Kaplan GED 2009-2010 Edition: Complete Self-Study Guide for the GED Tests Oct. 14 2009
By Brimeeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book needs some work, its a little confusing and not always accurate, I use it to tutor people for the GED test, and as someone who has been to high school and went to college, I wouldn't say it is the easiest learning tool for a beginner, I would recommend McGraw-Hill's GED. Although this is an opinion and not every persons studying is the same, so this may work better for you.

I ordered this GED study book for my niece. It arrived very quickly, and was in excellent condition. The book has an "easy to follow" format which is good for kids who need simplicity for motivation. I would definitely recommend for anyone needing a GED resource.

Numerous Errors - How to Get 770+ May 29 2012
By Santa Clara Nurse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is okay, but be aware that there are numerous errors in the text. Many of these, unfortunately, are in the practice exercises, so if you check your work with the answers in the back of the book, you will likely get 1-2 wrong in several exercises. I am not aware if there is an errata sheet(s) available from the publisher, as my time frame for testing was short and I just wanted a quick brush-up.

Explanations of the material are sufficient, and there are many exercises in the book.

I used this text along with McGraw-Hill's GED w/ CD-ROM: The Most Complete and Reliable Study Program for the GED Tests. I would recommend anyone seriously trying to get 750+ on the tests, use both books, as the Kaplan title doesn't have a CD with practice tests, and more exposure to the material allows for an expedient passing of all the challenges associated with the GED exam battery.

How I got 770 average -

Science: Spend a few weeks watching T.V. on channels that carry nature shows to buff up on terms related to animals, plants, and geology in addition to the texts. This will allow you to get familiar with terms that aren't in the books, but are on the GED exams. If you have solid reading skills, the science portion will be a breeze.

Math: Do all the practice material in the books. Take the practice tests on the McGraw-Hill CD, and polish up any area that's lacking, by revisiting both of the texts.

Writing: Have a solid grasp of a 5 paragraph essay. Be prepared to talk about life experience, my question required discussion of a past experience. If you have trouble, trace your hand on a piece of paper. Put your Main Topic in the thumb area, and your conclusion in the pinky. Use the 3 remaining fingers for paragraph topics -- when you change idea, change paragraph. Check your spelling. Use a few big words that are well placed. Good idea to type yourself a practice essay in a word processor, then use the thesaurus to expand your vocabulary.

English: Have a good idea how to use commas, verb tense, and subject-verb agreement. Understand where a period is needed; and when a semicolon can be used.

Reading: Be prepared to put your thinking cap on. Not all of the answers will necessarily coincide with the text. It will require you to think outside of the box, and perhaps interpret what the writer was saying.

When testing: Read every question word-for-word, all the way to the end. On two of my tests, the answer appeared to be one option easily chosen -- but certain phrases toward the end of the prompt made this untrue.

If you are concerned about a particular section, visit the testing center as many have Adult Ed. GED classes that can prep you, free of charge.
