Note-taking system

You can take and save notes as you progress through the Covcel Online GED® Course. Then, you can download and print these notes to extend your learning outside of the Covcel course.

Note-taking is a helpful tool to retain your knowledge, especially for students who have a predominantly kinesthetic learning style.

How It Works

When you open a lesson, on the right side of the screen, you will see the button “Take Notes.” Click on it, and a small note-taking screen will open. You can move this screen, change its size and, of course, write notes. All notes will be saves on the “My Notes” page.

You can see the ‘Take notes” button on every lesson page.


You can see all your saved notes on My Notes page


How long do I need to prepare to take the GED exam?

Well, that depends. You will understand that this, for example, depends on your earlier education and how much time you can dedicate to learning.

We assume you are motivated, and if you study for 3-5 times a week for about 45 minutes each time then it can take 2-3 months to get a GED® diploma. If you would learn once a week, it will take 6-9 months to get ready for the GED test.

How to use your 3-Month Prep Course

Everyone has their own way of learning, so you might want to start with taking practice tests and learning only those topics that you got incorrect answers on. These topics are indicated at the end of the practice tests.

Or you might start by taking lessons and then taking the practice tests. It’s up to you. Keep in mind, if you discover that three months is not enough time to prepare for the GED® test, you can always renew your subscription and receive a 20% discount!

Where to begin with GED Prep

You should choose the subject that’s easiest for you. In general, the goal is to go through a series of small successes to develop confidence in your capabilities. We call this the principle of “small steps.”

Ask yourself: what topics are easier for me: Math, Language, Science, or Social Studies? Most people choose the GED® Language Arts subtest as their first exam.
