Answer : Keep several different color highlighters on hand , and a 4 color ink pen, and take ridicules notes, and mark and height the book, use one color for people, another for places, underline or star passages that need further research, keep a running list of words your not familiar with, look them up, try making a Cliff note version for yourself.
Also looking it up on Wikipedia and reading more about the book on the internet can be of help, like looking at the box when your trying to put together a puzzle

Question : Also please give me a basic description of what is covered on the GED.
Answer : The GED test covers basic skills...math, reading, writing, spelling, language usage, etc. It has a science portion, but you don't have to know anything about science to pass it, you just have to know how to read the passages well. The level of each subject tested depends on the state you live in. It pretty much includes what you should know by the end of 10th grade.
