Atlanta, Georgia GED
In your search for Georgia GED information pay special attention to web sites that end in the gov, org, or edu extensions (government, non-profit, educational). Any search result on the Internet with a com extension tends to work for a profit. With that basic rule in mind, I did find some Atlanta GED help from government and non-profit organizations, just keep reading.
First Step, Visit the State of Georgia’s GED Site for Information
If you have any question about taking the GED test in Georgia, visiting Georgia’s official website at Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education is essential.
Strangely, according to the State of Georgia’s web site, you do not need to be a resident of Georgia to take the GED test in Georgia:
Residency: You do not need to be a resident of Georgia to be eligible to take the GED tests. You must, however, be a resident of Georgia to receive the $500 HOPE voucher.
Finding GED Help: Using Google and Visiting your Library
Using Google to find Atlanta GED Help
If you search Google for the phrase Atlanta GED you will find lots of help and information. Today (February 1, 2011), I found two listings that seem to be governmental and non-profit related. The first listing for Atlanta GED was for the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education. That listing absolutely should be read by anyone interested in passing the GED test in Georgia.
The second listing was for the Dekalb Technical College where GED preparation courses are free. The Clarkston campus is a northeastern suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.
