Preparation Materials

GED preparation materials are available in most public libraries, in many bookstores, in adult education centers (free classes) or on the Internet by searching "GED".

The GED® Publisher Program recognizes GED® test-aligned content from publishers who develop curriculum materials for the GED® test. To ensure that materials meet 100% of GED® test objectives, a professional content review organization has evaluated each product’s alignment to GED® test objectives. Alignment is determined at a subject area level rather than at a publisher level. Many publishers are currently in the review process, however, not all content is subject to review at this time (including review content and practice tests). Publishers that have achieved 100% alignment with the GED® test with at least one of their products will be designated with a GED® Content Aligned logo.
