Practice Exam 4: Answers and Explanations

Are you ready to take the actual ASVAB yet and max out the AFQT score? I sure hope so. I hope you’re feeling confident as well. If you still don’t feel ready, you may want to look over the practice exams again, until you’re comfortable with the types of questions that will be presented on the real test. You may also want to consider reading ASVAB For Dummies (Wiley) for two more full-length AFQT practice exams, as well as three full-length ASVAB practice tests.

The answer keys in the following sections tell you how well you did on the final AFQT practice exam. Remember: Don’t be too concerned about the percent right or wrong. On the actual test, harder questions are worth more points than easier questions when computing your AFQT score, so it’s entirely possible to miss a few questions and still max out your AFQT score.

Part 1: Arithmetic Reasoning

How’d you do on this subtest? If you don’t feel so good about the results, you may want to postpone taking the real ASVAB until you’ve gotten some more study time under your belt, and perhaps taken a math course or two at your neighborhood community college. You may also want to take another look at Chapters 9 and 11.

Other great resources to improve your math skills are Math Word Problems For Dummies, Algebra I For Dummies, and Algebra II For Dummies, all by Mary Jane Sterling; Geometry For Dummies by Mark Ryan; SAT II Math For Dummies by Scott Hatch, JD, and Lisa Zimmer Hatch, ...
