Cerro Coso is once again offering a General Educational Development (GED) Exam Preparation course, EDUC C005, online for those who want to take the GED. The GED Exam changed in 2014 with greater focus on in-depth thinking skills. The GED Exam Prep course provides additional practice to help pass the exam.
Through the self-paced course materials, students will be assessed to identify specific areas for personalized practice. Practice may be completed online at home or in a Cerro Coso campus computer lab. Students will be provided with frequent feedback and additional help throughout the course. Once a student completes all materials, students will be given the GED Exam Practice before taking the actual GED Exam.
Interested individuals may enroll in GED Exam Practice at any time throughout the fall 2014 semester. The course is a zero unit/no fee course; however, enrolled students are expected to demonstrate regular practice with the available materials. All required materials are available online through the course website and supplemental materials and resources are listed within the website.
New students to Cerro Coso may register for the course (EDUC C005) online through the Cerro Coso website’s list of scheduled courses or register at a local campus in Ridgecrest, Lake Isabella, Mammoth Lakes, or Bishop. Login information will be provided once a student is enrolled in the course.
The GED exam is administered directly through Pearson VUE for $140 or $35 for each section of the exam. Pearson VUE is the leading provider of licensing examinations for State and Federal regulatory bodies and the only California sanctioned company with the ability to administer the GED. Pearson VUE offers the GED exam at Cerro Coso’s Ridgecrest and Bishop Campuses and other locations in Bakersfield and Lancaster.
