I bought this book about 3 weeks before the test. Ive been out of school for 4 years and my main weakness was mathemetic-I did very badly in this area in school. This book breaks EVERYTHING down to you in a way that makes it easy for you to pass the test with high scores. You dont even particularly need to know the actual subject well. The GED tests your ability to think and ability to discern what questions they are asking-thats it! With math, I took the practiced tests(which I got a lot wrong)-but once I went back and checked the answers-I understood what the questions were asking me to do(Oh-so I just needed to do the Pythagorean theorem..).
I will say, that the tests in this book are about 25 percent harder than the real GED exam, so know that if you consistantly take the tests and go over what you got wrong-YOU WILL SCORE HIGH! No doubt about it.
I took the test this month and already got back my scores

These are all scores in the high 90th percentiles for graduating high school seniors.The scores speak for themselves. I highly reccomend this book!
When the book arrived, I was a bit taken aback by this sheer size of it and somewhat concerned that my child would also be alarmed. However, upon reading through the text, I found it very straight forward and easy to follow. We review the chapters together and have set a goal of 2 full chapters per week - there are 30 individual chapters.
In addition, I purchased the text with the optional CD ROM. It contains sample tests which can be taken either at your leisure or using the exam's timer. The sample tests appear somewhat similar in format as well as difficulty to what I took completing my CLEP exams (I'm not sure if that means colleges have been dumbed down or that students are smarter). At the very least, the practice exam format should be good practice for taking this style of exam in the GED (and later in the CLEP exams).
While my child has not taken the GED exam to date, she has studied the text and taken the sample exams on her own which seems to be instilling some new-found confidence in her academic abilities.
For the sheer volume and information, the text is a very good bargain. The chapters are short, well written, and to the point, which make it better for the student who may have difficulties spending large amounts of time covering the material. Finally, I would advise spending the extra few dollars for the CD ROM when deciding which version to purchase.
