Ian currently taking classes, but needed extra help with some of the lessons, and was considering this book. But after reading the reviews I think that I will just stick to my textbooks. Thanks for the reviews and warnings Wont wastem my money for worthless information.

This was basically telling you what was going to happen when you got to the GED building. There were no lessons in it at all. Basically it was irrelevant to anything GED unless you really need step by step instructions on how to walk through a doorway and sit down at a desk.

This book was a big waste of money. Don't buy it. It doesn't offer any skill building I just had to go out and spend more money on another book.
