Peterson's Master the™ HiSET® Exam puts students on the path to successfully navigate the HiSET exam, an alternative test to the GED® Test that is offered in 21 states (including California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Texas) and five U.S. territories. Two complete practice tests simulate the test-day experience and provide detailed answer explanations for all questions. Readers will find detailed reviews of the Language Arts–Reading, Language Arts–Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies subtests. Also included are two full-length practice tests—both with detailed answer explanations for every question, a helpful overview of the vocabulary students are expected to know, and valuable focus on the critical-thinking skills that are applied throughout the exam.
