The GED test will be dramatically changing January 1, 2014. The test will become computer based and the questions will be more difficult. The new test will reinforce the skills needed for college, specialized training and the workplace. Anyone who has not completed the GED test by December 31, 2013, will need to start the test all over again.
The GED preparation class covers subjects found in the GED test: writing, math, science, and social studies. Basic skills classes are for anyone who needs to brush-up on their math, reading, spelling, or writing skills. ESL classes cover the basics of the English language, including: reading, writing, grammar, American customs and culture, and citizenship.
