Two primary reasons for developing the test were the number of American men being sent overseas to fight in World War II before they could complete their high school education, and the number of people leaving school early to join the largely industrial work force. Ina new series of the test was released.
My student is a Burmese woman who learned English after coming to the U. Our local community college gave her the book as a way to increase her understanding of, and fluency in, English writing and grammar. I like this book's exercises and sample tests, which we use for reading comprehension and vocabulary.
For that purpose it is a very good resource, and I highly recommend this book not only as a tool for GED preparation but also for comprehension and English vocabulary.
By Sun on Apr 05, I used this book as well as the corresponding books for the other GED subjects and was able to pass the GED with perfect and near perfect scores.
My GED instructor even commented on the fact that I was done with each test within a fraction of the time allotted for each test. There is way more info in these books than you actually need to know for the test.
If you can master what is in these books you will pass the GED on the first try with no problems. We used these books with an amazing amount of success.
Many of our students lacked even the most basic math skills and were used to giving up when things became too difficult, these books enabled them to not only succeed and pass their tests, but in many cases, with scores that placed them in "Honors" distinction.
I teach in a GED program. Steck Vaughn wrote the test we currently give until It pays to use this book if only to get familiar with the format of how the questions are asked and what the tester, Steck Vaughn, is looking for in an answer. We have these five books and this will be for my personal use, mainly at home, where I often spend time on lesson plans.
I teach reading, language, and math the most.
Contemporary has a good beginning math series, especially Power 1 and 2, but eventually you need to get to math level that is expected when you learn from Steck Vaughn books.
We always begin in the reading book; because, if you cannot read and interpret the questions you can not learn what you need to pass the GED exams in any other subject.
If a student needs a more simple text for basics then I do recommend the Contemporary group, but then that student must graduate to the Steck Vaughn Series. Decent but not essential In that time, I've put several hundred inmates through the test, and many of them earned high enough scores to get college scholarships once they released.
In those years, I've used this book possibly five times. I think the reading book is too detailed and far too tedious. If a person has decent reading scores, it's really unnecessary to even study this book. I've found anyone with ninth grade reading skills can normally score a or better on the reading test with only cursory instruction if any.
I taught reading with the social studies and science books. Many of the same skills such as main idea or summarization are also covered in those books with a lot more interesting material. I tried to use this book a few times and just didn't find it very useful.
I'm not saying to skip the book entirely. The most useful section in this book covers poetry. Many of my testers have struggled immensely with poetry, and the explanation and lessons on poetry in here are excellent. I'd also suggest the section that covers interpreting plays. That's another trouble spot.
I wouldn't suggest working this book cover to cover unless you're a really poor reader. I would suggest getting this book and cherry picking the areas where you struggle. It's just not as useful as some of the other books.Steck Vaughn Science has been writing in one form or another for most of life.
