Sure, it makes sense that strengthening your reading skills will help with the Reading and Writing sections of your HSE exam, but did you know that reading is the basis for the Social Studies and Science sections as well?
The GED, HiSET, and TASC test makers do not expect you to roll in with tons of facts and figures. They don’t expect you to bank info. on World Wars or memorize the Periodic Table. What they DO want you to show is your ability to read and think critically.
If you are struggling with where to begin your prep, reading is always a great place to start because it supports ALL areas of study. Know that every minute you devote to becoming a strong reader is an investment in obvious AND not so obvious ways.
TIP: Don’t forget that your ability to read and understand test directions is just as important as reading through and understanding the question passages. In our recent coaching session, Test Smart, we discussed this specific skill. It’s an important one, so if you missed the session, just click the link above.
