Internet Sources that I think are useful for preparation to take the Arithmetic and Mathematics Knowledge Parts of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery

It is my understanding that these portions of the ASVAB are the ones with the highest failure rate.

I have been looking for internet accessible study help. I have found two groups of sources

Internet web pages and web sites.

Youtube videos.

I have looked at sample GED Tests and sample ASVAB Tests. I think that success in completing GED type questions will help a a person succeed in completing the Arithmetic and Mathematics segments of the ASVAB.

The ASVAB has many questions that are based on algebra or geometry. The following lists of website addresses (URLs) are some I think will help a person. There are many other sites with good instruction. I chose to limit my list to websites that usually have a domain ending in: edu , k12, or org.

There are many study guides available. I found books by 7 different publishers at a bookstore. Public libraries may have “Test Book Section” with a variety of study guides for civil service, military service, undergraduate, and professional education programs. Used book stores may have copies of older editions of study guides. A major change in the GED test system was made in 2014, so only GED guides with copyright dates of 2014 or later should be purchased or borrowed.

ALGEBRA

Professor Perez

http://saddleback.edu/faculty/lperez/algebra2go/prealgebra/index.html .

This site was started by Professor Perez of Saddleback Community College, Mission Viejo, California.

The segments begin with pre-algebra mathematics, but continue up through algebra, and perhaps even into calculus.

Web pages are available in English AND in Spanish. The file formats are in several different programs, including .wmv, and Youtube videos.

Khan Academy

http:// www.khanacademy.org

The Khan Academy was started by by Salman Khan in 2006 to provide free, high-quality instruction to anyone with access to a computer. Broad area of education include Mathematics, Science and Engineering, Arts and Humanities, Computing, and Test Preparation.

The segments with videos to help those preparing for the ASVAB include Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Probability and Statistics.

A typical URL begins with https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra-home/ and one of these words algebra , arithmetic , geometry , probability .

There are subtopics for each of the words. I recommend getting an ASVAB study guide, using it, and then looking at the Kahanacademy video listings to find the video or videos that are most likely to match the study guide topic. (New study guides may have a CD disc or password card included within which will provide links to the publisher’s own help site. Take advantage of this material if it is in the guide.)

GEOMETRY

https://www.saddleback.edu/faculty/lperez/algebra2go/ The sections that show up on the left hand side of the web page under Courses, Math 351 down through Intermediate Algebra may be useful to prepare for examinations.

http://dummies.com The publishers of the “Dummies” book series have web pages about the concepts of geometry and use of geometry.

Some of the websites that I found are:

dummies.com/how-to/content/geometry-formulas-you-should-know.html

/adding-and-subtracting-segments-and-angles.html

/getting-to-know-angles.html

/how-to-measure-line-segments.html

/getting-to-know-points.html

/bisecting-and-trisecting-segments.html

While scanning Youtube, I came upon a video titled “Most missed GED Math Test Problem” .

I have not checked my ASVAB Test Guides to see if this problem type is also used in the ASVAB test, but I have a hunch that this problem type does appear in the ASVAB.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=4kEpzeCDL_K (I hope that I have the letters and numbers correct in capitalization.)

Khanacademy.org has videos offering instruction in geometry. I think that a person studying for an exam with a pre-examination information sheet, or a common study guide, should look at the sheet or guide and the list of Khan Academy videos to see which ones will help them prepare for that specific examination.

There is a free website http://www.GEDMathlessons.com which may be helpful in studying the types of problems on that exam that are probably similar to those found on the ASVAB test. The author of this site offers a larger, pay for use, site for the total GED.

You may not need to subscribe to it unless you do not have a high school diploma. GED certificate holders must receive a higher score on the AFQT and ASVAB test to be considered enlistment.

If you have a chance to get a high school diploma OR go for a GED, get the diploma./

Studying for the GED test in SPANISH.

I found three sites that offer preparation material to take the Spanish language GED examination. The ASVAB is an English language test. If you feel more

comfortable learning the arithmetic and mathematics in Spanish, you might try these sites.

GED EN ESPANOL

Khanlatinoamericano (Khan Academy)

I located a set of 11 lessons for geometry in Khanlatinoamericano when I searched Youtube.com Geometrica 1 ….. Geometrica 11

There may be a set of lessons for algebra The English and spanish spellings of algebra are the same except for the accent over the a.

The master webpage for Khanlatinoamericano may have a table of contents list similar to the ones of the English language web site.
