My boys have finished the US Constitituion study guides and seem quite ready for the test, but I"m finding that the tests that I found on-line are all "practice tests" and are not long enough to quality for the exam.  I can't seem to find access to a real test.  Any ideas where I can get the actual test?  Today I'll try contacting our local high school to see if they can give me a suggestion.  All I've been able to find so far is that our community college offers a 4 session review followed by the test which qualifies for GED completion.  I'm not crazy about that idea, because they don't really need the review, yet it would get it out of the way in case they decide to take classes there in the future..  I'm kicking myself for not preparing myself well enough for this, but life kept getting in the way the last couple of months and I wasn't as careful as I usually am concerning this class.

I assume this is for Illinois?

Here's a link to a test...but it might be the practice test:

As a HS'er, you probably just need to put on their transcript that they took it.

What did your high school say?

What if you asked the CC if they could just take the test and skip the review part?  OR call the CC's testing center and see if they proctor it...they may also know where to get a copy...but they must have it since they give it for the GED.  :-)
