A much better use of your time and money is to read everything you can get your hands on and purchase a comprehensive GED prep book.
Jody
I have found it to be a good study guide and have learned and reviewed some of the stuff I had already studied in 2013 with another book .
G. Cano
The CD that comes with the book does not give a score but tells you if you got it wrong and what the right answer is with explanations.

I've been teaching GED classes for years, and have been through three overhauls of the GED Test. I was anxious to get this book, as I have a student taking the new GED Test this week. I'm currently sitting with her as she attempts the Practice Tests on the included CD. The CD is, btw, the only reason I ordered this book. Since the new test is taken all on computer. I had hopes that the Barron's would simulate the actual test.

OMG. This thing is awful. Let's overlook all the disclaimers about how the Barron's people have no freaking clue if their practice test is anything like the actual test, and how they wrote their textbook without the blessing of the GED Testing Service. I'm told by the publisher that the GED Testing Service REQUIRED all those disclaimers!

The CD practice tests are incomprehensible. My student just took the Language practice test. The directions state there are 50 questions. There are actually 51, AND no way to answer the last one, so I guess there are actually only 50 questions, but my student spent several minutes trying to find a question to answer in #51. I'm told by the publisher that Question 51 is the essay.

There are short answer questions, but when the test is scored, the analysis merely says the question is "attempted" not whether it was correct or not. There's no summary of the score. You have to go question by question to calculate the number correct and, as I've said, the short answer questions just show the "attempted" marker. There's no quick way to score the tests, nor is there a correlation to projected GED Tests scores based on practice test performance. I was told by the publisher that this is an unsolvable problem due to the nature of short answer and fill in the blank questions.

so I have had the book for about a month and a half now . I have found it to be a good study guide and have learned and reviewed some of the stuff I had already studied in 2013 with another book . I must add than although it may be irrelevant I was ready to take the 2013 version of the GED and pass it , however I wasn't able to take the test due to other personal problems . anyways , the parts I have studied so far are science , Math and some social studies . so I will review each part separately letting everyone know than I haven't yet taken the test since I would like to learn some more before doing so .

the Math section I have found it very helpful , although I believe you must pay very close attention to everything and must study from beginning to the end in the order they set it all up , because they will not re-explain what they already explained in past lessons , and because believe it or not the Math section does happen to have some few mistakes mainly in the final answers given at the end of every lesson , nothing big really if you are actually paying attention you will notice any mistakes right away ( page 168 for example has a tiny mistake on it and so does page 279, also saw another mistake in the equations part ) .. either way as I said the book still its very helpful , has a lot of material to study and to learn .. doesn't have SOH CAH TOA as I thought it would , so guess that won't be on the 2014 test after all .

the Science section have found it very educating , and very well explained . lots of reading to do and expect it to be very helpful once I actually take the test .

Ordered this book for my boyfriend who dropped out of high school several years ago. He was planning to just take the test, but I felt he should at least prepare for it using some kind of book. I Saw this book on Amazon, ordered it, and gave it to him. It has shown him many weaknesses and has really helped him prepare for taking the test.

I tutor GED students at a local adult literacy center and I am truly sorry that they didn't muster good enough scores to pass the GED last year. This book shows us how college-bound the GED has become, and it's pretty scary. I have two masters degrees, but I don't think I could pass parts of the GED based on the information in this book. I haven't had a math class since 1962 and it would take a lot of prep for me to get the advanced math the test requires. The writing, which I tutor, seems to be based on arcane historic passages that include lots of outdated language and long boring technicalities. The whole thing is pretty terrifying, yet my students soldier on and work really hard to keep from despairing and pass the test.

My daughter used this book and so far she has passed the test that she attempted which was the math test. I think like anything else it's really good if you use it.

While we haven't completed all the sections yet, so far we've found that this book has several mistakes in it. This is especially true for the math section. My wife is trying to get her GED and I spend a lot of time showing her why the answers in the book are incorrect. There are places where they have the same answer for different problems. While I know that it is possible to do that in some cases, that isn't true for these particular questions. While this book may be okay if you are simply reveiwing it for the GED test, it is not one that I would recommend to someone that is just getting started. The other thing that we dislike about it is that it is very difficult to find the answers. It would have been better to have put them at the end of the section or the back of the book instead of throughout the pages. Wait for this one to be revised or find a different one.
