount of success. Many of our students lacked even the most basic math skills and were used to giving up when things became too difficult, these books enabled them to not only succeed and pass their tests, but in many cases, with scores that placed them in "Honors" distinction.

This is the book series you want to use to study. I teach in a GED program. Steck Vaughn wrote the test we currently give until 2014. It pays to use this book if only to get familiar with the format of how the questions are asked and what the tester, Steck Vaughn, is looking for in an answer. We have these five books and this will be for my personal use, mainly at home, where I often spend time on lesson plans. I teach reading, language, and math the most. Contemporary has a good beginning math series, especially Power 1 and 2, but eventually you need to get to math level that is expected when you learn from Steck Vaughn books. We always begin in the reading book; because, if you cannot read and interpret the questions you can not learn what you need to pass the GED exams in any other subject. If a student needs a more simple text for basics then I do recommend the Contemporary group, but then that student must graduate to the Steck Vaughn Series.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Doug DePew on April 13, 2012
I've taught GED in a prison for more than a decade using the Steck Vaughn series. In that time, I've put several hundred inmates through the test, and many of them earned high enough scores to get college scholarships once they released. In those years, I've used this book possibly five times.

I think the reading book is too detailed and far too tedious. It's overkill. If a person has decent reading scores, it's really unnecessary to even study this book. I've found anyone with ninth grade reading skills can normally score a 500 or better on the reading test with only cursory instruction (if any). I taught reading with the social studies and science books. Many of the same skills such as main idea or summarization are also covered in those books with a lot more interesting material. I tried to use this book a few times and just didn't find it very useful.

I'm not saying to skip the book entirely. The most useful section in this book covers poetry. Many of my testers have struggled immensely with poetry, and the explanation and lessons on poetry in here are excellent. I'd also suggest the section that covers interpreting plays. That's another trouble spot.

I wouldn't suggest working this book cover to cover unless you're a really poor reader. I would suggest getting this book and cherry picking the areas where you struggle. It's not useless. It's just not as useful as some of the other books. This book is all right to prep for the GED, but more important than this book is just reading. The best way to improve your reading score is to read a lot then read some more. Read a wide variety of material as well.

Steck-vaughn books are awesome..especially the ged math.....if you are struggling and have been out of school for many years, even over a decade I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEIR BOOKS! All you need is a month-2 months to study at least 8 pages a day and you will do great! Their simplicity of teaching is just outstanding...go get your GED, I am happy to say that their books have helped me get my ged/hs diploma...before coming across their books I was just struggling to understand the method of other books teachings and I always felt like I kept having to start over..with steck vaughn it was the complete awesome..now I am in college..and I want to help others who have had a hard time getting their GED like me...go for it you can do it!
