New Resources for the 2014 GED Test

August 18, 2014 - 12:45pm
A New Test

This year, the General Educational Development (GED) test had a makeover. Unlike the previous iteration of the GED test from 2002, the 2014 test is given on a computer and is divided into four content areas.

The four content areas are:

  • Reasoning Through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Science
  • Social Studies

(“A Fighting Chance”, n.d.)

 

Library Resources for Preparation

Available now at Clark College Libraries

In order to prepare for this new test, the library has several resources available. In our Transitional Programs Collection, look for “New GED: strategies, practice & review” from Kaplan Publishing (Call Number: TPC Skills LB3060.33.G45 V36 2014).

We are currently ordering more resources for the updated test as they become available from the publishers, so check back often in the upcoming academic year for even more print book resources.

Another great resource that is fully updated for the 2014 version of the GED Test is Learning Express. This database offers tutorials, full-text ebooks, and practice tests for all parts of the GED. In addition, if you do not feel ready to take the practice tests, Learning Express provides pre-GED level learning material to build up your skills in the four content areas.

For a complete list of resources from the library for GED preparation, please see our Subject Guide for ABE/GED.
