22. Fast Track Help With Exam
You can retake the tests as often as needed. HOWEVER, keep in mind each test is different, so retaking a test doesn't allow you to remember answers.
If you need an education, please consider our Traditional classroom program instead. 

back to top

23. Fast Track Test Length
Test length is entirely up to you.  If you know the material, the 250 questions and essay can be completely within the same week.
We do recommend you use our study guide to ensure success in this program.  Doing so can make the process take much longer but you will be rewarded with better grades.

24. Fast Track VS. Traditional
We have two options for students :

1) Fast Track -  Adults can complete our Fast Track exam and become a high school graduate.  
This is not a diploma but a certificate, demonstrating you have successfully completed the requirements to become a recognized high school graduate.
Learn More 

2) Traditional - Enroll in our full time classroom environment to learn all the courses you missed. In compliance with accreditor guidelines, no school can issue a DIPLOMA unless the student is enrolled in and has completed actual CLASSES. Our classrooms are ideal for those adult student that wish to receive their full education and then earn a High School Diploma.

25. Fast Track VS. GED
The GED certificate is only administered from GED testing centers.  It is not available online.

An alternative to the GED Certificate is our Fast Track Certificate.
It is similar to the GED exam in that both are graduation certificates (not diplomas), both require 250 questions and an written essay.

We offer 3 choices for you to graduate:
1) Diploma =    Take online classes (1 or more semesters) to earn your diploma
2) Fast Track = Take online exam to earn your graduate certificate suitable for college entrance
3) GED Prep = Take prep classes and take the exam at your local testing center

*The Fast Track certificate is recognized by colleges and employers as demonstrating that you completed high school. In accordance with our accreditor, this program is a certificate and not a diploma.  Accreditors do not allow a "diploma" to be issued by taking an exam.  Keep in mind even the GED is not a diploma (GED stands for General Equivalency Development).

33. About ATB Prep
Most community colleges (and many other vocational and private schools) require new students to complete an assessment test to ensure they are ready for college level classes. This assessment test, often called an “Ability To Benefit” test (or ATB) is required for all students that have been out of school for more than a year. However most people are caught off guard and not ready for this test, and thus it may not be an adequate representation of your skills. Brush up on your skills first with our ATB PREP (Free to all graduates) to ensure you aren’t stuck taking an expensive college class that isn’t suitable for your needs.

34. About Test Prep - SAT, ACT, GED, State Exit Exams, etc

We offer a full set of pre-grad and post-grad testing preparation services. Visit our programs link at the top of our main site for details, or find additional test prep courses at the Test Prep website today for complete details.
