The Word Knowledge subtest, combined with the Paragraph Comprehension subtest, lets the military gauge how well you can communicate and understand directions. When you’re taking the Word Knowledge subtest, remember these tips:

  • Look at the sentence context for clues to a word’s meaning.
  • Narrow down your choices:
    • If two answer choices are very close in meaning, neither one is probably correct.
    • If two answer choices are opposite in meaning, one of them is probably correct.
