The high school equivalency test in New York State, formerly known as the GED, is now called the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC). Preparation classes for this test provide adult learners with instruction in subject areas and skills required to pass the equivalency exam and include a review of the required forms as well as simulated practice exams. Preparation for the TASC is also offered at the Naples Library every Thursday evening from 6-9 PM. The TASC assesses Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.Registration is available through FLCC.
