- INSTRUCTION: You must attend one of the seven-week classes. During classes, reading, math and language skills are covered. Upon completion of a seven-week block, some students may be ready to take the tests, while others may require enrollment in additional seven-week blocks.
- GED TESTING: Practice tests for each of the five subject areas are required prior to attempting the official GED tests. When you are ready to schedule a GED test, you must make an appointment. You may attempt them in any order; you are not required to take all five at once.
