Practice Test 2: Mathematical Reasoning

In 115 minutes, you have to solve a series of questions involving general mathematical skills and problem solving. These questions may be based on short passages, graphs, charts, or figures. You must do the first five questions without a calculator, but after that, you can use a calculator for the rest of the test. You also have at your fingertips, a list of formulas to help you with some of the questions. Remember that the calculator and list of formulas aren’t a magic solution. You have to know how to use them.

Memorizing the formulas and knowing how and when to use them will speed things up and can give you valuable time at the end to do any questions you had trouble with. Answer the easy question first to give yourself more time at the end for the more difficult questions.

remember.eps Unless you require accommodations, you’ll take the actual GED test on a computer, where you use the mouse and the keyboard to indicate your answer. We formatted the questions and answer choices in this book to make them appear as similar as possible to what you’ll see on the computerized test, but we had to retain some A, B, C, D choices and provide an answer sheet for you to mark your answers.
