I Failed My GED Math Test! What do I do now?

Have you heard these words before? Perhaps you have said these words.

What do you do when you take the GED math test and fail? What is your next step?

I have worked with many students who have taken and passed the GED math test. I have also worked with many students who have taken and failed the test.

The GED Math test is perhaps the toughest of the five GED tests. It is by far, in my opinion, the one test that you need to study the most in order to pass.

If you have taken and failed the test, do not despair! You are not alone. What you need to do is persevere and keep on studying. Now, more than ever, you need to complete your GED and move on to the next phase of your educational career!

With the economy the way it is, it is becoming harder and harder to find a good job (let alone ANY job) without a diploma.

Grab a book, any GED math book, a study buddy and keep plugging away. It is going to take time and in some cases alot of time. You may need to start in the area of fractions. Most students do. Be positive and take control of your math learning!

Good luck!

Dont give up! This will be my fourth Math re-write! I did awesome on all my other exams.Math just makes us think harder. Practice makes perfect! Not all of us are gifted in certain areas.

I am a female who owns a constuction company and a Roofing company. Can I do math for that? You betcha! I just have brains in other areas like business.

My mission is to get my Realtors licence to balance the companies that I have. In order to do that I need a GED to get into Real Estate. Ok, so I failed 3 times.. The world still goes on and so will I! Will I pass it? Of course and will I know more in the end? You bet and so will you!

To all the comments ahead of me.. Dont give up your only going to come out a super star!! You get what you put into it! God doesnt make junk! Blessings folks!
