Mohave Community College is offering 12-week classes on its Lake Havasu City campus to better prepare students to take the General Education Development (GED) exam.

Interested students should complete their required entry testing and registration by 5 p.m. Friday.

MCC offers precollege studies (PCS) courses specializing in reading, communication (writing) and math, as well as a GED preparation course, which reviews all five portions of the GED exam. The GED exam tests comprehension in reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies.

MCC students who have already taken the college’s COMPASS placement test are still required to take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) to register for a PCS course. There is no fee to take the TABE. Results of the TABE will determine which classes will be suggested for students.

“The PCS classes are very affordable and offer students the chance to ease their testing anxiety,” said Jenna DePeal, the PCS faculty on MCC’s Lake Havasu City campus. “Through these classes, our GED students will be able to find the help and support that they need to succeed.”

The nominal fee for the PCS classes depends on income and ranges from $15 to $35 per class. Classes begin Monday. PCS students must be at least 16 years old, not currently enrolled in high school and show proof of legal residency.

The Precollege Studies department at MCC’s Lake Havasu City campus is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The department is located in Building 200 on the campus at 1977 Acoma Blvd., West.

For more information, please contact DePeal at the Precollege Studies department at 302-5341.
