Practice Test 1: Science

The Science test consists of multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, drop-down, drag-and-drop, hot-spot, and Short Answer items intended to measure general concepts in science. The questions are based on short passages that may include a graph, chart, or figure. Study the information given and then answer the question(s) following it. Refer to the passage information as often as necessary in answering the questions, but remember that you have a time limit, and you should try to spend as little time on any item as you can and still get the correct answer.

You have 90 minutes to complete this section of the GED test, including answering two Short Answer items, which should take about 10 minutes each.

The explanations are a good review of the techniques we discuss throughout the book.
