Overview

Around 700,000 people nationwide take the GED each year, and studies show that about 45 percent of GED test takers do not pass on their first attempt. This preparation book is for adult learners who wish to undertake a program of self-study in preparation for taking the GED Language Arts Writing Tests (Part I and Part II). GED test takers are often not used to the structure of a standardized exam. This guide will not only offer a review of all tested topics on the Writing section of the GED, but it will also give a brush up on basic study and test-taking skills. And, since people with rusty study skills will tune out if lessons are too long, the information is presented in short chunks of instructional material followed by short quizzes to keep their attention and maximize learning. Pre-GED: ELA Writing, perfectly geared to its audience, includes: 1 diagnostic test and 2 full length practice exams with complete answer explanations Complete review of all tested topics, including sentence structure, word usage, mechanics, organization, and writing tips and strategies Mini-quizzes throughout to test all covered topics Free access to an online practice exam Tip boxes throughout that give readers mnemonic aids, study advice, and other helpful shortcuts Boost boxes throughout with motivational information including anecdotes from GED passers and messages from potential employers and higher educational institutions, designed to keep readers motivated The GED exam is well recognized by many institutions and in order to work towards any reasonable success in the future, one must perform satisfactory on this exam. The excessive amounts of practice problems in this exam will only help to ensure that users of this book receive the maximum amount of preparation humanly possible. With step-by-step instructions and resourceful information tucked inside this preparation book, future GED test takers will learn how to approach the exam with confidence and excellence. The education tip boxes work to the readers' advantage when they present information that will only broaden the horizons of the potential test takers and give them the study aids they need to succeed. Even arguably far more beneficial than the tip boxes, boost boxes provide readers with motivational messages that can do a world of good for test takers who question why they are going through this process. Pre-GED: ELA Writing offers students the help their need when they need it to encourage them to make the most of their time before the exam in an effort to succeed during the test.
