### GED: 50 Math Skills You Need to Know to Pass the GED Math Test

A great deal for only \$5!

Taking the GED Mathematics test can be very stressful if you do not properly prepare.

In my 10+ years of teaching GED prep, I have learned that many GED candidates do not have the math skills required to feel confident to take the math test.

And confidence is the KEY! For some individuals, a quick brush up is all that they need, while others may require direct instruction or tutoring to get the GED math help they require.

A good math GED workbook is also always a must!

There are 50 skills that are necessary to know in order to pass the GED Mathematics test. 31 are listed below. They are:

* Make estimates
* Arrange decimals
* Order of operations
* Solve problems using decimals (+, -, x, ÷)
* +, -, x, ÷ decimals
* Compare fractions, decimals, and percents
