Looking for GED classes in New York City, hopefully this article will help. I wrote a similar article entitled New York City GED, please check out that article also.
I love New York City
Before I begin, let me say I live in Chicago and I love NYC. I’ve been to NYC only 3 times, and each time was memorable. And now that I write this blog on helping people study and pass the GED, I have found that many people who visit come from New York City and its boroughs. So thanks NYC, this GED article is for you.
First Step, Visit New York State’s Official GED Site for Information
If you have any question about taking the GED test in New York State, visiting New York State’s official website at New York State GED Web Site is essential.
Finding GED Tests and Help in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island
Research Yahoo and Bing for NYC GED Info
In my previous article on the New York City GED, I focused on using Google to find GED help in New York City. Let’s focus on the Yahoo and Bing search engines to see what help they offer.
Even though you’re a high school dropout, you are Internet sophisticated, and that’s important. I suggest you use your Internet browser to open up 3 windows at the same time so you can compare the search results for NYC GED for Google, Yahoo, and Bing. And, you should also know that what I am finding today will be different than what you find on your computer because Google, Yahoo, and Bing change their search results daily. So you will need to research things.
Searching www.Yahoo.com for NYC GED Test Centers and GED Preparation Centers
One excellent source of GED help is CUNY, the City University of New York. Go to CUNY’s GED programs to learn about their special free GED preparation courses. Here’s a quote from CUNY’s website shown below:
The City University of New York (CUNY) offers free GED and Adult Basic Education courses at 13 of its campuses. You can take classes in all 5 boroughs and there are options for day, night, and weekend study.
However, CUNY doesn’t seem to have GED testing centers, but free GED training at 13 campuses is wonderful. Call them directly at 212.794.5302 for more information on the GED.
Searching www.Bing.com for NYC GED Test Centers and GED Preparation Centers
As mentioned earlier, the three major search engines of Google, Yahoo, and Bing give slightly different results on different days. But today when searching www.Bing.com for the phrase NYC GED I found one search result that caught my eye: a scholarly report by Jacqueline L. Cook submitted in June 2008 to the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development. Ms. Cook’s article for GED Reform Initiative for New York City is detailed and has many important nuggets of GED information. It’s probably more for GED educators than GED students. But I found Table 1 in her document disturbing: One in Five Americans older than 16 years of age are high school dropouts.
On this day, December 23, 2010, I didn’t find anything uniquely different on Bing that I hadn’t seen on Google or Yahoo.
Researching NYC GED: Research is Worth It
If you are a high school dropout from NYC, research the New York State GED Web Site, research Google/Yahoo/Bing for different information, and finally read my other article on New York City GED that contains specific GED help on the borough where you live.
