ASVAB Word List September 18 2016 update

I think that a fluent speaker of American English uses a vocabulary of about 10,000 words.  I have created a list of words to help prepare for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.  Some words have definitions which come from dictionaries no longer covered by copyright, or from my own spontaneous definition as I read […]

New Post trying to consolidate all the Mathematical Info material

I THINK THAT THIS POSTING COMBINES ALL POSTINGS FROM JULY 2016 and the one before this one into one message about ASVAB Mathematics.   I have tried to consolidate all my notes and ideas about doing arithmetic, algebra, and geometry on a test like the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.   I came upon a document […]
