Описание: Begins with an introduction that explains the content of the Science exam.

McGraw-Hill Education, McGraw-Hill. My husband is currently using this book to study for his GED. The beginning has a test with 50 questions. Each question refers to a chapter in the book. If you get the question right, you don't go over that particular section (if you feel confident). If you get the question wrong, you get 2 pages of sample questions and an explanation on how to do whatever that problem was asking you to do.

I bought this for my teen two years ago as he struggled with the math portion of the GED. He ended up scoring in the top 99% on that portion of the test; I am sure this book was at least 75% responsible for that.

We approached his work in this book on a daily basis: one top skill a day for 50 days. Now, two years later, I've purchased a copy for my other teen. She's a wiz at math, but I want her to keep her math skills in check as she works more on the areas she is weaker in for the GED.

(Incidentally, both my kids have opted out of high school, instead choosing to attend college at the ripe old age of 16. I've heard it's a trend in some school districts. With the number of calls I field from interested parents, it seems that it may become a trend here too.)

I tutor various students in math. One of them had taken the GED test but had not passed the math portion. I initially found this book at the local library. After I realized that the book had a section where the student could do a sample set of problems, I purchased the book. When the student has completed the sample set or problems, then I can concentrate my tutoring efforts towards the types of problems the student did not complete correctly. After the tutoring is complete, the full set of test problems in the book gives the student the opportunity to re-test his GED math skills. The book also provides instructions for solving various types of problems. I encourage students to purchase the book and study the material at their own pace.

I had gotten "McGraw-Hill's GED" complete study book (that massive book that combines everything) and was impressed at how much it included. I did incredibly badly at Math, so I thought getting the "Top 50 Math Skills" would be better for me.

I was disappointed first of all how thin this book is in comparison. I took the pretest and got a 92%. I seriously doubt I am that good at math. A lot of the hardest questions from the big book aren't in this book. Also, in the big book I got around 40% at the Pretest for my first attempt, and then a 60% after some studying. I believe those scores are more accurate.

In conclusion, I suggest you buy the big book "McGraw-Hill's GED" because it covers a lot more and will be better at preparing you for difficult math.

I have used this book to teach an adult education GED prep course at a college! I loved how the book has a pre-test and post test and breaks down the math skills needed for the GED. My students liked the way the book gives an example problem then breaks down how to solve and answer. I liked how the problems were exactly like ones seen on the GED test and the answer formats are the same. It even breaks down the calculator allowed to be used on the GED, how to answer in the different answer formats, and some help with math computation.

This is a great book for teachers, tutors and study groups. The book is obviously made up of fifty skills. Each skill is only a couple of pages long and offers practice with GED style questions. I like the book because the small bits of information make a quick review for students. A student can do one skill a day or a week and know exactly how much is left. I also like the book as an introduction to what students actually need. All too often students are overly concerned with fractions and not concerned enough about word problems and problem solving. The book keeps word problems and GED specific problem solving front and center in each skill.

Gone are the days of creating worksheets. This booklet does all that for you and with illustrations. It condenses difficult operations and makes the shorter and more manageable. My students love this book.

Does a good job of leading the reader through an understanding of each skill Excellent word problems will continue to make this a winner, even for the 2014 GED test. I just wish there were even more word problems, and that they were of ascending difficulty.
This book is great to learn the math skills that you need to learn in order to pass the GED math test. I highly recommend this book if you plan to pass your GED math before this December. Buy it and run away with it. It's a great book.
