All new content for the computerized 2014 exam
Christopher Sharpe and Joseph S. Reddy - All books by this author

The 2014 GED exam has been revised extensively to reflect the world we live in today. The most noticeable change is that the test is now computer based—a transition that requires test-takers to have strong typing and computer skills. The new exam covers additional topics in the Math and Science sections and includes “blended” subject matter within the sections, meaning test-takers will see science questions that require math to produce a numerical answer or social studies questions that require essay-writing skills and so forth. Test-takers will also find all question types used on the new computer format.

With such comprehensive changes in store for test-takers, it is fitting for Barron’s to offer a book based on the 2014 exam. The new How To Prepare For The GED Test offers test-takers a guided approach to taking and passing the exam by building on the skills they already have. Test-takers will benefit from the book’s extensive subject reviews that cover all four of the new test sections:
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • Reasoning through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning
The book also includes diagnostic tests and two full-length practice exams with all questions answered and explained. The book is also available with a CD-ROM, which presents 2 additional practice tests that simulate the actual test-taking situation.
