Overview

The 2014 GED exam has been revised extensively to reflect the world we live in today. The most noticeable change is that the test is now computer based—a transition that requires test-takers to have strong typing and computer skills. The new exam covers additional topics in the Math and Science sections and includes "blended" subject matter within the sections, meaning test-takers will see science questions that require math to produce a numerical answer or social studies questions that require essay-writing skills and so forth. Test-takers will also find all question types used on the new computer format.

• With such comprehensive changes in store for test-takers, it is fitting for Barron's to offer a book based on the 2014 exam.
