About the ASVAB Mathematics Knowledge Test

The ASVAB Math Knowledge test is a part of both the CAT computerized version of the ASVAB test and the manual pencil and paper version of the test. The CAT Mathematics Knowledge test has 16 questions and a time limit of 20 minutes. Test takers who attempt the pen and paper version of the test will have to solve 25 questions in 24 minutes.

Like many of the ASVAB tests, the Mathematics Knowledge test is not one where you can spend too much time on a single question. Time is limited (you have roughly one minute to complete each math question) and calculators are not allowed on the test. The best way to prepare for the mathematics knowledge test section is to get used to questions that will be on the test itself. Using ASVAB math practice tests like this one can get you used to the mathematics knowledge questions found on this section of the ASVAB.

The ASVAB Mathematics Knowledge test is reported separately as part of your ASVAB Standard Score and part of your percentile rank. This ASVAB Math practice test, and the sample ASVAB practice test questions on this site are designed to test your general knowledge of high school mathematics.

To excel on the ASVAB Mathematics Knowledge test you’ll need to work hard on math practice tests like this one and also make sure you have a solid understanding of mathematical concepts and their applications. If you’re interested in seeing what some math sample questions look like before delving into the test, here are a couple of examples to get you started. Once you are ready you can practice ASVAB math by using the start test button found above.
