"The CliffsTestPrep" series offers full-length practice exams that simulate the real tests; proven test-taking strategies to increase your chances at doing well; and thorough review exercises to help fill in any knowledge gaps. "CliffsTestPrep GED" can help you score well on the General Education Development exam, which will show that you have the knowledge and ability of a high school graduate. More than 600,000 adults worldwide take the GED Tests each year. One out of every seven high school diplomas issued each year in the United States is based on passing the GED Tests. Most U.S. employers consider GED graduates on a par with traditional high school graduates in regard to hiring, salary, and opportunity for advancement.
Inside this test prep tool, you'll find: full-length practice tests with scoring and in-depth answer explanations; coverage of exam areas in terms of what to expect, what you should know, what to look for, and how you should approach each part; guidance on how to focus your review of specific subjects to make the most of your study time; and, introduction to the format and scoring of the exam, overall strategies for answering multiple-choice questions, and questions commonly asked about the GED. This book will help you understand the types of questions that will test your knowledge of several basic areas, such as sentence structure (fragments, comma splices, dangling modifiers, and more). In addition, you'll prepare to show what you know about: the rules for contractions, possessives, homonyms, capitalization, and parts of speech; essay writing with an assigned topic that will call for discussing a personal goal, give an opinion, state a point of view, or explain something; world and U.S. history, civics and government, economics, and geography; biology, chemistry, physics, and earth and space science; literary works, such as fiction, poetry, and drama, in addition to short essays, speeches, critical reviews, and legal documents; and, basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, and informal geometry and measurement.
With guidance from the "CliffsTestPrep" series, you'll feel at home in any standardized-test environment!
