A lot of people see the “CAT” term attached to the ASVAB test when they first start looking into the test and aren’t sure what that stands for. This term is an acronym and it stands for “Computerized Adaptive Test”. There are three different versions of the ASVAB test. The CAT is available at military processing stations for enlisting soldiers. The pencil and paper (also known as the P&P or S-ASVAB) version of the test is available for high school and college students who may not actually enlist. The third type of ASVAB test is the MET-ASVAB, or Mobile Examination Test, which is available only for enlisted soldiers at mobile testing centers (this test is also done with paper and pencil).
Quienes no viven cerca de un MEPS pueden realizar el examen (por lo general con lápiz y papel) en una ubicación satelital llamada centro MET (Prueba de Entrada a las Fuerzas Armadas, por sus siglas en inglés). Todos los reclutas militares deben realizar el ASVAB, incluso si ya realizaron el ASVAB CEP en la escuela secundaria. El ASVAB que se realiza en el MEPS añade una sección llamada Ensamblaje de objetos, con un total de nueve asignaturas.
Very helpful and has good tests. The actual ASVAB is easier, which is a good thing. Prepare and practice with harder tests and a study guide like this, and you will do well. Just give yourself plenty of time to study. Ideally at least a week at minimum. If I recall I practiced with this for 2 weeks. I scored 93 on AFQT. I was quite a few years removed from high school too, so I had to relearn some of this stuff. Others, I learned for the first time.
El (Fuerzas Armadas Qualifying Test) AFQT es posiblemente la puntuación ASVAB más importante, ya que determina si usted es elegible para unirse a la rama militar de su elección. Aunque el AFQT a menudo se llama la “puntuación general ASVAB,” eso no es del todo correcto, porque se deriva de sólo cuatro subpruebas: Expresión Verbal (VE), que se calcula a partir de la Comprensión (PC) y conocimiento de las palabras subpruebas (WK), razonamiento aritmético (AR), y Matemáticas conocimiento (MK).
This will show you exactly what your weak areas are, and where you need to devote more study time. Ask yourself why each of these questions gave you trouble. Was it because you didn’t understand the material? Was it because you didn’t remember the vocabulary? Do you need more repetitions on this type of question to build speed and confidence? Dig into those questions and figure out how you can strengthen your weak areas as you go back to review the material.

El ASVAB es agotador. Usted tiene que tomar nueve subpruebas que cubren algunos temas muy diversos. Usted tiene cerca de tres horas para completar la prueba real, por lo que si se pierde el foco, mientras que usted está tomando la prueba, el tiempo tiene una tendencia de deslizamiento de distancia, y no puede llegar a todas las preguntas. Es difícil, pero mantenerse enfocado en la tarea a lo largo de toda la prueba. Va a ser más pronto.

The scores from the Word Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning, Mathematics Knowledge, and Paragraph Comprehension are combined together and known as the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT). Your AFQT scores represent a percentile between 1 and 99 and measure your ranking compared to scores from other 18 to 23 year olds. If you score a 70 on your AFQT, this implies that you scored better than 70% of test takers. Your scores on the other six ASVAB tests will help identify which jobs may be appropriate for you in the military.

For almost a century, the U.S. military has been a pioneer in the field of using aptitude tests to evaluate an individual’s potential for service. The organization also uses the test to determine aptitude for various military occupational specialties (MOS). The use of aptitude tests began during World War I. While the group-administered Army Alpha test measured verbal and numerical ability as well as general knowledge, the Army Beta test was used to evaluate illiterate, unschooled and non-English speaking volunteers and draftees. The Army and Navy General Classifications Tests replaced the Alpha and Beta tests as a means to measure cognitive ability during World War II. The results of these tests, as well as additional classification exams, were used to assign recruits to a particular MOS.
