The goal of online GED classes reviews for 2014 is to help you become more informed so you can make the right choice if you are looking for online GED classes. I’m really happy that nowadays new technology allows everybody to benefit from online GED classes. Today GED preparation classes are available for everybody at any time and from any place. Not everybody is in the position to attend GED classes in a physical location and in the old days this was a serious obstacle. Today, you just need a computer and access to internet and of course a good online program. The new 2014 GED test is entirely computer based, so it makes sense to take an online GED preparation course. Here we will review available online classes to help you make a well informed choice.
What is available these days? I am interested in online classes that will prepare for the GED exam so you can become all set to take on the GED exam without the need to show up at a physical school for the preparation classes. Additionally, I focus on programs that prepare you well for the new 2014 GED examination.
I based the online GED classes reviews on research done on the internet. When I check it out I found a few free online GED classes and several paid GED preparation programs.
The best known is GED Academy, an online GED class that guarantees that you pass the exam. This online program is frequently bought by schools and offered to students in the classroom. Fortunately, nowadays the program is also available for individual students. GED Academy is really great, you set your own schedule and you decide how many hours per week you want to put in learning. Most students pass the GED exam in 4 to 5 weeks by studying every day, or in 3 to 4 months if they study just one hour a week. You won’t need to leave your current job, as this course is easily done after hours or on the weekends! It’s all up to you.
They have everything you need available online: GED practice tests and teaching lessons in all subjects, GED smart book, calculator and even your own private tutor and forum. The GED Academy is recommended by the official GED testing service for 2014. The price is $189. Click on the link to read my whole review of the GED Academy.
This online course will take you 6 weeks and the lessons take place 2 x a week on Wednesday and Friday.They start a new class approximately once a month, and the class is instructor based. Before you start the course you will be able to check your knowledge to identify your weak and your strong points. This is really a good idea because it helps you to understand what you need to focus on.
The price is $99 for 6 weeks/24 hours in total.
The course is best suited for people who want to refresh their knowledge before they take the GED test. The Edu2Go online program is also adjusted to the 2014 GED test and listed by the official GED testing.
DCS GED® Prep Online
This program has been around for 10 years, and it’s supposed to be the first ever online GED class offered to students. Unfortunately, as much as I respect it, I need to say this program is so old fashioned that I lost interest in following the lessons pretty fast. But it’s cheap and might work for more motivated students. It’s also listed on the website of the official GED testing service. The price is $65 and a Spanish version is available.
P12 from Aztec Software
This is another program often found in schools and GED preparation centers, and now it’s offered to individual students too. Aztec’s presentation of test items will use the same interactions required in the GED to ensure mastery of the technology—
• Drag & drop, hot spot, cloze items, short answer, fill in the blank, multiple choice, multiple selection
• Essay prompts with word processor, extended responses
It’s a program you will typically find in the school lab. Maybe it’s worth to add that many instructional modules can come with Spanish audio. Price $50 per month.
Aztec Software /P12 is compatible with the new 2014 GED® exam.
Free GED Online classes
There are also free GED programs such as: Learning Express 2014. This course is also compatible with the the new 2014 GED test.
The best known course is GED forFree and 4Tests. At this moment it’s not known how compatible online programs are with the new 2014 test.
When engaging yourself in a free online prep website, please keep in mind that the owners can publish free tests thanks to advertisers and most of the time they are so called lead generation for colleges and other schools. This means that you may receive offers from schools etc. Don’t expect fireworks, you get what you pay for.
