ASVAB Word Knowledge Help


I am struggling on word knowledge. Can someone please help me understand how to better break down a word to find its meaning? I'm seeing words I've never saw or heard of before.

look at the suffix and prefix of the word you can usually tell what the word is going to me such as disadvantage dis means to not and advantage means to gain so the most common answer would be to not gain anything

This section is hard because on the test they can literally ask any word in the English language, which makes it just about impossible to study. I would definitely focus on studying popular suffixes/prefixes (root words). Your library might have a book or I'm sure you could Google it as well. Good luck!
