Recruiters are tasked with making sure that every military applicant meets all the requirements for the branch he or she is enlisting in. Once the preliminary requirements are met, they can and will schedule you to take the ASVAB. This will further either confirm or deny your application into military life, as well as dictate your possible career path during your time in the Armed Forces.
Trust me when I say this will be an important purchase for anyone looking to take the ASVAB. I only had three days notice to get ready for the test and felt nervous about it. But after reading through the book over those few days, I felt confident going in. I ended up scoring a 94 AFQT score and qualified for any job I wanted. Not only will this book give you some basic knowledge you'll need to complete subtests you're unfamiliar with, it will also give you tips and methods on how to best attack questions you don't know how to answer. Would definitely recommend this to anyone preparing for the ASVAB.
High school and postsecondary students can also take the ASVAB test as part of the Department of Defense’s Career Exploration Program. This paper-and-pencil version of the test is the same as the paper-and-pencil enlistment version but excludes the Assembling Objects section. It is intended to help those students considering a career in the military to discover their strengths in both military and civilian jobs. If the student scores high enough in the AFQT section of the test, he may use the score to enlist within the two-year expiration window.
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).
Dos de las cuatro partes que componen su AFQT son los exámenes de matemáticas. La primera, razonamiento aritmético, pone a prueba su capacidad de usar las matemáticas para resolver diversos problemas que pueden surgir en la vida real - en otras palabras, problemas de matemáticas. El segundo, conocimientos matemáticos, pone a prueba su capacidad para resolver problemas generales de matemáticas. Estos son algunos consejos para ayudar a maximizar su puntuación ASVAB subprueba de matemáticas:
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.
Don’t be fooled by the appearance of the low numbers, the algorithm that computes the AFQT is very sophisticated. Just because your ASVAB score is 40 doesn’t mean that you only got 40% of the questions correct, it could simply mean that you lack strength in one area, but succeed with high praise in another. Your ASVAB score is only a means by which you are categorized for available positions; it is by no means a measure of intelligence.
Your ASVAB scores determine what jobs you will qualify for in the military. But before you embarrass yourself in front of active duty service members, know that a job in the Army and the Marine Corps is called an MOS, which is an acronym for Military Occupational Specialty. In the Air Force, jobs are called AFSC – Air Force Specialty Code. In the Navy they are known as an NEC - Navy Enlisted Classification and the Coast Guard, jobs are called ratings, or rate for short.
Para realizar el ASVAB en el MEPS con fines de alistamiento, una persona deberá hablar con un reclutador y programar un horario para hacerlo. La evaluación del ASVAB en el MEPS es autodirigida y se realiza en una computadora, y se puede volver a realizar después de un período de espera de un mes. Llamado CAT-ASVAB, este examen es adaptable. Esto significa que se adapta a su nivel de capacidad.
The Word Knowledge section of the test gauges your ability to recognize the meaning of words both individually and when used in a sentence. A question may be phrased as, “‘Antagonize’ most nearly means: embarrass, struggle, provoke, or worship.” Because there are so many words in the English language, you may find it difficult to study the specific words on the test. However, striving to improve your language and vocabulary usage with a practice test like this one can help you not only in preparing for the ASVAB test but also in your career and personal life. The CAT-ASVAB test has 16 questions in 8 minutes, while the paper-and-pencil version has 35 questions in 11 minutes.
The Mechanical Comprehension section of the ASVAB practice test measures your understanding of basic mechanical principles and mechanisms. You may be asked why an intake valve on a pump opens when the piston goes down, or what direction friction is going when shown a diagram of a skier. The CAT-ASVAB has 16 questions in 20 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 25 questions in 19 minutes.
El ASVAB también produce varias puntuaciones de línea, que son diferentes para cada rama de servicio. las puntuaciones de línea determinan qué trabajos militar que está calificado para.

I glanced through this book as well as a few others at a book store. This book had four practice tests, whereas most others only had three. I liked that, so I bought it. However, once I started to take the tests and read the review material, I noticed that this book has a deplorable number of mistakes. I DO NOT recommend buying this book unless you are trying to play a cruel joke on someone who is trying to join the military.
Use this book as a guide especially for the word knowledge portion of the asvab, it has a great primer on understanding words that may be unknown to you without having to use a dictionary. The material in the math section of this book however didn't cover what was on the actual exam at Ft. Meade in the testing center. The actual test had many more basic arithmetic reasoning questions rather than algebraic questions involving formulas, coordinates, or inequalities. I think you'll purchase this book and realize that you know more than you think you do. Got a 92 btw on the ASVAB AFQT. Overall this book really helped with word knowledge.
