The following 5 questions are from the free 25 Question HiSET Mathematics Practice Test. HiSET Quick Test #1 includes the first five questions on the test. HiSET Quick Test #2 includes the next five questions on the test. Because the easy and hard questions have been randomly placed in the HiSET Practice test, these ten questions represent a valid random sample of all 25 test questions.
Unlike the 2014 GED test which is biased towards extremely complex and time consuming problems dealing with the surface area of inverted cones, the subjects on the HiSET test deal with more relevant every day topics that do not involve as much in the way of time consuming calculations. Also unlike the 2014 GED Practice test, the HiSET test includes answers at the end of the test to help students see which problems they got right and which ones they missed.
Another benefit of the HiSET test is that there are five options for each answer instead of the four options on the 2014 GED. This reduces the possibility of lucky guesses having an influence on the result.
