What’s on the 2014 GED® Test?

The Basics

Face it, without the basics of math, reading, writing, and critical thinking, you’re going to be locked out of good jobs and higher level education. That’s what’s on the test. Why? It’s what getting ahead today requires.

But the idea of going “back to school” for a GED class can feel overwhelming. Not to worry. We’ve made getting the education you need easier than you ever thought possible. As one of our students described, “It’s not like going to school, it’s like going to the movies.” Learn more about our online preparation for the GED test programs.
