Format: Paperback
This great book is filled with everything you'll need to know about the GED test. If you can pass the mini and pre - tests, you are ready for the GED test. If ever you have trouble with a subject, go into the table of contents and search out the unit or lesson for that subject. When you find it, you'll be able to quickly learn how to figure it out, and move on to the next obstacle. The lingo and pictures for each question are very easy to understand, and made to that you can pass THAT TEST! Good luck with your test! ~ Personal note: I passed the test with just a few weeks of studying these books. You can too!

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 teach GED in a prison to the Steck Vaughn series. After a decade in the classroom, I've probably put four or five hundred guys through the test. Many of the guys who've passed through my class have scored high enough to earn scholarships once they released. Colleges normally have scholarships reserved for GED holders and a high score is how to get them. I love the Social Studies book! It's part of my bread and butter to get high scores on the GED.

Anyone who uses this book the way it's written will pass their social studies test with a high score. I've helped guys come from a fourth grade education to a perfect score on this test. I've always supplemented the book with my own knowledge just to keep class interesting, but mostly...I just used the book the way it's designed. I would suggest working through the book cover to cover and follow the directions. The answers are in the back. Check your work and understand each lesson before moving on. Don't skip the first part of each chapter that teaches an important skill. That's the most important part of the lesson.

It's divided into areas that teach things like "contrast and compare" or "main idea". Learn those skills. Content varies depending on which form you take. The main skills don't. Content does matter, though. There are parts of this book that are on the GED test word for word. I've had inmates tell me that and who thanked me for making sure they actually learned something in class. Study what's in the book. Follow all the directions including the extra exercises between the chapters and timing yourself on the ten minute mini-tests. That helps with your timing.

I recommend this book highly. Anyone who uses it the way it's designed will pass their GED test and probably get a very high score. This is a great book to prep you.
