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.

At 22 and with two small children to care for, I didn’t have many options. Though bilingual and with some work experience in an office setting, I’d been too long out of the workforce – a mere two years! - to merit any serious consideration.
