The Mathematics Knowledge section of the exam measures your knowledge of various math areas, such as algebra and geometry. You may be asked to find the square root of a number or the volume of a brick with given dimensions. Algebraic problems may require finding the value of “y” in a given equation. A review of math symbols—such as ≠, ≤, and √—can help you solve the given problems much faster, and using our ASVAB math study guide to practice answering the algebra and geometry questions on the test can help increase your overall AFQT score. The CAT-ASVAB has 16 questions in 20 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 25 questions in 24 minutes.
I studied for the ASVAB for two week straight using the ASVAB for Dummies book. Since I was enlisting in the Air Force, and I wanted to get into RF Systems or Cyber Transport support, I needed a hella high score in science, math, and electronics. I read every section, but I focused on the math, science, and electronics sections. I felt that the practice tests were harder than the questions on the actual ASVAB at MEPS. This was cool, because I felt like I could answer most of the ASVAB questions okay. The ASVAB I took at MEPS was on a computer, so it was easier than doing the ASVAB on paper. Some of my friends didn't study for the ASVAB, so they were feeling kinda depressed after the test. After the ASVAB, I was exhausted, because it took me four hours. I received my score immediately after I completed the test. I got a 95 percentile out of 99. I was hella happy!!! I immediately called my recruiter to tell him how I scored.
Los Conocimientos matemáticos evalúan la capacidad de resolver problemas a partir del conocimiento de aplicaciones y conceptos matemáticos. Los problemas se enfocan en conceptos y algoritmos, e incluyen teoría de números, numeración, operaciones algebraicas y ecuaciones, geometría, medición y probabilidad. Los Conocimientos matemáticos son un factor que caracteriza la comprensión matemática; también evalúan el pensamiento lógico.
The various armed forces adopted all of those aspects in 1976. At that point in time, the test was in its written form rather than today’s more common form (computerized test format). The written form covers all of the previously mentioned areas as well, which is why both forms are still available. All-in-all that answers the question concerning the intention of the test.
