Practice for GED Language Arts, Writing
This resource has practice questions for Part I of the GED Language Arts, Writing Test (the multiple-choice section). All of the questions are like the ones you will have to answer on the GED (all practice questions are based on the 202 GED series). This resource is divided into the four subject areas tested by this part of the GED: organization, sentence structure, usage, and mechanics. At the end of each group of questions are answers and explanations, and suggested resources.
This resource also contains the GED essay game, which will help you practice for Part II of the GED Language Arts, Writing Test (the essay). The game takes you through the process of writing a complete GED essay. As you go through the game, pay attention to the areas that are most difficult for you.
