Testimony from a New Adult Education Teacher Rebecca Clark
"The I’m Not Afraid Publications curriculum is comprehensive and easy to understand. It provides lessons, videos, and foldables that allow students to clearly see the concepts. Our school has just begun offering GED®/HiSet® sessions, and it is easy to teach and understand even for teachers without a math background. It is written in such a way to give students the confidence and skills they need to pass the test. I highly recommend this for any school wishing to find a curriculum to prepare students for the GED® or HiSet® test. It is a wonderful and easy-to-follow course! " - Rebecca Clark, GED®/HiSet® Instructor, Metro Technology Center, Oklahoma City, OK
NEW: A Quick Guide to the HiSET Math Test
"Many students have had success with my original version of math for the HiSET® Math Test, but in the spring of 2023, I felt it was time to update the book to more closely align with the latest HiSET® Math Official Practice Tests. Our results at the Oklahoma City Community College have exceeded my expectations! Not only have our upper-level students typically been scoring at the college-ready level, we have even had lower-level students scoring significantly above the minimum passing score. And all of that has been achieved in about half the time as before! Like all my other textbooks, this book is available in a PRINTABLE/PROJECTABLE version as well as a pre-printed book." - Susan E. Bernard, OCCC Coordinator of High School Equivalency Preparation and author of the "I'm Not Afraid... Anymore" series

"I purchased Susan's book, "I'm Not Afraid of Math Anymore!" about three years ago. This was one of the best books I have ever purchased. As a GED® instructor, we always need resources that are simple. I love the way Susan shows examples and illustrations of every math problem. Her examples and explanations of how to solve the problems were so simple and easy to understand. Her book allowed me to better understand how to solve math problems such as equations, proportions, and geometry. I also loved the color coding, the activities, and the words of encouragements. Keep up the good work, Susan! " - Angela Payne, Instructional Specialist-Coach, Dallas County Community College District

"Susan Bernard’s 'I’m Not Afraid…Anymore' I have taught GED classes for Madisonville Community College for 22 years now. Throughout my career, your series of “I’m Not Afraid of Math Anymore!”b> has been my go-to for math magic.
