Use this answer key to score the Practice AFQT Exam in Chapter 19. Note that the actual AFQT is scored by comparing your raw score to the scores of other people, which produces a scaled score. Turn to Chapter 1 to find out how the AFQT score is derived from the Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, and Mathematics Knowledge subtests. Keep in mind that these four subtests determine whether you can even get into the military. If you find you’re still struggling in any of these subtest areas, you may want to concentrate some additional study effort before knocking on the recruiter’s door to say, “I’m ready!”
Mathematical word problems can be tough for some people. You have to develop a skill for determining which factors are relevant to the problem and then be able to convert those factors into a mathematical formula to arrive at a correct solution. Yikes! No wonder there are so many math books on the market! If you still need work on this subtest, I recommend a few good math books in Chapter 14. Reviewing Chapters 6 and 7 and the additional practice questions at the end of those chapters may also help.
