Each satellite is accompanied by a helpful Exercise book that offers extra support for each subject. What's more, the entire program is easy to navigate through. Progress charts help adults identify areas where more instruction is needed, and all the components are correlated for easy access! GED test-taking skills are presented throughout the text. Grammar section includes usage, sentence structure, mechanics, and editing. Special section on Writing Skills, Part 2: The Essay integrates the stages of process writing with high-interest GED-style topics. The Cambridge GED Program Exercise books correlate directly to the Satellites, and supply adult learners with an abundance of practice in Social Studies, Science, Interpreting Literature and the Arts, Math and Writing.
