Prior to testing, adult students need to set up a personalized account and register for the test through GED.com. The personal GED page is also where students can pay for and take the "GED Ready" practice tests in each of the four subjects (Math, Reasoning Through Language Arts, Science, Social Studies), as well as view test results with same-day scoring.
