Listed in this post are all GED prep facilities and testing sites in the Long Beach area. California is using the GED test for its high school equivalency testing program.
Additionally, the state introduced the HiSET exam for that purpose.
The GED® and HiSET® exams can be taken online or at one of California’s official testing centers.
The exams are for adults without a high school diploma and offer another chance to acquire an equivalent degree.
The GED contains four separate tests in the fields of
- Social Studies, incl. Biology and Geography
- Science, incl. Chemistry and Physics
You can take one of the four GED subtests (modules) at a time and in your preferred order. There’s no need to complete it all in one take.
The HiSET has five tests (literacy is split up into separate reading and writing tests) that can also be done separately.
The GED tests must be taken on a computer, while the HiSET exam is available on paper and on a computer.

Online Proctored GED and HiSET Testing
The HiSET and GED exams can be taken online as well. Until recently, if you wanted to get your California HSE diploma, you needed to appear in person at one of the state’s official testing centers.
That has changed, though. The GED and HiSET are now also available in an online, proctored version. To learn more about these new options, check out The online HiSET test, and for more GED testing information, check out -> The online GED test.
