A numerical investigation of some of the asymptotic formulas in partitions is made. Comparisons with actual computed values show that in certain cases only the relative error tends to zero and the errors are significant. Only in the case of pk(n) is it found that only a few terms of the asymptotic series are sufficient to obtain the exact value.
