Pieces of study information…

  • The key to a successful score on the GED Language Arts, Reading Exam is to take things one step at a time. Break down the giant task of studying for your test into manageable pieces. Your first step in successful studying is to get into a learning frame of mind and think about your study plan.

  • It can be difficult to get in the mood to study for the GED. It's much easier to procrastinate, but if you procrastinate too much or for too long, you won't be prepared for the exam.

  • Remember that while you are preparing for the GED, your attitude is very important. It can dramatically affect how much you learn and how well you learn it. Make sure that you have a positive attitude: You will study, you will learn, and you will do well. Your study time will be time well spent if you stay true to your study plan and combat procrastination.

Creating a Study Plan and Other Strategies

  • To create an effective study plan, you need to have a good sense of exactly what you need to study.

  • Find out what you already know and what you need to learn.

  • Determine your strengths and weaknesses.

  • Set a time frame.

  • Stick to your plan.

  • As you set your deadlines, think carefully about your day-to-day schedule. How much time can you spend on studying each week? Exactly when can you fit in the time to study? Be sure to be realistic about how much time you have and how much you can accomplish. Give yourself the study time you need to succeed.

  • Sometimes it's hard to get started on a big project like studying for the GED. If you are having trouble getting going, start with an easy task, such as creating flash cards for review. That way, you will be able to accomplish something quickly and easily. And that will motivate you to move on to harder tasks. Or, try starting your study session by reviewing or copying your notes from last session. This way, you will better remember what you have already learned while you ease into study mode.

Don't Forget…Take Care of Yourself

  • You may have noticed that the last thing on the sample weekly chart is "get plenty of rest." The last few days before the exam, you should ease up on your study schedule. The natural tendency is to cram. Maybe that strategy has worked for you with other exams, but it's not a good idea with the GED exam. For one thing, the exam is a lengthy and intense battery of tests, and you need to be well rested to do your best. For another thing, cramming tends to raise your anxiety level, and your brain doesn't

    do its best work when you are anxious.
