NJ Libraries Offer Free Online GED Preparation Assistance

TRENTON – In an effort to assist in the economic recovery of the state, the New Jersey State Library, an affiliate of Thomas Edison State College, has purchased GED Online, a web-based GED preparation program, giving New Jersey residents free access with a library card. The online study tool covers all five of the subjects tested by the GED exam: writing, social studies, science, reading and mathematics. This resource is now available at all New Jersey public libraries.

Developed by McGraw Hill, GED Online provides step-by-step, interactive instruction, and prepares users to take the GED test through a series of customizable lessons, study plans and quizzes. The tool also helps users identify strengths and weaknesses through assessments, which measure student mastery, and offers remediation lessons for students requiring additional instruction

“GED Online is an important addition to our suite of online resources,” said State Librarian Norma Blake. “It provides the instruction needed to give a better understanding of the GED test sections and gives job seekers and others the knowledge to take the test with confidence.”

Those interested can contact the New Jersey State Library at GEDOnline@njstatelib.org to gain access to the resource or visit their local public library to obtain a library card and log-in information. Once log-in information is provided, users can access the resource from any computer. For more information, visit www.njworks.org.
