for the subject test, not useful at all. I could see maybe an approximation question (like Euler's method) popping up, but you've probably seen that in any number of math courses: calc, odes... I doubt you'll see anything beyond that (approximation methods, not those courses).
Most numerical methods are iterative algorithms involving messy arithmetic, not the easiest thing to fit into an already fiercly timed test with no use of calculators.
However, this is just my opinion, and other's experiences may differ.
