I've been looking around for study guides, and what exactly will be on the GED test, but everything I find just seems outdated. After I get my test I was hopping to go into the Navy or Army, but I've always heard they don't take in people who has their GED. I sorta feel like crap for not finishing high school, but everyone around me at the time keep making feel unwanted and never wanted to be succeed, and just turning 22 and have done nothing but worked at a factory job ever since makes me want go out and do more with my life.

I have a GED. It was quite easy really. Also, you CAN join the military with a GED as long as:
1. You have 15 college credits (You can get them from a junior college or community college. It should take about a semester or 5 courses.)
2. Your ASVAB score meets the minimum requirements for GED enlistees. The minimum for people with GEDs is quite a bit higher than for HS Diploma holders. I got my GED in 2013 and got my 15 credits last year. I am currently in the DEP for the Navy and should be going to boot camp in a few months. So as long as you're still in your early to mid 20s I would say you should go for it. Unfortunately the GED has changed some since I got it but it should still be easy if you had average grades in HS. Best of luck!
Also, if you can, get one of those GED Prep books. You can find them online or at a book shop like Barnes and Noble.
OR in your area see if the local community college or school board offers GED Preparation classes. This is very beneficial if you can work the classes around your job. This is what I did because I was really rusty with algebra.
Don't let little stuff like this hold you back in life. Get after it, you can do it!
I was able to join the Air Force with a GED. I believe that the 15 college credit requirement >>54325 mentioned is DoD wide.
A quick google search revealed this:
Apparently they updated the test and new study material may not be out yet. Your best bet may be to contact the place or agency that administers the test for the current test prep material.
