When you feel fairly confident in your skills in all five subject areas, you can register to take the GED test in your local area or take the "official GED practice test" to see if additional study is needed.
GED Online Learning Modules
As you type your answers and save them, you are gaining writing practice and building a "portfolio" of work online. You can add to your answers, revise and change them, or redo the lessons if you wish. Your portfolio work will strengthen your skills and help prepare you for the essay portion of the GED.Top
