GED Test Preparation Program

Montgomery College's GED® Test Preparation Program is for adults in Maryland who need to get their High School Diploma. GED Test Preparation Classes include three levels. ABE and Pre-GED level classes are free of charge. The cost of GED test preparation classes depends on the number of class hours and ranges from $40-$65. 

  1. Adult Basic Education (ABE) is for those students who need basic skills in reading and math.
  2. Pre-GED Test Preparation is for students who have stronger skills, but need more work in all of the content areas.
  3. GED Test Preparation is for students who are ready to focus on the academic areas covered by the official State test.
