A: Yes, HiSET® and TASC® are also high school equivalency tests, and you can earn a high school equivalency credential just like you can with the GED® test.
A: Yes. Colleges are now accepting the HiSET® and TASC® Tests. These tests are also listed on the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Not every state has adopted the new tests, but the number of states are increasing every month. You can look to see if your state offers the tests by going to the HiSET® and TASC® websites: www.hiset.ets.org, www.tasctest.com
A: That all depends on you. Each student has a different amount of previous knowledge and time to devote to studying. However, the lessons in “I’m Not Afraid of Math Anymore!” are designed to give you exactly the math that you need to prepare. Every lesson in the GED Math Quick Guide was designed with the GED® math test in mind, and every lesson in the HSE Math book was designed with the HiSET® math test in mind. That’s why there are separate books for the GED math test and the HSE test.
A: Both the HiSET® and the TASC® tests are available as a paper and pencil test or as a computer-based test. The GED® test is only available as a computer-based test. Also, the HiSET® and TASC® tests normally cost less than the GED® test. However, there is the possibility of receiving college credit for high scores on the GED® test.
