The book offers two full practice tests and detailed walk-throughs and explanations for every solution. In addition to the essential GED basics, readers will benefit from general information regarding test preparation--from registering and studying effectively to managing time during the exam.

I found the overall book helpful, but found many mistakes in the math section. Page 306 question 2 is solved for northeast not north-northeast. Page 315 question 10. Mean should be $485.59 not $485.39. Page 318 question 8 is wrong all over. Page 344 question 15 doesn't have the answer given in the answer sheet available to pick on the question. Page 347, answer to question 9 is 2 not 3. Page 351 answer to question 23 is wrong. That is all in the first part of the first practice test. I'm no mathematician and maybe my stuff is wrong too, but come on.
