0 Reviews
Canadian men and women preparing to take the GED High School Equivalency Exam will find specially focused help in this heavily revised and updated manual, written exclusively for them. Like the U.S. edition, it contains a full-length diagnostic test, and two full-length practice exams with questions answered and explained. However, the comprehensive subject review sections reflect Canadian-specific information and topics, and the practice tests reflect recent actual GED exams given in Canada. For instance, this book s math review section uses the metric system for weights and measures; the social studies review section deals with geography, history, and social issues and data from a Canadian perspective; and the book s spelling and grammar conventions follow British-English style. Questions on the diagnostic test are presented with answer keys, answer analyses, and self-appraisal charts.
