    What's up all-

    Just wanted to ask a quick question, hopefully i am asking in the right section if not pardon myself.

    Would like to know what would be the best GED preparation study book for 2009-2010 i should purchase?

    I was thinking either buying preston master the GED 2010 or Barrons.

    Which book would you guy's buy? and tell why, Thank you all.

    Soap Box:

    You lost me at your screen name. It will not matter what book you buy if you maintain that attitude toward mathematics. If this attitude extends to your other academic efforts, or to your other family members, why even bother?

    To your question:

    I doubt that the book selection matters. If you decide to succeed, any collection of practice problems and a good, motivated tutor should prove sufficient.

    Social Statement:

    GED is a good thing, but it is harder and less useful than simply graduating from high school. Recommendation to ALL who are contemplating dropping out of high school ==> Don't. Figure out why you are not succeeding -- maybe change your behavior -- fix the problem and graduate.

    There is neither contradiction nor discouragement in there. If you read any of either of those, read it again until it leaves your mind.

    Your success on the GED, or the success of your family members, has FAR more to do with attitude and very little to do with the practice book you might choose. Just get a book and start working. That is how to succeed.

    If you did not do well at mathematics in high school, there is little reason to expect that you will magically succeed now. Get some help. College students of mathematics LOVE to do this kind of stuff. Most work pretty cheap.

    Just go and get one. They're all much the same when it comes down to it.
