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 using the Steck Vaughn series. In the last decade, I've put hundreds of guys through the GED test, and often they score high enough to earn college scholarships after they release. This is one of the books I used to do it.

The writing test is given in two portions. Part I is a multiple choice test covering basic writing areas (punctuation, grammar, spelling, parts of speech, subject-verb agreement, verb tenses, etc.). That's the test where this book is terrific. Part II of the writing test is a forty-five minute, 250 word essay. The essay is graded from a one to a four and the two scores are combined using a formula to give you one writing score. The way I moved guys through was to focus on Part I of the test and shoot for a 2 on the essay which is a passing score. It's fairly easy to write a 2 on the essay. I could prep most guys for that in a day once I had already taught them the skills they'd need for Part I of the test. This book also has sections between the chapters about the essay. Those are plenty to pass the essay. This book is really the only one you need to pass both parts of the writing test. It has worked great!

If you work every page of this book from cover to cover and use it the way it was designed, you will get a good score on Part I of your GED writing test and pass the essay. It covers everything you'll need to know. The lessons are well structured and thorough. They cover all of the important skills you need. 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. Then make sure you can write a decent, five paragraph essay, and you will pass writing.

This was a great help in sentence structure and gave a lot of extra work for my child who had problems in this area. He raised his test score on the pre-test greatly.

I purchased this for my grandmother who never had the opportunity to finish high school because of past circumstances (i.e having kids too young) but the material is not very hard but I feel it still helps teach the fundamentals if the person has enough time throughout their respective days to work through the problems. Unfortunately she did not complete all her tests in a satisfactory manner in the time allotted (Fla GED standards are ridiculous) and she must begin again with the new standard but we are confident that she will do well this time with the new format and she is still using this book. I say 3 stars because of the lack of a section in each chapter that walks you through example problems in a way that the layman can understand. The book assumes you know certain material and it can be difficult to teach yourself using only the problems you have available. Anyways I can go on forever about the book but it does its job if you have a person who thoroughly understands the material, and I mean thoroughly. This goes for the entire current series of these books One last thing. I just graduated from FSU with a degree in Economics and there were a few problems that I had to think over for a minute. They, genuinely, stumped me and maybe that says something about my education but I think it says something about the books lol

I was a tutor in an Oregon prison. We used these books with an amazing amount of success. Many of our students lacked even the most basic math skills and were used to giving up when things became too difficult, these books enabled them to not only succeed and pass their tests, but in many cases, with scores that placed them in "Honors" distinction.
