One of my GED Scholarship recipients took the test and didn’t pass the science test. She was determined to pass, wanted to be part of the GED graduation in June, and has specific classes picked out for this summer to learn how to work in a dental or medical office.

Before you use these links, a warning: At these sites don’t give away your email address, sign up for any accounts or contests, or click links for ads. They are free website because they post advertisements or sell GED materials, and most of the ads are selling fake diplomas, overpriced courses, or degrees you don’t need yet. Focus on the lessons and don’t get distracted. Consider the ads like someone talking really loudly on the sidewalk outside the window while you’re taking the GED test. Don’t waste your time even looking at them!
- McGraw Hill’s GED Science Student Center: Click a chapter, and you will see links on the left-hand side of the page for Chapter Outline with definitions to learn, online flashcards to practice. AFTER you have studied the chapter outline and flashcards, do the chapter review quiz, and GED practice quiz: give yourself 15 minutes for each quiz. Note: This is a companion to the McGraw Hill GED Science book that you can purchase at Amazon (I recommend you get it used: save some $ and the planet).
McGraw Hill’s Science Vocabulary to Memorize You can practice flashcards online, but I recommend writing them down yourself to help you remember better–you can use index cards or scrap paper cut in four pieces.

To figure out the amount of time, look at the number of questions and multiply it by 1.5: for example, 10 questions x 1.5 = 15 minutes, or 20 questions x 1.5 = 30 minutes:
