### Blue Book Breakdown: Test 1 Math

I broke down every Blue Book test when I wrote the Math Guide. In the book there are page numbers instead of links, obviously.

The idea here is that you can take a test, and use the results from that test to really identify some weaknesses. Then you drill those weaknesses before taking another test. Awesome, right?

I'm running a promotion throughout February that will give away some free copies of the book. Want in? The details are here.

Use ratios. 3 7 417 14 Figure out the difference between each term (it's 20). Take no prisoners. 4 7 418 15 3 7 418 16 Be super careful and use trial and error. Starting point: X is the biggest. 4 7 418 17 4 7 418 18 Don't be fooled, this question is easy as long as you can read function notation. 5 8 419 1 Read the graph carefully. Boy, there sure are a lot of these in this test! 1 8 419 2 1 8 420 3 1 8 420 4 Draw it. The sides of the square are 4. 2 8 420 5 Make four blanks, and fill them in based on what the question says. 1 8 421 6 3 8 421 7 3 8 422 8 3 8 422 9 3 8 422 10 3 8 423 11 3 8 423 12 4 8 423 13 3 8 424 14 4 8 424 15 5 8 424 16 4
