ASVAB Arithmetic Reasoning Tips
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.
