From February until May 14 or when its supply is exhausted, Piedmont Community College (PCC) will offer free, GED® practice tests, GED Ready™. “There is a limited supply of free tests we are able to provide at PCC, so if someone is interested in  a free practice test to see how they might score on GED® tests, now is the time to do it,” said Debra Harlow, Dean of PCC’s Adult Basic Skills Program.

Currently, Pearson Vue/GED Testing Service offers the same GED Ready™ (practice tests) online to students for $6 per subject or $24 for the battery of four subjects. Adults who choose to take advantage of PCC’s free offer to test at PCC will save themselves up to $24.

GED Ready™ will predict if adult learners are ready to pass GED® tests. If so, they can proceed to register for GED® testing. If a person does not pass the GED Ready™ tests, he will be given a personalized study plan detailing the areas of study needed in order to improve his scores and chances of passing the high school equivalency test.

Once an adult learner is confident he has the ability to pass the high school equivalency test, he will register and pay online for GED® testing at Testing is offered at both the Person County and Caswell County campuses of PCC. The cost of the total battery of four subjects of GED® testing is $80 or $20 per subject. The four subjects/test components are: Language Arts Reading, Social Studies, Science and Math.

Cynthia Worth, GED Examiner at Piedmont, advises that it is to an adult learners’ advantage to take the free GED Ready™ tests to save money and time to find out if they are ready for GED® testing before spending $80 on the official test.
