Don't Panic! You're not supposed to do it all!

Most students need 2-3 Units in order to pass math. The units overlap so that struggling students can continue to review and build skills without repeating lessons, and experienced students can pass quickly.


Let's Skill Build!

One mistake struggling students make is trying to do too much too fast! It's very important to isolate skills and practice them individually, before building to the type of complex examples found on the GED®

Start with Unit 0. Don't skip lessons! You may choose beginner practices a lot at first. That's okay! It's like the gym. The more Units you complete, the stronger you'll get. With each unit, your new skills will better equip you to practice at a higher level!
