- Math has been the most difficult for me. writing: 450, Social Studies: 550, Science: 510, Reading: 610, Math: 400. That's right I missed the math by one question last time. Based on my scores I only need a 410. Just retested today, and actually worked through a lot of the problems this time around. Last time I guessed a lot because of nerves, and fear of running out of time. I think that for every math problem you should get 2.5 minutes to work it out. I'm on a lot of medications, and also have a few illnesses that slow down my thought process. It is what is. Hoping, and praying I did better this time. There were some problems I knew how to do, but was out of time so I didn't get to make sure to answer them correctly. I studied like none other, so it's in God's hands now.

I passed my G.E.D test.
- My advice would be to study till your eyes shut by themselves. Second, Don't buy books because if you couldn't finish in high school your probably not going to finish a big boring book. Third, don't pay for tutors because general education should be free. Go to khanacademy.org, ( it's free) it's all videos and you can rewind and ask questions. I wish I would've learned about this website sooner than I did, I would have gotten my ged ages ago. Khan academy focuses on math, science, social studies and so much more. I didn't even know how to divide and now I can do pretty much everything from system of equations to quadratics (except calculus lol I didn't get that far) I noticed they recently organized the videos by grade so if I were you I would start with 4th or 5th grade to get basic stuff reviewed and take it from there. Good luck to everyone and congrats on taking the initiative. Email me if you have any questions or need support firstname.lastname@example.org

Mathmatics, but only if you don't study.
- To be honest, It's not that hard if you study the basic math. You can't know EVERY equation right off the bat. Most people try to "learn" their times tables to the point of instant memory, but some people arn't able to do that, myself included. I've found that if you study the METHOD, Not the answer, you'll be better off because you might know that 2x2=4 by basic memory, just like 1+1=2, but if you don't know what addition, multiplication, fractions and such DO to each number, you're going to be in VERY deep poo-poo. I pretty much dropped out in 3rd grade as a homeschooler that barely did his work, and I am VERY confident that I have passed the test. Baffles me to see people with terrible spelling passing the essays and language arts part though. Makes me wonder if it's a lottery system and either you get picked or you don't. Lols.

FIRST TIME ONLY PASSED 3 OUT OF 4!!
- hello , I'm a Hispanic from Honduras and I really Didn't went to school but I did learned English but I was still worried about the GED test since I Decided to take it in English and My first time I passed Science within 470, Social Studies within 440, Language Arts, Reading within 410 exactly, and A 380 on Math, I didnt took my language Arts, reading because I was not ready. but I took my Language Arts reading today but I dont have the score for that one till tomorrow.

PERFECT ADVICE FOR THE GED
- A lot of people are very scared and tend to get last minute jitters-its normal! My GED test is tomorrow. and I've been getting early jitters since this week. Let me just tell you- I passed my post and practice tests I took (except for math-for my practice test-due to time limit) however the case- just remember: DO NOT GIVE UP! KEEP CALM! The day you take the test- READ CAREFULLY! The thing is- I wanted to console myself- that everything will be alright. I've been taking cases for 2 months.-and a week before the test- my mind is numb- I cant focus on any work! I haven't tackled on how to stop myself from wasting time-I should be reviewing. but somewhere-deep inside me-I know i'll be fine-and when I dig deeper inside-I'm filled with guilt-I might fail-due to no revision -1 week b4 the test! But- people! Don't make the same mistake I did! PLEASE STUDY AND REVIEW WELL!- EVERYTHNG WILL BE FINE-WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS TIME- to better future! AMEEN! \(-^_^-)/ BEST OF LUCK

can't give up
- I dropped out of school my 9th grade yr. (2005) I have been. To get my GED sense then. I have passed everything but math. I got a tutor he seems to think I did great. I passed all the practice test online that he gave me. I have missed feelings about the test. I have taken it 2x this yr. I have so much ridding on this. I need and want it so bad.

- I took my first GED test 5/19/2012 I passed everything but math even though my total score was above average high score I got 380 in math. I was so disappointed b/c I was confident that I would pass. But I took the math test over on 10/17/2013 and I feel like I did so much better but I'm scared of my results. I really don't Want to fail and take the new GED test in 2014. I can only pray for now And have faith. My results should be here soon!! OMG!
