ASVAB Reading Comprehension Tips

Part of the ASVAB For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The Paragraph Comprehension passages on the ASVAB are usually pretty short. These tips can help you better comprehend the ASVAB reading passages and the questions that follow them:

  • Understand what the question wants from you. Does it ask for the main point, specific information, or a conclusion based on the information presented?

  • Reread the paragraph to make sure you answer the question correctly. If you’re a really slow reader, you may not have time to do so. However, if you’re not sure of an answer, quickly read the paragraph again.

  • Look for key vocabulary words. Paragraph Comprehension questions may test your vocabulary. Use the context — the surrounding words — to help you understand the meaning of a word.
