GED Classes Online or GED Study Guides?
For GED students who learn well on their own and get a lot from reading, a GED Test training book can be great. But most GED students need more. Learning from a textbook can be tougher than a classroom, and face it, there's only so much you can fit in a book! To learn at home, faster and easier, find out how the GED Academy teaches.
The GED Academy Accelerated Learning Program
Everything you need to get your GED diploma:
This is a basic textbook on science geared for GED test prep. It includes a pre- and post-test, an analysis of the GED testing scores, and all the science instruction needed for the GED science test. This text is often used in GED test prep courses.
If your background in science is weak this is the book to include in your study. Its strength is its completeness and examples of actual GED type questions. We highly recommend this book to candidates who need basic science instruction.
GED Social Studies
Steck Vaughn’s Ged Social Studies is a basic textbook in history and social studies issues for the GED test. Includes a GED pre test with analysis.
This is especially helpful for GED candidates who need a better understanding of U.S. history, government, as well as global issues and history. This is the text that is used in many GED test prep courses. We recommend the text for basic preparation in social studies and critical thinking.

Daring to Live Authentically Every After
You have never read a book quite like this one, and you will never be the same when you finish this unique literary adventure. You may discover you are mixed up with a soulkilling man when you read “How to Spot a Real Man.” You may decide you are finally going to give yourself the love you deserve when you finish the chapter on Impeccable Self Care. You may feel compelled to give this book to everyone you really care about. These little miracles are offered in a unique combination of candor and humor. Vicki Hannah Lein shares the discovery of her authentic voice as she offers help to readers who want to do the same.
Through stories, poems, and song lyrics, Ms. Lein shares insights about growing up in a home with too much drinking and violence. At age forty-three, Vicki loses her central vision and is forced to redefine and rediscover her purpose on the planet. Part autobiographical, part self-help and spiritual growth, this book provides hours of validation and inspiration for anyone who desires to live from their deepest truth and highest calling.
Smart Thoughts for Stupid Moments
When Motivational Coach Vicki Hannah Lein thought of writing this book, she wanted to create something handy to help all of us remember the best of ourselves when we’re at our worst. Her hope is that you’ll pick up this book first thing when you feel stuck, depressed, out-of-your-mind angry, hopeless, or sick to your stomach with grief. Smart Thoughts For Stupid Moments might just become your best friend.
This is a great practical doitnow selfhelp book. Here’s a quote that says it all:
“There’s no way to use this book incorrectly. You can’t fail. Everything you do, in whatever order you do it, will help you. I have tried to arrange the book in logical order and you just might want to start at the beginning and plow through. Or you might simply go straight to any section that draws you. It’s a good opportunity to listen to yourself and honor what you hear.”
Master the GED, 2011
The book starts with tips and suggestions on taking tests and study. Part II is a diagnostic test for determining readiness for the GED test. It includes answers and explanations as well as an analysis to guide the student in their study. The bulk of the book includes reviews in each of the GED study areas: Science, Math, Reading, Social Studies and Writing. The book ends with two complete GED practice tests including both answers and explanations.
This book is well thought out and executed. It is thorough and would definitely help the GED candidate prepare. The diagnostic test is complete and will help the candidate identify the areas they need to work on. The instruction sections, which make up the bulk of the book are somewhat superficial. The math review reminds us of high school textbooks, shudder. The book teaches by experience, by doing problems and finding out what the answer is. This is a good method for students who are far enough along in their preparation to not need work on basic skills and knowledge. The two practice tests are thorough and the explanations are clear and helpful. Overall, this is a good study guide and compares well with others.
Cracking the GED, 2011
The book starts with a 60page introduction about the GED test that is helpful, although limited in scope. It is then divided into six instruction sections that explain how to crack each of the six GED tests. The instruction sections offer a short course in GED writing, GED reading, science, math, and social studies. They are effective reviews for the student who has a good background in high school skills, but needs a quick refresher. The last section of the book includes two GED practice tests.
Overall, the book is worthwhile, but will not drastically improve your test score. We like the light reading style it tries to make the preparation fun and doable.This is a good review book for someone who just needs a quick refresher of the basics. It does not provide a thorough background instruction for those GED candidates who have forgotten basic high school knowledge and skills. The GED practice tests are good, but do not convert the scores to a real GED score. You might be better off with online classes for GED.
Barron’s GED with CD-ROM 2010
Updated to reflect the recent major changes in the high school equivalency exam, this manual presents a full-length diagnostic test with answer keys, answer analysis, and self appraisal charts. The diagnostic is followed by reviews of all GED test subjects, which emphasize proficiency in high school level math, reading comprehension, and writing skill, as well as knowledge of social studies, arts, and literature. The CD-ROM packaged with this book offers a computerized practice test for GED with automatic scoring plus additional subject review material.
A book like this is useful for the person whose background knowledge is limited either because they did not complete High School past the tenth grade or for the person who is their mid to late twenty’s, or older, and cannot remember much of what they learned in High School.
The CD-ROM is the weakest part of the book. It contains GED practice tests and some study material. It is often hard to navigate and seems to be a pretty weak supplement. For the extra money it does not seem worth it. More of a marketing gimmick than a real help to preparation, in my opinion. You would be better off enrolling in a online GED courses
McGrawHill’s GED Short Course & Contemporary’s Essential GED
The book contains both a GED pre test and post test as well as instruction in all the five subject areas. It includes a section on critical thinking skills and a good review of math and Basic English Usage. The instructional sections are limited in their scope but include many GED type questions to guide the learning.
This is a good review book for someone who has a pretty good grasp of basic high school skills but needs a quick refresher before taking the GED test. The book is easy to read and navigate and includes basic knowledge in all the subject areas. It is a scaled down version of the much bigger McGraw-Hill GED book and does not contain the depth of background knowledge.
