Mathematics Knowledge Study Guide for McGraw-Hill's ASVAB
The ASVAB Mathematics Knowledge test measures your ability to solve problems using concepts taught in high school math courses. These concepts include various topics in algebra, probability, and geometry. You'll need to know about solving equations, setting up ratios and proportions, graphing on a coordinate plane, determining the probability of a given event, identifying plane and solid geometric figures, and calculating perimeter, area, and volume.
It is important that you do well on the Mathematics Knowledge test because it is one of the four ASVAB tests that are used to calculate the AFQT—your military entrance score. That's why it pays to spend time reviewing topics in algebra, probability, and geometry and tackling plenty of sample ASVAB Mathematics Knowledge questions.
The following pages offer a quick but important overview of the basic algebra and probability that you need to know if you are to score well on the ASVAB. Make sure that you carefully review and test yourself on every topic covered in this section. Also make sure that you learn how to use all of the problem-solving methods presented in the examples. Chapter 13 will provide a similar review of basic concepts and problem-solving methods in geometry. If you master the core information presented in these two chapters, you will be able to answer ASVAB Mathematics Knowledge questions with relative ease.
