Army Tests Tips

1Understand the Battlefield

Before you dive into practice, familiarize yourself with the types of questions and formats you’ll encounter. Knowing what to expect reduces surprises and maximizes your effectiveness during the actual test.

2Get in the Trenches Regularly

Consistent practice is your ally. The more you test yourself, the more natural the questions will feel. Make it a daily drill to refine your skills and build mental endurance.

3Review Your Maneuvers

After completing each practice test, take the time to review your answers, particularly the ones you got wrong. Understanding your errors is crucial for strategizing improvements in your next attempt.

4Simulate Test Day Conditions

Practice under realistic conditions. This means timing yourself as if you were in the actual exam. It’ll teach you to manage your time effectively and handle the pressure of a countdown.

5Stay in Fighting Shape

Just like physical fitness, keep your mind sharp. Rest well before practice tests, and ensure you’re in a distraction-free environment to maintain focus. A clear and well-rested mind is your best weapon.

    It’s just a test to exercise, so you can fail and try again

    I liked the fact that there is the possibility to review all questions before ending the test, but found some questions not related to the army.

    You have to understand the question first

    What l like is that the questions are easy – but you can fail if you do not understand, you have to solve and not guess.

    It's really hard

    I like the test because it's really challenging. And some of the answers are not in the choices. And the things I don't like in the test was the subject given, because it is mathematics . Hahahaha
