    I Also Recommend:

    Horrible, nothing helpful whatsoever.

    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.
