GED Study Guides, Resources and Practice Tests

The General Educational Development (GED) tests are a group of four subject tests which, when passed, provide certification that the test taker has United States or Canadian high school-level academic skills. It is an alternative to the US high school diploma, HiSET, and TASC test. Some students in high school never finish getting a diploma, so for them, this series of tests indicates to others, such as employers, that they have a high school level of education.
