GED Prep Online

Why do you need your GED?

  • To go to college
  • To get a better job
  • To be promoted at your current job
  • To qualify for job training
  • To write to Family and Friends
  • Read the newspaper

We are continually working to meet the needs of the "Adult Learner" by introducing innovative methods of learning, to that extent; we are delighted to say that Mercer County Community College's Adult Basic Education Department has expanded its services to include GED Prep Online preparation. Recognizing the need for traditional teaching methods, meeting nontraditional methods of preparation, we are attempting to broaden the horizons of all our students.

    Q. What if I donít have a computer?
    Not to worry! If you do not have a computer of your own, there are places you can go. First, you may want to go to your local library and use a public computer. Second, if a relative or close friend has a computer, ask if you can use it. Or simply visit the JKC or WWC libraries during hours of operation. Our labs are available to you!
