In the 1950s, the military adopted a single exam known as the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT). Used as a screening tool, the AFQT measured a recruit’s ability to absorb military training and their future potential. It was supplemented by service-specific battery tests for the purposes of MOS classification. In 1972, the Department of Defense determined that all services should use one exam for screening and assigning individuals to an MOS. The AFQT was phased out over a two-year period in favor of the current Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test.

This pattern continues until the test is finished. Because of its adaptive nature, the CAT-ASVAB test generally takes about half the time of the paper-and-pencil version.

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.
