AFQT Practice Test

For those planning to enroll in the military, it’s necessary to pass the AFQT test, or the Armed Forces Qualification Test. The AFQT is a subset of the larger ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) test which includes nine separate test sections and was designed to measure and predict the success of applicants for various vocations within the military. While elements of the broader ASVAB test are focused on identifying optimal career paths for enrollees, the AFQT is strictly designed to see if the test taker is eligible to serve in the Armed Services. The four test categories that make up the AFQT score are:

  • Math Knowledge
  • Arithmetic Reasoning
  • Word Knowledge
  • Paragraph Comprehension

Within these four tests, the Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension tests are combined into an overall Verbal Ability score and all of them are combined into your ultimate AFQT score, sometimes referred to as the Military Entrance Score.
