El ASVAB no tiene un puntaje general. Cuando escuchas a alguien decir: "Obtuve un 80 en mi ASVAB", esa persona está hablando de la puntuación de la Prueba de Calificación de las Fuerzas Armadas (AFQT), no de una puntuación general de ASVAB. El puntaje de AFQT determina si usted incluso califica para alistarse en el ejército, y solo cuatro de las subpruebas se utilizan para calcularlo:
The four most important sections of the test—Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning, and Mathematics Knowledge-make up your Armed Forces Qualifications Test (AFQT) score. Your AFQT score ranges from 0 to 100 and determines if you are able to enlist in the military and which jobs and programs you may qualify for when you are in.
Guardia Costera (Coast se reserva incluyendo la Guardia): La Guardia Costera requiere un mínimo de 40 puntos en la AFQT. Una renuncia es posible para los solicitantes con los servicios anteriores si sus puntuaciones de línea ASVAB (que se calculan a partir de las distintas subpruebas ASVAB) a calificar para un trabajo específico y que están dispuestos a dar de alta en ese trabajo. Para las pocas personas (menos del 5 por ciento) que se les permite dar de alta con un GED, la puntuación mínima es de 50 AFQT.
The first step that one will take after deciding to pursue a career in the military is taking the Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Battery test. This is more commonly referred to as the ASVAB. The ASVAB not only determines whether or not a candidate is qualified to serve in the armed forces but also shows which specific job they have the most aptitude for.
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.
This book was worth every nickel in preparing me for the ASVAB. I was at MEPS on Thursday and Friday this week and absolutely destroyed the ASVAB, earning an AFQT composite score of 96. If you actually take the time and read this book, memorize, memorize, memorize the info presented, and practice all of the tests, you will succeed in getting the score you need for your desired job. The information contained is up-to-date and the format is easy to understand and follow.

Wow, it changed my whole perspective on what was going to be on the actual test. A lot of the things in the practice test were things I really didn't know, especially in the mechanical and electronics knowledge. Of course, those sections don't exactly count unless you're pursuing a job in those fields, but a lot of the knowledge in the practice tests is very useful. Having not taken a mathematics course for awhile, it was good to retest my abilities on their problems. Whether or not you really want to score high on your ASVAB, I would suggest it just for keeping you sharp.
After adopting the test in 1976 the test became a way of indicating whether or not an individual was 100% qualified to serve. As previously mentioned this aptitude test has a colorful history. That is because it underwent a dramatic change in 2002 and another dramatic change in 2004. The change that occurred in 2002 expanded the categories of the test and the overall difficulty. This can be seen by the addition of all of the diverse categories below:
