This post contains a complete listing of GED prep classes and testing sites in the Reno area. Nevada offers two options for High School Equivalency testing, the GED and HiSET exams.
Both tests are available at state-designated test centers and online. Check below for more information on online HiSET and GED testing.
The exams measure proficiency at a level that compares to that of graduating high school seniors.
The GED® is fully computer-formatted whereas the HiSET® is offered both on-computer and on-paper.
GED testing is done via four separate modules (subtests) in math, science, literacy, and social studies.
You can take one (or more) of the four GED modules at a time. No need to finish the GED battery in one take.
The HiSET exam has five subtests as the literacy section is split up into separate writing and reading tests. You may also take these subtests individually.

Introducing online HiSET and GED tests
It used to be that GED and HiSET testing was done exclusively at state-designated Nevada HSE testing sites. Online testing did simply not exist. But recently, we saw the launch of online testing options for both the HiSET and the GED exam.
To learn all about these online proctored testing options, visit the following posts. For more information on the new online HiSET test, check out Welcoming the online HiSET test, and for more information on the online GED test, visit The online GED test introduced.
