    The most noticeable change is that the test is now computer based--a transition that requires test-takers to have strong typing and computer skills. The new exam covers additional topics in the Math and Science sections and includes "blended" subject matter within the sections, meaning test-takers will see science questions that require math to produce a numerical answer or social studies questions that require essay-writing skills, etc. Test-takers will also find all question types used on the new computer format. The new Barrons How to Prepare for the GED Test offers test-takers a guided approach to taking and passing the exam by building on the skills they already have.
