ASVAB Practice Tests

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a series of aptitude tests developed by the Department of Defense and is used to determine and predict the potential/future success of military candidates. The ASVAB military entrance exam is a part of the U.S. Military screening process and is administered annually to over one million applicants.

A train travels 100 feet every 2 seconds. How far will it travel in 36 seconds?

  1. 1670 ft
  2. 1836 ft
  3. 200 ft
  4. 286 ft
  5. 1480 ft
  6. None of the above

The correct answer is F.

Because 36 seconds is 18 times more than 2 seconds we also multiply the distance traveled by 18, 100*18=1800, which does not appear in the answers.

Two crates are sliding towards one another on a frictionless surface, as shown in the figure above. The 12 kg crate is sliding to the right at 10 m/s and the 30 kg crate is sliding to the left at 11 m/s. The two crates collide and continue moving, attached to one another. What is the velocity of the two crates after the collision (in m/s)?

  1. -1
  2. -5
  3. 10.7
  4. -210

The correct answer is B.

First, we need to determine which direction will be our positive direction and which direction will be the negative. Since usually the right direction is the positive one we shall determine that the velocity of a crate sliding to the right is positive and the velocity of a crate sliding to the left is negative.

ASVAB Testing Tips

Here are just a few of our tips on taking the ASVAB.

  • It is important that you dedicate ample time to study, but you also want to be sure not to overdo it.
  • Rest is crucial to studying, as it allows new materials to sink in. Thus, finding a balance between intensive preparation and resting time is important.
  • Begin studying by focusing on topics that you struggle with so that you have more time to practice and absorb the material.
  • Improve Your Vocabulary
  • Unanswered questions or incomplete tests do influence your score therefore answer all questions.
