EXTRA: Suggested Reading

Reading at home is the best thing you can do to pass the GED/HiSET. You can read whatever interests you. Anything you read is beneficial. Like history? Read that. Like science fiction? Read that. Magazine articles, comic books, newspapers. Anything you read improves your skills. Try to shoot for 20 minutes a day!
