The GED Reasoning Through Language Arts Test: Language: Grammar and Punctuation Review

The GED Reasoning Through Language Arts Test will not directly test your knowledge of grammar terms. You won't need to define words like "adverb" or "gerund"! Instead, you will encounter drop-down questions that require you to choose the best and clearest way to complete sentences. Practice this list of vocabulary to help reinforce your understanding of proper grammar and punctuation.
