This subtest is a vocabulary test that is combined with a paragraph comprehension test. The word knowledge test overall informs the National Defense of your “Verbal Equivalent” score. This subtest is very important. This test is one of the four mandatory tests that determine your eligibility of enlisting into the United States military.
Synonyms and context questions
This test will consist of questions that contain “synonyms” and “context.” The “synonyms” help in determining if you can identify words that mean the same as the word given to you. “Context” aids in determining the meaning of phrases or words in how they are placed in paragraphs and sentences.
Word Knowledge skills are mandatory for military life
Military members must be able to communicate in order to build a successful military career. The ability to communicate can never be under-rated. “Word Knowledge” measures your ability in understanding orders, training materials as well as expressing ideas, which depend greatly on understanding what is being verbally relayed to you.
“Word Knowledge” skills are required for all military members, no matter the branch or job you choose for enlisting. If you go into combat-related jobs, communication is very important when relaying orders. Military jobs outside of combat-related fields, communication still proves dire in achieving every day tasks. As you can see, good word knowledge skills are necessary in every-day military life, which is why this sub-test was created in measuring your ability to understand words and recognizing them in the way they are presented.
Communication skills apply to all civilian jobs
The “Word Knowledge” sub-test can also aid you in your civilian life. Communication is important with virtually any type of job you choose to perform. Whether you are a police officer or a bus driver, you cannot perform any job in the civilian sector unless you are able to communicate and understand directions.
