Read an Excerpt


This book is designed to help you strengthen the skills you will need to take the Mathematics test of the General Educational Development (GED) Examination.

A Pre-Test section in the beginning of this book will help you assess the areas where you need to work the hardest. After you have completed the review areas and answered all of the drill questions, you will be given a Post-Test that will show your improvement in certain areas and show you which areas you still need to study. In the Post-Test section you will answer questions very similar to those you will face on the actual GED.

Two additional practice exams are included on CD. By taking these test on the computer, you will gain the additional study features and benefits of automatic scoring and enforced time conditions.

The reviews cover all areas tested on the Mathematics test of the GED examination. Sections on Whole Numbers, Decimals, Fractions, Percents, Algebra, and other areas of mathematics are covered extensively. Each section contains a drill so you can monitor your progress as you use this book. By mastering the skills presented in this book, you will be able to approach mathematics with confidence.

ABOUT THE GED
The GED is an examination for adults who did not complete high school and would like to earn a high school equivalency diploma. The exam is given by each state, which then issues a GED diploma. The GED is taken by adults who want or need a diploma for work, college, or just personal satisfaction. Nearly 800,000 people take the GED each year.

The GED is broken into five tests: Language Arts, Writing; Social Studies; Science; Language Arts, Reading; and Mathematics. You are given about seven and a half hours to complete the examination. There are a total of 240 multiple-choice questions and an essay question on the GED examination.
The Mathematics test on the GED contains 40 multiple-choice and 10 alternate format questions to be answered in 90 minutes. This test consists of 50 percent arithmetic questions, 30 percent algebra questions, and 20 percent geometry questions. A calculator will be provided for the first half of the test only.

The GED examination is administered by the GED Testing Service of the American Council on Education (ACE) and is developed by writers who have secondary and adult education experience. Because the GED test-takers come from such diverse backgrounds, the ACE makes sure the test writers are also diverse. Once the questions have been written, they are standardized according to a certain level of difficulty and content.

The GED comes in several versions to fit the special needs of its examinees. For example, there are Spanish, French, and Braille versions of the exam, as well as large-print and audio versions.
If you would like to obtain more information about the GED, such as when and where it is administered, contact your local high school or adult education center. You can also get in touch with the GED Testing Service at:

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK
Before you begin reading the chapters on mathematics, take the Pre-Test at the front of this book. This Pre-Test will assess your current skills and indicate both your strengths and weaknesses.

This book is broken down into seven sections, each dealing with a specific area of mathematics. Each section includes exercises to help you develop your skills as well as skill-building practice exercises at the end of each section to reinforce what you have learned.

When you are finished with the review sections, take the Post-Test. Compare your Post-Test score with your Pre-Test score and see how much you have improved. You may even want to take the Pre-Test again to re-evaluate your skills.

Please note that the GED won't penalize you for guessing wrong, so if you are stuck on a question, don't leave it blank. Instead, eliminate any answers you know are not correct and choose one of the remaining options. You have a better chance of getting a question right by making an educated guess, and then you can move on to the next question. Remember, the exam is timed, so you do not want to spend too much time on any one question.
