WHAT ARE GED TESTS?
The GED test has five sections in the areas of Writing, Social Studies, Reading, Science, and Mathematics. The questions in each of these sections require general knowledge and thinking skills. Few questions ask about facts, details, or definitions.
Even though you have not finished high school, you have probably gained knowledge and skills through experiences, reading, and informal training. The GED tests are designed to measure the important knowledge and skills, usually learned during four years of high school, that you may have obtained in a different manner.
The GED test format is multiple choice. The questions range in difficulty from easy to hard and cover a wide range of subjects. Part II of the Writing Skills Test requires a written essay.
