Tips for Getting the Most Out of Practice ASVAB Tests
Now that you know where to find the best ASVAB practice tests, here are three tips on how to use them during your workout.
#1: Make good use of formal practice tests
As mentioned earlier, the best ASVAB practice tests are official ones, so you'll want to get the most out of them. There are three complete formal practice tests, and we recommend that the first practice test you take before you even start studying is the official practice test.
Use these test results to get an idea of how well you did and where you need to improve. The last practice test you take to get the best score on how you are going to do on test day should also be a formal practice test. If you take another practice test in between, use a third formal practice test, then an additional informal practice test.
#2: check your mistakes
Your work is not done after you complete the ASVAB practice test. After you have taken and graded the practice test, check your answers to see where you went wrong on the questions. Look for patterns in the questions you answered incorrectly. The main reason for taking field tests is to find out your weaknesses and improve in those areas.
#3: Strengthen your weak point
Once you have completed your first ASVAB exercise, don't jump to the next exercise. Instead, take the time to strengthen the areas that need improvement. This is where review books can come in handy if there are test areas you need to update. Take any knowledge gaps you've corrected before taking another field test, otherwise you won't see much improvement.
Reinforcing weaknesses may include studying relevant sections in the prep book, answering practical questions, and/or changing your testing strategy.
