Getting your GED? Hurry up

The so-called high school equivalency test (GED) is for those who did not formally graduate HS and wish to go on to college or have some credential.

Starting in 2014, this set of tests is undergoing big changes. Classes used to be free (google it for places near you, study guides, and so on). The actual test used to cost $7.50, which paid for a printed diploma.

Now the cost is already at as much as $250, depending on your state.

And costs will rise--it's now under a for-profit company.

And forget pencil and paper. Next year, you will need a computer to take it. The changes start Jan 2, 2014.

All in all--take it now.
