Again, would you rather go into the ASVAB unsure of what to expect and not knowing if you studied the right things or would you prefer to have taken similar tests covering content commonly tested for on the real thing? Taking practice tests is a great way to build your knowledge, your confidence and your ASVAB familiarity so that you feel relaxed and confident on test day.


I normally don't care to do this, but I kind of felt like I had to with the number of errors in this book. I was actually liking the way it was setup and the tests and everything. I did find an error or two, which I shrugged off, most books have them. I keep reading, to find more and more and more. The thing is these weren't spelling errors. In fact, I didn't find one spelling error in my studies with this book. They were all information type errors. I can remember at least six off the top of my head. For example, in one single paragraph you are told invertebrates have no spine while vertebrates have no spine...yeah it caught me off guard too. One example from the math section, i forget which one, tells you (correctly) that you need to put your answer under the tens place when finding the product of, say, ten times twenty after you have multiplied the first number. It would look something like this: (did my best with the formatting)
Tal vez sea porque los jóvenes de hoy son más cómodos en frente de un equipo de lo que son con papel y lápiz, pero los reclutadores militares han señalado que entre los solicitantes que han tomado tanto en la versión en papel y la versión informatizada del ASVAB, reclutas tienden para marcar ligeramente superior en la versión computarizada de la prueba.
If you're prepping for the ASVAB in order to begin or advance your military career, you know how important it is to succeed.

There are essentially two options when it comes to preparing for this test. First, a person can attempt to reassess all of the information that they learned over a decade by spending hours compiling information. Secondly, a person can find a specially formatted ASVAB practice test that covers all areas of both the written test and computerized test. Clearly, the best choice is the ASVAB practice test. The question becomes “Where does one find an accurate ASVAB practice test?”
This book is an absolute bargain. Barron’s walks you through the theories behind each core area of the ASVAB and, rather than having practice questions all come at the end, integrates them into each chapter so that you can check your progress along the way. Each section is very detail-oriented, ensuring that you won’t miss anything you might encounter on the exam. The book comes with four full-length exams, two additional exams on an included CD and an unusually thorough guide to the “assembling objects” component of the exam, one of the hardest to master. There’s also a section on analyzing your scores once you’ve taken the exam, and to see how your aptitudes will prepare you for (or hinder you from) various military career paths. Unfortunately, this book doesn’t come with flashcards or diagrams, so you might want to supplement your studies with another book on our list.
Many high schools give students the opportunity to take the ASVAB as part of career exploration. If you chose not to take one in high school, then you will have to schedule a time to take it. You can contact the Armed Forces Recruiting Officer in your area and you can schedule an appointment with a local recruiter from the branch of the military you wish to join.

To be admitted to the ASVAB testing room you will need to show a valid id. It is also important to be on time (or early!) since you will be turned away if you show up after the scheduled start time. The ASVAB can be given via computer or pencil and paper.  If you are testing at a MEPS site you will take it on a computer.  The pencil and paper version is given at most MET sites.  The computer version of the test is given as a "computer adaptive test" (CAT) which means that the test will adapt based on the level of the individual test taker (e.g., if you answer many questions correctly, you may be shown fewer questions).
After a candidate has completed the ASVAB they must wait one calendar month before retaking the exam. An additional calendar month must pass before retesting a second time. Six calendar months must pass before retaking the test a third time. The scores received from the ASVAB may be used for enlistment for up to two years from the initial test date.

When you are considered a career in the military you need to take the ASVAB test. But each branch of the military has different ASVAB requirements that you need to meet. They are different levels of education that you must reach to take the test. But you also need to score a certain amount of points on that ASVAB test to gain access into the branch you desire.

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.

The SAT requires training of the mind. More specifically it requires one to be able to pick up on context clues, make valid assumptions, and express concrete facts. This is why millions of students study intensely before they jump right into the test. Imagine if another area was added onto that same test. The person studying for that test would then need to study even harder. That is the logic that should be put forth when preparing for the ASVAB. It requires that a person expresses the previously mentioned skills while adding the verbal/physical aspects. The question becomes “How does one prepare themselves for this rigorous test?”
