The key to successful GED prep is knowing the difference between **active** and **passive** study. Thirty percent (30%) or your study time should be passive and seventy percent (70%) of your study time should be active.

__30% of Study Time__

Thirty percent of your study time should be spent on **passive** study activities like watching instructional videos, reading instructional material, reviewing test questions, and spending time on GED.COM learning more about the GED Test itself (what's on it, where and when you can take the test, reviewing the experiences and testimonials of others, etc.)

This is where resources like You Tube, Google searches, social media groups (Facebook, etc.), and [of course!], MYGEDLIVE.COM pay huge dividends.

__This is where you develop your mind's ability to receive information specific to the GED Test.__

__70% of Study Time__

Seventy percent of your study time should be spent on **active** study activities like taking practice tests, doing skill and reasoning exercises, writing extended response prompts and registering to take official practice tests and the actual GED tests on GED.COM.

__This is where you develop your mind's ability to perform and succeed on the test.__

__Typical One Hour Study Session__

If you are strapped for time like most people and can only study one hour at a time, here's what I would recommend for someone studying math (I use the subject of fractions as an example).

15 Minutes - Watching Fraction Video **[passive]**

15 Minutes - Do skill questions (adding, subtracting, dividing, multiplying fractions) **[active]**

15 Minutes - Do reasoning questions (word problems) **[active]**

15 Minutes - Take Practice Test **[active]**

You see how the plan above is different and focuses on your mind's development?
