2014 GED

I officially passed all the exams. Math166, Social 158, Science 159, RLA151. It took me two months and half to complete all the exams. I studied Kaplan GED book. Make sure GED ready parcatice test before you take real test because it will tell you most likely you will pass or not. GED ready tests are similar to real exam, and also it is timed. I know it costs $6 each, but I think its worth it. In my opinion, RLA was the hardest because passage was too long and I did not have enough time to read and answer. I did not complete the test, but I passed with 151. First section was reading comprehensive 15 questions/37min. Second section was extended response. Third section was 31 questions/65min. I only had few grammer questions. Get ready for reading comprehensive questions! You need to understand the main topic so you can pick correct answer. Science and Social are also many reading comprehensive questions.

GED 2014

I TOOK THE READING & LANGUAGE ARTS GED TEST I RECEIVED A 155. I THINK MY ANXIETY GOT THE BEST OF ME . I KEPT GOING OVER QUESTIONS WHICH CAUSED ME TO LOOSE ALOT OF TIME SO I WASENT ABLE TO COMPLETE ALL QUESTIONS . I FAILED THE SOCIAL STUDIES WITH A 136 . I WAS HIGHLY UPSET BECAUSE I FEEL THE KAPLAN BOOK I STUDIED DID NOT CONTAIN THE SAME MATERIAL ON THE TEST. YOU HAVE TO DO ALOT OF READING!!! YOU ALSO SHOULD KNOW HOW TO INTERRUPT THE PASSAGES !! THE SHORT ANSWERS ON BOTH TEST ARE SIMPLE EVERYTHING IS RIGHT THERE IN THE PASSAGE !!! IVE DECIDED TO RESEARCH AND STUDY MY OWN MATERIAL AND I WILL RETAKE THE SOCIAL STUDIES TEST NEXT WEEK.

YEEY PASSED IN FALL 2013

I took a flight from Romania to USA for this exam. Gosh... at the beginning it was hard as English is not my native language. I took this exam THREE times.... Once i failed at grammar part( which i found it most difficult from all the subjects) then when took the exam 2nd time guess what happened THEY LOST THE EXAMS... I was really frustrated as I had to retake it The final result -grammar part was 560/1000. Got in college... he he. Keep on trying- Get your GED- Its a MUST these days

GED 2014

I have took GED on 1993. I passed everything except science. I did not complete. It bothered me so I decided to take it again 2014. English is not my first language so it was very hard for me. I passed math with score 166. I studied Kaplan GED book. I did all the questions in the book. I took many online practice test. Although I was confident, I found 2014 exam very hard. I took social study next.I studied with Kaplan GED book. I failed first time. My score was 147. I retook the test 2 days later and I passed with 159. Social study was almost like english comprehensive questions. you have to read longer excerpt to answer the question. You really have to understand whats in the excerpt. Most of the questions were from civic and government. I think I did horrible on extended response, but I passed exam. I have two more exam to take. It was hard because of language barrier. I am old and english is not my first language, but I passed it so you can do it.

My Year!

I've passed them all last year except the math, so I enrolled in a GED preparation class and today I feel so much better. The only test I have to take is math, yes the new law has passed where you don't have to retake the others if you passed them already. Lucky me!

2014 GED

Passed and I only studied for an hr BEFORE the actual exam. How does it work, do you get points deducted for unanswered questions? I only finished 3/4 of my science portion; got 152... They have some advanced algebra/alg 2, but it's mostly just quadratic formulas but all you doing is plugin shit in my nigga i feel so ready for society... NOT.. I shoulda studied more and got honor scores. Look wayyyy better on your transcripts.

GED

Honestly if you can read well you will do fine on everything, math is tough though I took my GED 2 months ago, did not pass math by 2 questions so I just had too re-take the math section on May 14 and am still waiting to see if I passed or not!! Good luck to anyone that is taking it just breath, and go for it the worst part honestly is how long it takes my test lasted 8 hours so I was mentally done by the end lol you'll do just fine good luck too ya!!
