I knew there was a section about reading tables and graphs, but not drawing graphs.

I've worked through a couple of ASVAB practice tests but stopped using them because the math involved far more complex problems - like knowing formulas for different scenarios. I'm assuming I won't need to know formulas for kinetic energy, momentum, etc for the POSS test.

I did buy the ARCO Mechanical Aptitude and Spatial Relations book and have been working through it. I'm consistently scoring high in each section, so it's giving me some hope for next Thursday.

I'm just looking forward to getting the thing over with!

Derek, did you receive a notification from Millstone that you passed, or were you able to check the results online?

There are no graphs to draw. It's just like the practice test. I used the straight edge to help me line up the points on the graph and focus on the appropriate line on the tables.

WRT the math, it was just like the practice test. One section of conversions and then a section of mostly algebra. This involved a lot of questions on decimal points and dividing fractions. Examples:

.5X + 5 = 3.5X + 12.5; solve for X

divide 3X/2 by 4x/12

These are not exact problems that I saw, but they are the type I didn't practice much.

Here's the e-mail I got:
