The ASVAB is a series of timed aptitude tests that are used to classify selected candidates into appropriate job roles as well as ultimately decide the eligibility of candidates for US military service.  In other words, perform poorly on this test and you could severely limit your opportunities in the military or even prevent yourself from serving.

Direcciones: Comprensión es la cuarta subprueba en el ASVAB. Las preguntas están diseñadas para medir su capacidad de comprender lo que se lee.

Los Conocimientos matemáticos evalúan la capacidad de resolver problemas a partir del conocimiento de aplicaciones y conceptos matemáticos. Los problemas se enfocan en conceptos y algoritmos, e incluyen teoría de números, numeración, operaciones algebraicas y ecuaciones, geometría, medición y probabilidad. Los Conocimientos matemáticos son un factor que caracteriza la comprensión matemática; también evalúan el pensamiento lógico.
These tests, again the high quality ones, are formatted like the real thing so you can get used to the question and answer formats and the time limits so nothing will be a surprise on test day. You’ll know what to expect and you’ll be used to going from different concept to different concept as is often required on the ASVAB. For example, on the math section you may have a problem using one popular math principle followed by another problem that relies on a completely different principle. This is common on a broad test like the ASVAB and preparing your mind to make these leaps can allow you to answer more questions in less time and boost your score.
The ASVAB also known as the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is a test that measures your aptitude which is how well you do something.  A common mistake by most people is thinking that it is a measure of you IQ. Many people either forget this or don’t know this and they get worked up about the exam.  Saying that, it is also important to take a ASVAB sample test to insure you know what type of questions will be asked.    Another thing to keep in mind is every person in the armed forces has to take the exam and you are not being called out to take it. 

You've decided to enlist—congratulations! Taking the ASVAB is the first big step to beginning your work in the military; the test helps determine the entire course of your military career. This book gives you everything you need to score high on the exam and get the military job you want. It includes review and practice questions for each of the ASVAB's nine subtests, as well as 3 full-length ASVAB and 2 AFQT practice exams, detailed test-taking tips, and more.


Las Ciencias generales evalúan la capacidad de responder preguntas sobre una variedad de temas científicos que se enseñan en la mayoría de las escuelas secundarias. Los temas de biología abarcan botánica, zoología, anatomía y fisiología y ecología. Los temas de las ciencias de la tierra y el espacio están basados en astronomía, geología, meteorología y oceanografía. Los temas de las ciencias físicas miden la fuerza y la mecánica del movimiento, la energía, los líquidos, la estructura atómica y la química.
We took the diagnostic tests (all of them) and found so many errors it was appalling. For many of the arithmetic reasoning questions, the correct answer is not even listed, and when you look at the answer explanations, they are very odd. One told me that from 6:30 am to 11:15 am is five hours. Last time I checked, that's 4 hours and 45 minutes. The paragraph comprehension sections always have issues, and the word knowledge is ridiculous.
Los puntajes de AFQT se agrupan en cinco categorías principales según los rangos de puntaje percentil. Las categorías III y IV se dividen en subgrupos porque los servicios a veces usan esta tabla para fines de seguimiento interno, límites de alistamiento e incentivos de alistamiento. En función de sus puntajes, el ejército decide qué tan entrenable puede ser para realizar trabajos en el servicio.
El (Fuerzas Armadas Qualifying Test) puntuación AFQT es posiblemente la puntuación ASVAB más importante, ya que determina si usted es elegible para unirse a la rama militar de su elección. Aunque el AFQT es a menudo llamado el " puntuación ASVAB general, " eso no es del todo correcto, porque se deriva de sólo cuatro subpruebas: Expresión Verbal (VE), que se calcula a partir de la comprensión de lectura (PC) y Word Conocimiento (WK) subpruebas, razonamiento aritmético (AR) y Matemáticas Conocimiento (MK).
In order to take the ASVAB at a MEPS for enlistment purposes, an individual will need to speak with a recruiter and schedule a time to take the test. ASVAB testing at a MEPS is self-paced and taken on a computer, and it may be retaken after a one-month waiting period.  Entitled the CAT-ASVAB, the test is adaptive – meaning it adapts to your ability level.
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.
Additionally, many ASVAB practice tests have a section explaining the answer choices. It can be tempting to read the explanation and think that you now have a good understanding of the concept. However, an explanation likely only covers part of the question’s broader context. Even if the explanation makes sense, go back and investigate every concept related to the question until you’re positive you have a thorough understanding.
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:
