3 Steps to a GED® Credential

By Alec Chambers, GED Teacher

Take the mystery out of getting your GED credential. Over 665,000 got theirs last year, and now you can get yours. Really it’s easy as 1-2-3.  Here is how the GED Academy gets you ready to pass your GED in 4-6 weeks. 

1. Start with a GED Practice Test

First, we find out what you need to know to get a GED® credential. Our online GED practice test will predict your actual GED test score and tell you (and us) exactly what skills you need to brush up on.  

2. Brush Up with GED Academy

Second, we create a personalized learning plan to teach you the exact skills you need to be GED test ready. Our Accelerated Learning Program teaches you in the context of real-life situations that make sense and are easy to understand.  It's like having your own personal tutor.  

3. Pass the GED Test with Confidence

Third, plan your celebration party because you will pass the GED test the first time.  When you complete our GED test programs, you’ll know for sure that you are ready to pass the GED test at a local testing center.  

Why You Can’t Take the GED Test Online

NO, Online Tests Are Not Accepted.  The online GED test websites make all sorts of promises...quick certificate easy GED test online, transcripts, even letters of recommendation. The rule of thumb is this: if you take a GED test, HiSET, TASC or high school diploma test online, it’s a fake. It will not be accepted by a legitimate college or business.

How and Where the GED Test Is Administered

The GED test is administered by your state and given at official GED testing centers. There are over 3,500 GED testing centers, so finding one close to your home is easy. Taking the GED test in person ensures that the certificate you receive is authentic and accepted for jobs and colleges. Our online GED Academy programs make it easy to pass.

Pass the GED Test without Being Nervous

One thing we’ve learned from educating over 1.4 million people to get a GED credential is that lack of self-confidence is their biggest obstacle to their ability to succeed. Just because school was hard in the past does not mean it’s going to be now. We’ve invented a way of learning that makes everyone a success, and yes, we do mean everyone.
