I'm going to spend the next two weeks - leading up to our August GED Class - getting you prepared so you get the most out of the course and materials.
MY GED PHILOSOPHY
The GED Test is simply a steppingstone in your path - it is not the end goal. Prepare to pass it, not to ace it!
Each GED Test has a maximum of 200 points. You need to score 145 to pass. All of my materials are based around that 145 number.
Basically, if you get 65 - 70% of the test questions correct, you can hit that 145 mark or a little better and put this test behind you. That's a lot you don't have to know and still get your GED!
THE CORE SKILL I TEACH
More than anything else, I focus on a two-step process.
1) Identify the Question
2) State Your Path
These two steps will lower your anxiety on the test and help you to get more questions correct! This process is true across all four tests. Most students immediately feel the pressure of the test and stop actually reading the questions - instead - they skim the content for things they recognize and dismiss anything that they don't. This causes students to miss easy questions "disguised" as difficult question and end up getting frustrating scores like 142 and 143 - so close - but not enough!
During the course, you'll hear me talk about this concept over and over. In fact, I'm attaching a form and I want you to use it on test questions for your first assignment.
