I studied for the ASVAB for two week straight using the ASVAB for Dummies book. Since I was enlisting in the Air Force, and I wanted to get into RF Systems or Cyber Transport support, I needed a hella high score in science, math, and electronics. I read every section, but I focused on the math, science, and electronics sections. I felt that the practice tests were harder than the questions on the actual ASVAB at MEPS. This was cool, because I felt like I could answer most of the ASVAB questions okay. The ASVAB I took at MEPS was on a computer, so it was easier than doing the ASVAB on paper. Some of my friends didn't study for the ASVAB, so they were feeling kinda depressed after the test. After the ASVAB, I was exhausted, because it took me four hours. I received my score immediately after I completed the test. I got a 95 percentile out of 99. I was hella happy!!! I immediately called my recruiter to tell him how I scored.
The ASVAB test can be taken at your school or a MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Stations) or MET (Mobile Examination Test) sites.  When the ASVAB is administered at your school, it is usually part of the Student Testing Program or Career Exploration Program.  When the ASVAB is given at MEPS or MET sites, it is part of the Enlistment Testing Program.  The ASVAB test content is the same no matter where you take it, except that you will not have to take the Assembling Objects test if you take the test at your school (as part of the Student Testing Program).  When you take the test in the Student Testing Program you will receive three composite scores (Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science and Technical Skills).  When you take the ASVAB as part of the Enlistment Testing Program, you will receive an AFQT (Armed Forces Qualification Test) score and Service composite scores.  These scores are used for assigning your military job.

The Paragraph Comprehension section of the test measures your ability to read a passage and interpret the information contained within it. You may read a selection and be asked to interpret the author’s purpose, or what a particular word in the passage means, based on the context of the sentence where it appears. To help you better prepare for the exam, the Paragraph Comprehension section of the ASVAB practice test has passages of similar length and style to those on the actual ASVAB test. The CAT-ASVAB test has 11 questions in 22 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 15 questions in 13 minutes.

El enfoque de la ASVAB como objetivo es llegar a acercarse a su formación. Los militares tienen un dicho: “Si estás a tiempo, llegas tarde.” Se oye este principio más de una vez en la formación básica. Si usted está tomando el ASVAB para los propósitos de unirse a los militares, entonces es muy probable que toma la prueba en una entrada Militar estación de procesamiento (MEPS) y su reclutador probablemente tiene organizado su transporte.


The vast majority of people who take the CAT-ASVAB test finish it as the time constraints are not very aggressive. However, if a respondent isn’t able to finish in time, the remaining unanswered questions are scored as if the respondent had answered them randomly. This is obviously not an ideal way to finish up the test and most often results in even poorer scores.

After adopting the test in 1976 the test became a way of indicating whether or not an individual was 100% qualified to serve. As previously mentioned this aptitude test has a colorful history. That is because it underwent a dramatic change in 2002 and another dramatic change in 2004. The change that occurred in 2002 expanded the categories of the test and the overall difficulty. This can be seen by the addition of all of the diverse categories below:
