What to Bring — And Not to Bring — to the GED Test Center

Part of the The GED For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Before you leave your house to go to the GED test center on test day, make sure you take a few important items (like your picture ID) with you — and leave behind a few other items (like a midmorning snack or high-tech calculator) that you won’t be allowed to take into the test room.

Do bring the following items with you to the test site:

  • Identification with your picture, birth date, and address on it

  • Pens and pencils (Make sure your pencils are sharpened — or if mechanical, that you bring refill leads — and your pens have new refills.)

  • A watch with a new battery and, if possible, a stopwatch feature

  • The test fee (if not prepaid)

Don’t take the following items into the test room:

  • Smartphone, cellphone, or other communication devices

  • Portable music device

  • Electronic devices, games, or calculator (a calculator is provided)

  • Food or drink

  • Textbooks, notebooks, reference books

  • Purse, backpack, briefcase, or duffel bag

  • Jacket, coat, hat, and gloves

You’re entering the test center to pass the tests, not relocate your entire inventory of helpful devices. You may miss these items, but leave them at home or in your car. You don’t want to risk having the test moderator disqualify you for any reason.

The one thing you can bring that may be more helpful than all those electronic gadgets is your brain. (Please don’t try leaving it at home on the kitchen counter.) Careful thinking combined with careful preparation can successfully get you through the GED challenge.
