To score high on the ASVAB assembling object tests, applicants must learn about the kinds of question asked; how to identify trick answers; and, most importantly, how to add structure to the way they work out the correct solution.
Connector problems form about half of the assembling objects questions asked on the exam. Put simply, you will be presented with a series of shapes. At one point in either shape, there will be a dot and assigned letter, such as A or B. Another object will also have a designated dot, assigned A or B, and it is your job to connect those objects in an accurate way that preserves both the shape of the object and the angle at which it connects with the second object.
Assembling shape-style questions take a different approach. Here, you will be presented with a question of an object broken into several pieces. Your task is to assemble those pieces back together again. There are four possible options, all of which are roughly like one another. Approximately half the assembling objects exam is composed of shape reconstruction questions such as this. Bear in mind that the orientation of the shape, both in terms of question pieces, and the final design, must be consistent.
