El ASVAB es agotador. Usted tiene que tomar nueve subpruebas que cubren algunos temas muy diversos. Usted tiene cerca de tres horas para completar la prueba real, por lo que si se pierde el foco, mientras que usted está tomando la prueba, el tiempo tiene una tendencia de deslizamiento de distancia, y no puede llegar a todas las preguntas. Es difícil, pero mantenerse enfocado en la tarea a lo largo de toda la prueba. Va a ser más pronto.
If you were a good student in school, you are probably competent in basic math, science, vocabulary and paragraph analysis. But mechanical skills? That’s not something you use every day. Thankfully, Mometrix’s ASVAB study guide has one of the most challenging and thorough overviews of the mechanical knowledge you’ll need for the test. Inside, you’ll find an in-depth review of different essential topics, including an entire section devoted to assembling objects. You’ll also learn the basic physics you need to master subjects such as calculating velocity, friction and the movement of fluids. If you want a more specific explanation of a concept in the book, you can scan the video code and pull up a more advanced tutorial in Mometrix Academy. Another helpful inclusion is a review book that reminds you of common test anxieties and how to overcome them.
Las Fuerzas Armadas usan las calificaciones obtenidas por los alumnos en el ASVAB para identificar los empleos que mejor se acoplan a tus habilidades. Los alumnos de los primeros años, los de último año y los que están llevando estudios superiores pueden usar las calificaciones que obtuvieron en el ASVAB para alistarse hasta dos años después de haber rendido el examen.
Dos de las cuatro partes que componen su AFQT son los exámenes de matemáticas. La primera, razonamiento aritmético, pone a prueba su capacidad de usar las matemáticas para resolver diversos problemas que pueden surgir en la vida real - en otras palabras, problemas de matemáticas. El segundo, conocimientos matemáticos, pone a prueba su capacidad para resolver problemas generales de matemáticas. Estos son algunos consejos para ayudar a maximizar su puntuación ASVAB subprueba de matemáticas:

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.

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 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.
The ASVAB was created in 1968. By 1976, all branches of the military began using this test. In 2002, the test underwent many revisions, but its main goal of gauging a person’s basic skills remained the same. Today, there is a computerized version of the test as well as a written version. The Department of Defense developed this test and it’s taken by students in thousands of schools across the country. It is also given at Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS).

All test takers are given a summary results sheet that shows their percentile score in every test area. A percentile score of 50 means that a score was achieved that was better than 50 percent of all test takers. Percentile scores are given specifically for test takers of their gender and their grade level. Information obtained from the test is only shared with agencies within the Department of Defense. Test takers are informed that their specific scores will be used for up to two years for recruiting purposes. After two years, test scores will be used for research purposes only.
Los miembros de la Reserva de la Fuerza Aérea son responsables del 20% de los trabajos realizados por la Fuerza Aérea. Un número creciente de ellos están trabajando en puestos de reservistas a tiempo completo, en ingeniería civil, mantenimiento aeroespacial, apoyo a las misiones y operaciones de la tripulación aérea. Para calificar para el alistamiento en las Fuerzas Aéreas, necesitas un puntaje AFQT de 36 si tienes un diploma de escuela secundaria, y una puntuación AFQT 65 si tienes un GED.
It’s best to keep the contact information of your nearest recruiting office or your actual recruiter; they are your best bet for getting your scores. ASVAB scores are valid for up to two years before you need to retest so most offices will send your current scores via mail. If you can’t get yours by mail, you can pick them up from your local recruiting office.

The various armed forces adopted all of those aspects in 1976. At that point in time, the test was in its written form rather than today’s more common form (computerized test format). The written form covers all of the previously mentioned areas as well, which is why both forms are still available. All-in-all that answers the question concerning the intention of the test.
