Part of 1,001 ASVAB AFQT Practice Questions For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The Arithmetic Reasoning subtest of the ASVAB makes up a significant part of your score, so don’t let these word problems trip you up. Remember:

  • Read the problem thoroughly so you understand what it’s asking you.
  • Make sure you’re using the correct units of measurement for the problem (and if you have to, convert them).
  • Don’t let simple math errors lead you to the wrong answer. Double-check your work if you have time.
  • Draw diagrams to help you visualize the problems.
