A short quiz follows each lesson so you can practice using the information you've covered and evaluate your understanding of the concepts. If you don't understand a topic, you can link back to it from the quiz or use the video timeline to seek out areas that you want to review.

Objectives of the HiSET: Economics & Geography Chapter

The HiSET is a high school equivalency exam with five subtests, including social studies.
