The rotated blocks portion of the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) measures your ability to visualize shapes in differing perspectives in space. The test shows you a block and five choices; you select the choice that represents the exact same block turned some particular way.

These types of questions are part of the "mental skills" portion of the test. Although these spatial relations types of questions may seem very unfamiliar at first, a little practice (such as the examples here) can help you achieve a much higher score.

You must be able to mentally manipulate the objects to select the correct corresponding picture. This section gives you 12 minutes to complete 15 questions; it’s not as fast-paced as the block-counting test, but it’s still a skill you’ll be better at with some practice. Here are some practice questions:
