Geometry Review for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) Study Guide
Typically, there are very few geometry problems on the math test. The problems that are included tend to cover the basics: lines, angles, triangles, rectangles, squares, and circles. You may be asked to find the area or perimeter of a particular shape or the size of an angle. The arithmetic involved is pretty simple, so all you really need are a few definitions and formulas.
