I think this is a good book to have if you are short of time to prepare for the exam, like I was. I like it a lot bec it has been recently published plus they tell you exactly what you need to know. They give you tips on how to tackle the questions and the great thing is the GED questions are limited to just the handful.
Naturally they can't predict all the questions but it sure narrows down and cuts out the unnecessary materials which you would otherwise be slogging away and wouldn't need.
great stuff. I hope I pass and get into college.
Study for and take each test, as you are ready, and earn your diploma in less than a month like I did. You will not find a better or more complete book for your GED studies. I purchased one other book before buying this one, which did not present the information to you in a precisely structured and easy to understand manner, like this book does. That book is now collecting dust in my garage, that's 20 bucks I'll never see again.
Buying the right book to study for this test makes all the difference in the world, trust me! The GED test is more about reading and understanding paragraphs, and answering questions about those paragraphs. It is not about memorizing a bunch of facts. Buy your copy today, take and pass the test, and move on with your life.
P.S I passed the GED with a total score of 3275 out of a possible 4000, that's almost equivalent to a 3.3 GPA, In only 3 weeks!........you do the math....IT WORKS!!!
Don't be intimidated by the book's size. It's light and...dare I say...even amusing reading at some points (ex:PH Levels of Talk Show Hosts). The area in which I found it most helpful was the information it gave on how the tests are written and graded, especially on the essay portion.
If you need help on any of the test subjects there are chapters in the book that cover them and then 2 practice tests in the back. The Language Arts and Writing parts of the test are emphasized and the book goes into great detail on how to "crack" these (if you can pass these sections, you can probably do Social Studies and Science without a problem). But little attention is given to Math, which is why I gave it a 4 star rating.
Otherwise, it's a great book and I highly reccomend it especially to those who are nervous about the test and have a little brushing up to do on their writing skills.
I would recommend to anyone!!
It's like your own personal teacher. It tells you how to do the problem first, then gives you a similar problem, then tells you the answer!
There are also little tips on the side of most each page.
It has: Math, Writing, Reading, Science, & History
With two copies, Internet access and two web cams I essentially taught him what he needed to know from here he left off in high school to pass the G.E.D. It took seven weeks of continuous effort and dedication on both his and my part.
My nephew passed the G.E.D. with a B+ average, the highest test score he's ever received. He took a competency class for advanced welding and passed; he's now in welding school for complex jobs that lead to six figure payout.
I'd speculate that this story is no different from any other offering the same content. What sold me was the price and the ability to receive the item quickly.
What the book turned out to be was an excellent guidebook on the topics necessary to complete the intended task (Get G.E.D.) without complication. Easy for him to understand, easy for me to explain - easy to comprehend. It uhh even reminded me of some things.
In short: for those looking at the book for yourself or a loved one JUST GET THE BOOK. It worked for my hard-luck knuckle-headed beloved super-felon nephew it will work for you.
