Concentrarse en áreas que necesitan ser mejoradas. Es la naturaleza humana para encontrar gastando su tiempo de estudio en las materias que usted tiene un interés en o que es bueno. Si usted es un genio en la fijación de los coches, no pierda su tiempo estudiando la información de auto. Ya vas a as aquella parte de la prueba, ¿verdad? Por otro lado, si usted tenía un tiempo duro en matemáticas durante sus años de escuela secundaria, tiene que pasar más tiempo puliendo sus habilidades aritméticas.
A military recruiter determines if the candidate is a possible recruit. A recruiter will ask about marital status, health, education, drug use, and arrest record. It is important for the candidate to be upfront and truthful when answering questions. Once the recruiter has determined the individual is qualified for additional processing, the ASVAB is scheduled. A physical examination may also be conducted at the time of the test.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is one of the most widely used multiple-aptitude test batteries in the world. It was originally designed to predict success in military occupations and is used today to help both those considering entering the military (mostly high school-aged students, but also anyone who is eligible to enlist) as well as those not interested in military service (who comprise the majority of current ASVAB test takers) what sort of career may be the best fit for them. Scores from the ASVAB can be used when enlisting in the military. Students interested in taking the ASVAB should check with their high school to find out when and if the ASVAB will be offered at their school. If it is not offered, students should meet with their guidance counselor to determine if it is possible to schedule a testing session in the future. There is no cost to take the ASVAB.
For almost a century, the U.S. military has been a pioneer in the field of using aptitude tests to evaluate an individual’s potential for service. The organization also uses the test to determine aptitude for various military occupational specialties (MOS). The use of aptitude tests began during World War I. While the group-administered Army Alpha test measured verbal and numerical ability as well as general knowledge, the Army Beta test was used to evaluate illiterate, unschooled and non-English speaking volunteers and draftees. The Army and Navy General Classifications Tests replaced the Alpha and Beta tests as a means to measure cognitive ability during World War II. The results of these tests, as well as additional classification exams, were used to assign recruits to a particular MOS.
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.
I bought this book and ASVAB AVQT for Dummies for my son who was (at the time and now IS) going into the Navy when he graduates this year. I was skeptical at first, wondering if 1. he would actually use them and 2. would they really help him get a better score. He had a VERY high goal score because the particular job he wanted to qualify for required a high score. We were not disappointed. I helped him study, we didn't need flash cards or anything else, just these books! Well, he made the score for the job he wanted. Great books, worth the investment unless you just want to coast (see what I did there?) by and pass. I have to add, I'm so proud of my son! GO NAVY!
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.
La Reserva del Ejército ofrece más de 150 especialidades ocupacionales militares en campos como la mecánica, la informática y la tecnología, la construcción, la ingeniería, el transporte y la aviación. Para unirte a la Reserva del Ejército, debes ser un ciudadano de los EE.UU., tener entre 17 y 35 años de edad, estar en buen estado físico y tener una buena reputación moral. Aunque el ASVAB no es una prueba del tipo de aprobado o desaprobado, tendrás que obtener un mínimo de 31 puntos en el AFQT para calificar para el alistamiento en el Ejército.
Since 1976, the multiple-choice ASVAB has been used for initial aptitude screening as well as MOS classification. The exam has changed since its inception. While some parts have remained, such as arithmetic reasoning and word knowledge, others like tool knowledge have been removed in favor of questions related to assembling objects. After nearly 20 years of research and development, a computer-adaptive version of the exam was implemented in 1996. The CAT-ASVAB is the first large-scale adaptive battery test to be administered in high-stakes environments like a Military Entrance Processing Station. The paper and pencil, or P&P version is still used at a variety of other military testing sites.

En la mayoría de los casos, los individuos en el programa de entrada retardada (DEP) no pueden volver a probar. Una excepción notable es el Programa de Enriquecimiento DEP de la Armada. Este programa prevé el alistamiento DEP provisional de los graduados de secundaria con calificaciones AFQT entre 28 y 30. Los individuos alistados bajo el programa están inscritos en el entrenamiento mejora académica, repetir la prueba con el ASVAB, y se accede al servicio activo, siempre y cuando la puntuación 31 o más en la retest ASVAB posterior.
Civil Affairs Specialists identify critical requirements needed by local citizens in combat or crisis situations. Civil Affairs Specialists are primarily responsible for researching, coordinating, conducting and participating in the planning and production of civil affairs related documents, while enabling the civil-military operations of the supported commander.
Siempre existe la posibilidad que se le asigne un despliegue militar. Cuando surgen problemas en un estado, el gobernador puede reclutar a la Air National Guard para que realice ciertas tareas, entre ellas, rescates aéreos, misiones de respuesta médica o asistencia a las autoridades locales durante un desastre natural. Del mismo modo, el presidente puede reclutar a la Air National Guard para respaldar una misión de defensa interna del país. Se hace todo lo posible por emplear a voluntarios en primera instancia y, en algunos casos, se asignan despliegues a otras personas cuando no hay suficientes voluntarios disponibles para cumplir con los requisitos de la misión.
The ASVAB test is taken by individuals interested in joining the U.S. military. It may be taken by high school students in the 10th, 11th or 12th grade. Or, it may be taken by someone who has earned a GED or higher degree. Along with determining your suitability for enlistment, the score you receive on this test lets officials know what military occupational specialties you may qualify for.
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 book contains a diagnostic test, plus three full-length practice tests that replicate the actual format and timing of the ASVAB, so you can “practice for real” before test day. Two of the book’s practice tests are included on our TestWare® CD with automatic, instant scoring analysis and powerful diagnostic feedback. On-screen detailed explanations of answers help you pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, allowing you to focus on areas in need of further study. Our complete ASVAB test prep package also includes an 8-week study schedule and test-taking strategies for succeeding on the exam.
This was an excellent study guide for the ASVAB! I had graduated high school over 7 years ago so being able to brush up on my algebra and geometry was extremely helpful. It was an easy read and with 4 or 5 practice tests I felt prepared when the day to take the test actually came. I wasn't blindsided by any of the questions because the format was so similar to this book.
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.
In complete honesty, one can say that the test identifies with an entire life's worth of knowledge. It essentially pulls from 3 different aspects. First, it draws from concrete facts that were acquired from all areas of a person's educational career. Secondly, it draws from a person’s ability to comprehend and use context clues to make assumptions. Lastly, it draws from a person’s physical/verbal skills to see if they can properly administer those more physical aspects. Overall this is why people have identified it as the “SAT on steroids.”
