I have taught GED for several years and we constantly use the TABE tests. I like the test because it is easy to administer and easy to grade.

Recently, many professionals need to update their files and continue to show "language proficiency" in reading and comprehension for writing reports. This book will help you to prepare for such a test.

Also, if you work in a more "hand's on" job, then you may need to refresh your skills in reading. Even as people get older, they need to continue to work on vocabulary, writing and reading skills. The TABE test is a great instrument for educators and students.

I recommend this book for someone who does not have time to take a remedial English class. This book is a great tool for study. I do agree it is "the First Step to Lifelong Success" as a student and for any professional.

I believe that adults need a refresher course from time to time no matter what profession they are in. GED students will most likely be familiar to the TABE tests because it is used to help the teacher locate the grade level of the student through the test scores. They help the student by the practice of taking tests. This is a book designed to help the student improve their skills by taking the TABE test.

It is also a great tool for students who are bilingual.

El libro es muy excelente para alumnos para mejorar su inglés. En particular, se puede mejorar la comprensión, el vocabulario, y la lectura.

Como enseño el examen del GED, tengo que usar el TABE test para calificar el nivel del alumno. Por eso, el libro es muy provechoso para mejorarse en los estudios generales.

This book is nice for knowing what will be on the placement test. I need to brush up on my math and this did nothing but confuse me. I have other books that are more useful than this one. I've been out of high school for years and I could comprehend math problems when I need to. This book did not satisfy me at all. I will continue to keep practicing with other books before I take the test. If you're in a crunch like me and you just want to know what could be on the test get this book. If you really need to score high to get into nursing I wouldn't recommend this book unless you have the time to through lessons and lessons before you get to the answer key.

The book is very detailed. I wish the book was more compact. I only need it the math section. But overall is a great to have and study before taking the TABE.

This book had several errors in it including wrong answers. Some of the problem questions weren't even complete! The best part of the book was the way it helps you discover the way you learn. I found the way the math lessons were organized very confusing. I had to supplement this book with a lot of free help that i found online. I found a lot of helpful info on youtube & at Khan Academy. My husband found a free pdf study guide online through our state's Dept. of Education website. This website lists several helpful links: [...]
