Preparatory Centres For the General Adult Education Development Test

By WENDY TERRY - March 9 2013

In the Winter 2012 issue, Learning Curves did a feature article on the GED General Education Development Test which, if you pass, earns you a high school equivalency certificate.

This test is administered by the Independent Learning Centre, which lists study materials on line to help you prepare for test and there are math and science tutors on call. However, for many students more preparatory help is needed. There are preparatory centres independent of ILC which will help you prepare. The following is a list of some of these centres.
