dont sweat it dude. I took my GED test a couple months ago. Its not as hard as you think. honestly the pre test was harder than the actually GED test. I aced it, and I suck at math and I did great on it, and i guessed on half of them. but hey at least you have your family backin you on it. My family looked at me like I should be shot. all of my cousins graduated high school with great grades, and almost all of them went to/ are in college. But none of them every offered me any help when i was struggling in school (and 2 of my uncles are teachers). But just stay dont freak out about it.

Honestly, if you can legitimately pass the 8th grade (regular classes, not special ed), the G.E.D. should pose no problem.

Good luck anyway

Good luck bro. Just study as hard as you can and relax. Remember don't second guess your answers without actually doing work to make sure they're wrong. (most of the time people are right on the first one)

Good to hear you're making up for past mistakes. I wish you well.

when i took my ged, over 12 years ago, i felt exactly like you do. i kept thinking how embarrasing it would be to fail. once i started taking the test i relaxed and realized that i knew the material. study hard and you should do just fine.

Don't sweat it. You'll be fine, bro. Do a few things in preparation.

Wake up an hour or so early. Make yourself some breakfast. If you drink coffee, have a cup. If you smoke, have a cigarette. Do whatever you need to do to make sure you're relaxed.

And now that I typed all of this, I'm pretty sure you posted this last night and you probably won't read this prior to taking the test.

Regardless...good luck! Let us know how it goes!

lol thanks guys. i took my second part today and i got my scores from thursday and i did good. i just gotta wait til i get today's results before i celebrate though. i got a 99% on social studies, 95% on reading and 93% on science. You know its not that impressive to ace a ged but im still proud. im glad i prepared. i just hope i did well today. i thought before i got my results in 5 to 10 business days but if i go online i can get them there too.

No, I'm saying if you are at least as smart as someone who passed the 8th grade, you're smart enough to pass the GED.

good luck man, and good for you. You should be proud that you are trying to better yourself, and as you put it, make up for past mistakes. it's never too late.
