This is a complete overview of GED prep locations and test centers in the San Jose area. California is using two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and HiSET.
Both the GED and HiSET can now be taken online as well. Check below to read more about online proctored GED and HiSET testing.
The HiSET® and GED® tests give adults who quit high school prematurely the chance to get hold of an equivalent degree.
Both tests measure knowledge at a level that compares to that of graduating HS seniors.
The GED comes with four separate tests (modules) in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies that can be taken one at a time.
The HiSET includes five subject tests as the Literacy Sections come with separate reading and writing tests. These subtests may, if wished, also be done separately.
The GED is administered exclusively on a computer while the HiSET is offered in both a computerized and paper-based version.

Online GED or HiSET testing
Test-takers looking to earn their California HSE diploma can now sit for the GED or HiSET exam also in an online format. Until recently, online HiSET and GED testing was no option; it simply was not available. You were required to come to an official, state-designated testing site and sit for the exams in person.
That has now changed! The GED and HiSET are now offered in an online, proctored format as well. To learn more about these developments, check out these posts: online HiSET proctored testing, and for the GED exam: online proctored GED testing.
