The scores from the other tests are used to determine what type of specialty you might be best suited for.  These "composite" scores (also known as line scores, MOS scores, or aptitude area scores) are calculated by adding together combinations of the different sub test standard scores. These composite scores are then used to determine which different military jobs (aka Military Occupational Specialties or MOS) may be the best fit for you.  Each branch of the military will have their own approach to these composite scores.

If you are interested in taking the ASVAB in order to apply for the military, you will need to contact a military recruiter. To find a recruiter near you, go to and click on “Request More Info.” When the recruiter has determined that you are otherwise qualified, he/she will set up a time for you to take the ASVAB at the closest Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) or an affiliated Military Entrance Test (MET) site.
I’ve been in for 2 years now. If reading this book makes you feel better taking the test then by all means buy it. I bought it a while back before I joined and never read it and got 53 average score. You might be thinking “wow what an idiot” but I assure you if you are going in under any sort of open contract whether it be mechanical, electrical, or whatever you could get a 100% and still get a job you never wanted in the first place digging ditches like myself. I work with people who got much higher and much lower asvab scores. If you want to join you don’t need an amazing asvab score, and it doesn’t really mean anything unless you need a certain score for the job you want (which you might not get). You’ll understand soon enough.

Para encontrar su puntaje AFQT, la fórmula a utilizar es 2VE + AR + MK. En primer lugar, el doble del VE puntuación (véase la sección anterior). A continuación, agregue al razonamiento aritmético (AR) y las puntuaciones de Matemáticas Conocimiento (MK) y comparar los resultados con la tabla siguiente. Nota: Para los puntos de 120 o menos, mantener la reducción a uno.
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.
If you want to do your absolute best on any test, cramming is probably not the best way to do it. But if you are short on time for any reason, you will want to have this CliffsNotes survival guide to help you. Before you start, the guide will ask you how much time you have left before test day and then match you with a study plan, whether you have two months to prepare or just one week. This guide outlines day-by-day schedules and, after you take the included diagnostic test, gives you tips for the most important things you should focus on preparing for. The subject reviews cover all of the information you will be expected to know on the actual test, from arithmetic and word knowledge to paragraph comprehension and more advanced mathematical topics. There’s only one practice test included, but its formatted like an actual exam to give you an authentic mock test day experience.
En bootcamp aprendes todo lo que necesitas para hacerte militar, rangos, armas, uniformes, reglas, regulaciones, disciplina, teamwork, respeto, etc, etc, etc,,, y mucha condicion fisica para estar en forma. Tambien es un test mental donde te empujan mentalmente, es todo un acto, si tienes sentido comun y haces lo que te digan, no tendras ningun problema, aparentas motivado, dedicado y se te hara nada, pero si te tomas a nivel personal cualquier griterio,,, mal te va a ir. No te tomes NADA a nivel persona, en un acto por actores profesionales que quieren sacar a los debiles fisica y mentalmente y a los que sean irresponsables y sin sentido de equipo.
Las naciones son unidades políticas y militares, pero no son necesariamente las unidades más importantes de la vida económica, ni son muy parecidas en un sentido económico. Lo que realmente tienen en común todas las naciones es el hecho político de su soberanía. Es más, la imposibilidad de los gobiernos nacionales de controlar las fuerzas económicas sugiere que las naciones son irrelevantes en la promoción del éxito económico.
0-9 No entrenable El Congreso de los EE. UU. Ha indicado que los militares no pueden aceptar reclutas de la Categoría V o más del 4 por ciento de los reclutas de la Categoría IV. Si está en la Categoría IV, debe tener un diploma de escuela secundaria para ser elegible para el alistamiento. Aun así, si usted es de Categoría IV, sus posibilidades de alistamiento son pequeñas y, en su mayoría, limitadas a la Guardia Nacional del Ejército.
Using this book for my ASVAB, I scored a 89. To study off of this, I would write down notes in Cornell format, and I would study off of my notes each night. I recommend you to take the practice tests that were provided after finishing your notes on each section. You could also use flash cards to study from this book, or interacting with the book directly. Like highlighting and underlining things, then going back to them and looking over them periodically. This book played a huge role for me getting a good score on my ASVAB
The Auto and Shop Information section of the ASVAB test measures your knowledge of automobile technology and basic repairs. The shop questions are about basic wood and metals. For example, you will encounter questions such as “Shock absorbers on a car connect the axle to the: wheel, chassis, drive shaft, or exhaust pipe?” You may be asked what sanding blocks are used for, followed by the following choices: preventing high spots and ridges on sanded surfaces, preventing dirt from collecting on the sandpaper, stretching the length of sandpaper, or prolonging the use of the sandpaper. The CAT-ASVAB test has two parts: the first part covering automotive material asks 11 questions in 7 minutes; the 11 shop information questions are allotted 6 minutes. The paper-and-pencil version asks 25 questions in 11 minutes.
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.

As you go along, keep in mind that the ASVAB practice test is just that: practice. Memorizing these questions and answers will not be very helpful on the actual test because it is unlikely to have any of the same exact questions. If you only know the right answers to the sample questions, you won’t be prepared for the real thing. Study the concepts until you understand them fully, and then you’ll be able to answer any question that shows up on the test.
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)
Now, one page over while showing how to multiply decimals, which is the same thing, they fail to do this and obtain a wrong answer. I'm a laid back guy and all, but I mean come on. That's pathetic. There is more, but this should suffice. After I found quite a few errors like this I just couldn't bring myself trust the other info in the book. I bought "Asvab for Dummies" and have found not one error in it.

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.

Great book I love the "dummies" series from the ones Ive read so far. It doesn't dance around all the silly intricate baloney but gets to the point quickly and concisely. I went to the book store to review other asvab book help test material and they seemed so long winded and I felt like I would eventually get lost on the page staring aimlessly at intricate details which after a while can become monotonous and confusing. My actual test is scheduled for next week, the practice tests seem to be very helpful but the real proof will be in the pudding... so I guess till the actual deed is done this is mostly speculation so I guess we'll see next week. Wish me luck! Thanks!
Getting a low score on the ASVAB might mean missing a chance at the military job you really want–or possibly not getting in the military at all. If the thought of taking the ASVAB has you stressed out, don’t worry- we’re here to help! Our free practice test for the ASVAB will help you identify areas or concepts you may struggle with understanding, so you can maximize the time you have to study and get the score you want the first time.
Understanding the ASVAB score range is to understand standard deviations. The highest score on the ASVAB is a 99 and the lowest score is a one. Scores are based on the mean of all examinees. This is to say that a score of 50 would account for an average score. Each increment of 10 represents a single standard deviation from the mean score. So, for example, a score of 80 would be three standard deviations better than the meanwhile a score of 30 would be two standard deviations lower than the mean score.
