I don't mean to be rude, I know this is meant to be funny, but *I* took the GED test and I promise you that every single one of those is made up.Mom to three girls, one white german shepherd, one chihuahua foster puppy, three cockatiels, too many fish and not enough chickens.02-15-2011, 03:40 PM #3

GED tests are multiple choice. If these questions were true based on the way teenagers answer when they don't know, the answers would like like A instead of C or D instead of B.
You really think that "What happens to a boy when he reaches puberty?" might be a real GED question?
Or "What is a seizure?"
What is a seizure, btw? How many people can answer that to any degree of accuracy? It's a medical term describing a complicated neurological phenomenon that we don't even fully understand, and you think they're going to put that on a multiple choice GED test?
How about "Explain what causes the tides in the oceans?" Why the nonessential phrase "in the oceans?" Are there some other tides somewhere that have a different explanation?
How do you keep milk from going sour?? What school system or GED test would ask this?Mom to three girls, one white german shepherd, one chihuahua foster puppy, three cockatiels, too many fish and not enough chickens.02-16-2011, 07:57 AM #5

I also took the GED test, and passed it, and there were no questions like that on it. I even worked as a teacher's aide with a program to help people prepare for the GED test and I graded all the practice tests they took . The answers were all multiple choice. Of course that was from 1984-1994. Maybe the tests have changed since then.02-16-2011, 08:22 AM #6
