Kmike Posted March 2, 2019 Share Posted March 2, 2019 (edited) I took the AFOQT last year and did really well in my Pilot (93) but sucked in every other category (44-Nav, 36-Academic, 28-Verbal and 47- quantitive). I studied for the test using some test prep books and the online practice questions but still managed to underestimate it and score poorly. The hardest part of the test for me was the first 3 sections (Verbal Analogies, Arithmetic Reasoning, and Word Knowledge) I can guarantee that these were the sections that destroyed my scores because everything else seemed relatively easy. The two verbal sections I screwed up on because of my lack of vocabulary and the time constraint. The Arithmetic Reasoning section I scored poorly primarily due to the time constraint. I was expecting a timer to be projected up on a wall to know exactly how much time you have left but instead all we got were random time call outs. I think I managed to get through half of the Arithmetic Reasoning problems due to this. With all that said, what are some pro study/test taking tips that could help me improve my scores particularly in those areas? What are the best ways to tremendously improve my vocabulary for the test? Id like to get everything in the 80s and 90s the next time I take it. I know I could do better but I’m currently not fast enough on the Arithmetic Reasoning and not knowledgeable enough on the vocab.
