Without a good study guide, you run the risk of going into the GED exam blind, and you want the best score possible on your first try. We are here to help and show you some of the best free study guides available.

Why Use Free Study Guides?

The GED exam is an all-encompassing review of standard material covered in a basic high school education. The test is very long, covering four sections (Math, Social Studies, Science and English/Language Arts) and lasts for nearly seven and a half hours. Needless to say, you don't want to be unprepared! With these study guides, you'll get an idea of how the test is formatted, as well as what kind of material you can expect to see on the GED.

Free Guides

In no particular order, here are some excellent sites to check out as you get ready to take your GED exam:

  • Union Test Prep: This site gives a multitude of information on the kinds of questions that will appear on the GED, with examples and practice tests for each section.
  • GED Study Guide: This site functions as a giant study guide. It includes some excellent general information on how to best prepare for the GED, as well as practice tests.
  • Mometrix Test Preparation: While the book that Mometrix sells is not free, a very handy study guide for the GED appears on their website. It tells the story of what might happen when going into the exam unprepared, and offers a multitude of strategies and techniques for taking the test.
