An old friend of mine whom I have known for over 32 years has a son who is studying for his G.E.D. They live in the other side of town so I don't get to see them too often, but I asked the son whether or not he wanted to check out EvC Forum...and so I brainstormed and came up with this topic. If he joins in this conversation, I will know that he is interested in some tutoring for free from a bunch of old men like me. Stay tuned...

Be careful what you wish for. He might find out we're all idiots.

Elijah come study
Elijah?

The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” - Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You (1894).

Re: Elijah come study
Hey how is your day, Eli? Im glad you were able to find your way around this forum.
I like it here...its easy on the eyes
So to begin, lets get this topic poppin
IIRC your first subject test was social studies

Social Studies GED
To begin with, I perused the internet to find some stuff that might help shed a perspective on this task at hand.
Just to let the peanut gallery know, Eli attends classes in the daytime to prepare for this stuff, so what we discuss here is simply icing on the cake.

Free GED practice tests
There are free practice GED tests online.
Free GED Sample Test Online for Adults | GED®
Not sure if that link is truly free, but it was the first google hit. I'm sure there are free practice tests online somewhere if that link doesn't work.
I've always found practice tests to be a great place to start. It lets you know where your weaknesses are. It also lessens anxiety because you already have a feel for what the actual test will be like.
