When the time comes to begin pursuing a career, oftentimes, especially in business-related fields, employers consider applicants with high school diplomas more seriously than those without. Even if the reason for leaving high school was one of necessity or urgency, having a high school diploma or equivalency is extremely valuable in the job application process.

General Education Development, more commonly known as GED, is a high school equivalency credential. The GED system was formed in 1942 to help World War II veterans receive diploma equivalency as they re-entered the workforce. Initially it was available only to war veterans, but it later became available for all adults.

The Benefits of Home Study Materials

For the convenience of those who work during the day or have other important things to attend to (such as family or health issues), GED tools are now available for home study. There exists an endless supply of helpful study texts, practice tests, and other beneficial information. Along with study booklets and practice tests, there are websites that can provide the same level of quality study materials.

These resources are available through local bookstores and online stores that sell the physical materials. Certain GED study websites offer online study materials, correspondence courses, practice tests, and other resources that can be accessed in one's own schedule. This is beneficial especially when your schedule doesn't fit into that of a local class offered, or where it may not be easy to find study resources locally.
