Choosing the Correct Information
A common complaint among students is that they often find themselves overwhelmed with information. They don't know which numbers matter or how to find the information they need within word problems, charts, and graphs.
The GED loves "item set" problems. They'll give you a ton of information in the form of a word problem or a visual (or, commonly, both!), then ask you multiple questions about different aspects of the same information. When this happens, it is crucial that you know exactly which information to use in order to solve each problem.
