FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The tough economy is prompting more people to get serious about upgrading their educational credentials, and it's showing up in book buying and book reading habits.

Copies of books dealing with GED test preparation topped a "Most Popular List" for non-fiction books checked-out from the Allen County Public Library in late September and early October.

They help people gain the equivalency of a high school diploma.

Gary Gatman with Work One Northeast says, "If you don't have that as a base credential, it's difficult to access some of the more traditional post-secondary training programs or certificate programs, so, it's kind of a building block. You've got to start there, get that piece secure, then move on to the next level."

Glenbrook Mall's Barnes and Noble store has copies of several GED books, including the newest edition of "Complete GED Preparation."
