NEW YORK, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Professional, a leader in test preparation content, announces the publication of the McGraw-Hill Education TASC, the most authoritative guide to the new high school equivalency exam, TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™.   It is the only book to contain authentic TASC test questions from CTB/McGraw-Hill, the creator of the TASC test.

The print and eBook editions are each $20. CTB/McGraw-Hill also offers test takers a complimentary practice test item sampler and an official TASC Test Readiness Assessment that is available in print and online.

"Postsecondary degrees continue to be a prerequisite for some of the fastest-growing industries in our economy, and the accessibility of solutions like the TASC test will be increasingly vital to expanding career opportunities and improving the quality of life across the country," said Ellen Haley, president of CTB/McGraw-Hill. "Preparation is essential to this process, which is why we're so proud to release McGraw-Hill Education TASC."
