1900 Dallas Dropouts per Month search the Internet for Help
I was a bit shocked when I learned from Google that 1900 people a month search Google for the phrase “Dallas GED”. That’s why, after writing about the NYC GED, the Chicago GED, and the Los Angeles GED, I turned my attention to writing something about getting a GED in Dallas. I do hope this article helps you. If you have friends in Houston, here’s Houston GED info.
First Step, Visit the State of Texas Official GED Site for Information
If you have any question about taking the GED test in the state of Texas, visiting Texas’s official website at Texas State GED is essential. So far, I have studied the New York and California state websites regarding GED information. The easiest website to date has been the New York State GED web page.
Official Texas GED Test centers took a while to find on the Internet, click herefor more information. It’s unclear how current the Texas GED test center page is because there’s no last update stamp on it, but it’s a seemingly long list of possible test centers.
At this time I can’t easily find a list of GED preparation centers in Texas.
