The Paragraph Comprehension Subtest consists of 15 ASVAB questions with a total time limit of only 13 minutes, which is approximately 51 seconds per question. There are four types of questions, and the subjects are often unknown.
Sections can be long or short, and often contain more than one question per section. Even fast readers need to use strategy to have the best chance of succeeding on the ASVAB paragraph comprehension subtest.
The correct answer is the word that replaces the word in question without changing the meaning of the sentence. As you read, think of your own words that might work in a sentence. See if a word like that is one of the answers.
Also look for words that contradict your opinion so you can disqualify the decision. You may get the answer through a process of elimination.
If you read slowly, you may have problems with the Paragraph Comprehension subtest. The techniques I outlined earlier will definitely help you and will likely improve your score in this section, but you'll need to increase your reading speed to do well in this section.
You need to set aside an hour a day to enjoy reading. You can read magazines, newspapers, books or web articles.
It doesn't matter how much you read, what matters is how often you read. You can even try exercises like paraphrasing an article or asking a friend to ask for details about an article after you've read it.
