How to Get the Most Out of GED Practice Tests

Part of The Canadian GED For Dummies Cheat Sheet

To pass the General Education Development (GED) test with flying colors, try a few practice tests. Reviewing typical GED test questions and feeling confident with your answers is a great way to prepare for the high school equivalency exam. To really benefit and get the most out of your GED practice tests, keep the following steps in mind:

  1. Carefully read the instructions at the beginning of each test.

  2. Know the time restrictions for the real test, and stick to them as you take the practice test.

  3. Prepare for the practice test the way you would prepare for the real test.

  4. Make a mental plan beforehand so you know how to answer the questions in the allotted time.

  5. Focus on each question and choose the best possible answer.

  6. After you finish all the questions or run out of time, make some notes on your scrap paper about the difficulty of the test.

  7. Check the answers to see how you did.

  8. When you finish checking your answers, add up the number of questions you answered correctly.

  9. Review the questions you missed, even if you only missed one, and read the notes you made right after you finished the test (in Step 6).

  10. Go on to the second practice test if you did well on the first one or if you’ve finished any extra preparation you wanted to do.
