Overview

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION:


The GED, or the General Educational Development Test, is designed to reflect the educational level of a twelfth grade student who is expected to earn his or her high school diploma. Passing this exam earns you a certificate that the vast majority of colleges, training schools, and employers in the nation recognize to be the equivalent of a high school diploma. Over one million people take the GED every year worldwide, and of these, about 70% pass. The average age of a GED test-taker is over 24 (over 30 in Canada) and almost three-fourths of test-takers are over the age 19, proving that it is never too late to receive the recognition and benefits of GED certification.

So Why Choose to Take the GED?
The GED credential is highly regarded by both colleges and employers. In fact, the American Council on GED reports that nearly all employers throughout the nation are prepared to offer the same benefits, wages, and opportunities for advancement to GED graduates as they are to regular high school graduates.

Students and adults choose to take the GED for a variety of reasons and at different stages of their lives. Many people make the decision to take the GED to improve their resumes and consequently the likelihood of obtaining good employment. Others take the test to further their current careers, to qualify for military service, or to apply for college. One of the authors of this course took her GED and went on to achieve straight A's in college, graduating with a 4.0! It is estimated that approximately two-thirds of people who choose to take the GED do so to work towards degrees, whether they be in trade, business, or technical education. A recent study showed that the majority of GED graduates saw improvements in their employment status, financial success and even in their psychological and physical health after passing the exam!

The questions on the GED are meant to assess your ability to communicate effectively, process information, and to employ critical thinking. There is a marked emphasis on questions that prepare you for entering further education or for entering a new work environment. As a result, a lot of your experience outside the classroom will come in handy in taking the test — informal learning through employment and other forms of training may help you in passing the exam’s five different sections....
