The GED is a computer-based examination of General Educational Development.
The cost for the entire test is $120 (each of four parts is $30). The GED Testing site is at Danville Area Community College.
The GED test consists of 4 sections including Reasoning Through Language Arts (150 minutes), Mathematical Reading (115 minutes), Science (90 minutes), & Social Studies (90 minutes).
Classes to prepare for the test can be taken through DACC's Adult Education Program.
