ABSTRACT
A recent study of the correlation of GED practice tests to the GED tests concluded that not all practice tests are valid predictors of success on the GED test. This study, using a larger data base, concludes that all GED practice tests are valid predictors of success on the GED test. Practice test rankings ranging from best to worst for overall performance are included. In addition, practice test ranking by individual subject areas (writing skills, social studies, science, interpreting literature in the arts and mathematics) are also included.
