The General Educational Development Test (GED) has become a minimum requirement for most jobs. But passing the test is a big struggle for around 700,000 of the adults who take it each year for economic reasons.

The GED test consists of four modules; each module costs $32 in the state of Florida. While there are many eager adults who wish to obtain a GED can
