When Unsure Of An ASVAB Question – Guess With A Purpose

No matter how well or hard you study for the upcoming ASVAB exam, there is no doubt that you will come across a question or concept on exam day that will confuse you. Do not panic!

All specialized army ASVAB practice test is presented in a multi-choice format. This means that even if you don't know the answer to a particular question or maybe don't even understand what the question wants, you can still earn points for the correct answer.

The way you guess the question will help you determine exactly what your guess is. So the first rule for ASVAB:

NEVER leave a single question blank

Let's take a look at some math statistics. If a question has 4 possible answers and you leave it blank, you will not receive credit. This leads to the same result as the next person who answers wrong.

However, if you blindly choose 1 of the 4 answer options, you have a 1 in 4 or 25% chance of getting the correct answer. Then logic dictates that if you guess 4 questions, you will most likely guess at least one.

Let's underestimate your ability to guess ASVAB, taking into account factors such as nervousness and panic, and reduce this ratio to 1 in 5 that is correctly guessed. This still gives you a good chance, provided you know the answers to enough additional questions.
