How do I go about getting my GED?

Getting GED


I left school in seventh grade and this would have been my senior year. I want to get my GED. How do I go about getting it?
I live In New Jersey!

It depends on where you are and the programs in your area. I believe there are a variety of ways to prepare for the GED test. You may find a program at your local community college, college extension program or adult school. Your local public library may have GED test preparation books.

just type in your search engine: state name GED
sometimes it helps to add to your search… site:.gov
or site:.edu

To look up books in libraries across the U.S. you can use WorldCat

http://www.worldcat.org/

Or find a library near you and look for the catalog (that’s where you look up books) http://lists.webjunction.org/libweb/

A lot of libraries now offer information assistance via some type of live chat service found on their web pages. You can ask this type of question there and receive assistance.

Best of luck.

    we need me information on how old you are, and what state you are in because the GED rules varies between states before we can answer your question

    Take a GED preparation course. Since you missed so much school it is necessary. Your instructor will probably help you with your GED application especially if it is a course that is given locally./
