NEW YORK, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Professional, a leader in test preparation content, announces the publication of the McGraw-Hill Education TASC, the most authoritative guide to the new high school equivalency exam, TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™. It is the only book to contain authentic TASC test questions from CTB/McGraw-Hill, the creator of the TASC test. The TASC test is a Common Core-aligned high school equivalency assessment that provides access, quality and affordability for the more than 40 million adults in the U.S. without a high school degree or equivalency.
McGraw-Hill Education TASC provides students with a comprehensive review and practice in all five exam subject areas: Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Each chapter features a pre-test that helps readers identify strengths and weaknesses before study. There are complete reviews of key test content, exercises to reinforce new skills, and full-length TASC practice test sections in the new test format, with complete explanations for every question, and valuable test-taking tips and strategies. The print and eBook editions are each $20. CTB/McGraw-Hill also offers test takers a complimentary practice test item sampler and an official TASC Test Readiness Assessment that is available in print and online.
"Postsecondary degrees continue to be a prerequisite for some of the fastest-growing industries in our economy, and the accessibility of solutions like the TASC test will be increasingly vital to expanding career opportunities and improving the quality of life across the country," said Ellen Haley, president of CTB/McGraw-Hill. "Preparation is essential to this process, which is why we're so proud to release McGraw-Hill Education TASC."
