    Did you ask about getting a tutor? If paying one is a concern, there's probably a high school or community college student who would tutor you, maybe as an exchange thing -- a young mom who will tutor if you sit for her child once a week or a guy who will tutor if you bake him cookies and brownies now and then.

    I'm in the Chicago suburbs and know libraries and community/city colleges have a GED learning program called "Learning Express Library." If I remember correctly, this can be used even at home. Check with your local library about this or another GED computer program, plus the library should have several study guides with sample tests (or buy one at a bookstore or from Amazon). The library may even have a list of tutors, or can suggest something. Call or visit the reference desk.

    [For anyone reading this thread:

    The standard scores for the GED tests range from a minimum of 200 to a maximum of 800 on each test. To pass, 60% is required. This translates to a score of at least 410 on each GED test to pass it, and an overall average score of 450 for the five-test battery. The score for any single test cannot be below 410, but if some are lower, other GED tests need to be well above 410 so that the scores for all five GED tests average out to at least 450.]

    There are often community GED prep at various civic centers, education centers and other places. And perhaps you need to take the GED course again, I know many people it takes several times
