In elementary and high schools, each individual establishes a foundation of learning in a multitude of curriculums. Without constant honing of those skills one can easily forget the basic rules. This two-video set offers a refresher course on the principals of social studies. A qualified teacher and a test-taking expert address questions to be found on the General Educational Development (GED) Social Studies Test. This presentation is clear, simple, and removes any doubts or fears about tackling social studies. Students work at their own pace of comprehension and study. The lessons on these tapes cover such topics as basic thinking skills for social studies; how to read the information on graphs, tables and maps; and how national and world events reflect historical and social trends. This tutorial is designed to refresh one's understanding of history, politics, and economics and to build upon that understanding. This comprehensive program runs 3 hours and 25 minutes on two videos.
