Has anyone taken the official GED math test?

GED Pretest


Did you take any of the pre-tests that are online? Were those ones harder?

I find that the ones online are almost, if not, COMPLETELY irrelevant to the official GED test. I think those tests should be BANNED. Its a terrible way for somebody that is very motivated BUT may need some brushing up to do, and then when they take those tests, THEY FAIL them! It affects their confidence! Those pre-tests are NOTHING like the actual GED Questions! All the other online pre-tests are the same for the other subjects too!

BTW I took those stupid pre-tests online, AND did HORRIBLE. I bought a book "Barrons GED" that actually had mimic pretests. Those pretests in that book were setup the SAME exact way the GED was. The same EXACT types of questions too. BTW, I couldnt believe I wasted 20 bucks on a book when after I got it home, the first thing I did was take a pre-test and passed it. I couldnt believe it… I thought that maybe the book was messed up! I couldnt figure out why the pre-tests online were 100 times harder! So then after, I signed up to take the GED math test, and PASSED!

I took it 3 weeks ago. Compared to the online versions, I’d say its about 50% the same amount of answers.

Other than that, the ratio of easy and hard Math questions on the official ged test is 30:20, or 3/2, or 1½. Meaning, you have a 15% higher chance of actually passing the GED math section. But, I won’t lie to you, there are some pretty hard questions. But, most are common sense in my opinion.
