    This book was excellent, i found myself in a difficult situation

    This book was excellent, i found myself in a difficult situation about 2 months ago.
    I was in college, had a fake H.S. diploma(that i didn't know was from a school that wasn't accredited) taking an automotive fundamentals course.
    Then found out, to follow through with my program and receive an AA in that field, I needed my H.S diploma or G.E.D.
    After being out of school for four years, i thought it wasn't possible for me to pass these exams;
    Also if i may add i only had 30 days to study, with about 2-3 hours a day because of my school and work
    schedule, to top that off that does not even include the time it took for me to get home and shower
    as well as get ready fro work.
    Technically i probably had about and hour and a half each day to study.
     Getting back on track here, the book did just what it said it would get you to  
    "pass the G.E.D, or earn a higher score(for second attempt adults)"
     I passed on my first attempt and received my G.E.D in the mail two and a half weeks later.
    At times the book doesn't give enough information and can become confusing.
     For myself, what helped the most was just reading the section over and over until it landed,
     and if for some reason it didn't. I wouldnt worry too much because at the beginning of the book it
    tells you how much you need to pass the test and gives you a pretty good break down of how well you
     need to do.
    I am not the brightest person ever and if you are reading this you may or may not think the same
     about yourself. Believe me this book made a huge change in my life and put me a step in the right
     I know this may sound like a load of crap, but literally a week after i completed the test someone
    walked into my current dead end coffee making job and said they like how confident I seem(knowing i had passed my test, of course i was).
    I got called in for an interview, by the president of the company, and the owner(his father).
     To my surprise his father(a very wealthy man,was a G.E.D graduate as well, and we made
    an instantaneous connection through having that in common.
     I am now working for this new company, with many great opportunities and being paid extremely well.
     I am not saying that the G.E.D is going to do this for everyone, but you never know.
    I might not have landed this stellar job position if it wasn't for me passing the test.
    That all comes back to the day i chose this book to help me accomplish my goal.
     Invest in this book, I literally have made 15 times what this book cost, this past pay period alone.
     And I have made about 10 times what the actual G.E.D test cost me this month!
    This book is worth it! Taking the test is worth it, so do it! I apologize for writing such a lengthy comment,
    but when i was reading reviews, and searching for the right book, i know i would actually read through
     the novel like comments. If you have read this, thank you for your time, and happy studying!

    Easy to follow and understand. Very helpful and encouraging. Doesn't make the GED seem so intimidating like most prep books. Already passed science test thanks to this book!
