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.

El ASVAB es uno de los exámenes de aptitud múltiple más usados en el mundo, desarrollado y mantenido por el Departamento de Defensa. Más de la mitad de preparatorias aplican el examen ASVAB a estudiantes que se encuentran en los grados 10, 11, 12 (los que se encuentran en segundo año de la secundaria no pueden usar las calificaciones obtenidas para estar aptos al alistamiento). Los estudiantes también pueden presentar el examen en otra escuela o a través de un reclutador y pueden volver a dar el examen en cualquier momento que lo deseen.

As a general rule of thumb, anything over an 85 on the ASVAB will qualify you for nearly any position in the armed forces. But there are slight breakdowns within each score. For example, in order to qualify for Surveillance and Communications (SC) in the Army, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning, Auto & Shop and Mechanical Comprehension all require high marks. Though scoring an 85 or above would guarantee you scored in a high enough percentile to qualify for SC.
Our ASVAB practice test questions are categorized to help you focus your study. Just like in the real exam, each of our questions will have four possible answers to choose from. The questions are similar to what you can expect on the actual ASVAB exam. After you submit answers to the practice questions, a test score will be presented. In addition, you will be given rationales (explanations) to all of the questions to help you understand any questions you may have gotten wrong.
If practice does make perfect, then this book is designed to make you perfectly prepared for the ASVAB.

The online resources you’ll have access to let you customize your practice problems based on your strengths and weaknesses, as well as the difficulty of the questions. The book also helps you develop useful strategies for tackling vocabulary and math questions that can sometimes prove tricky.

Los interesados en enlistarse en la Air National Guard que nunca hayan prestado servicio antes deben tener entre 17 y 39 años de edad, ser ciudadanos o residentes permanentes legales de EE. UU., estar en el último año de la escuela secundaria o tener un diploma de la escuela secundaria o un certificado GED (Examen de Desarrollo Educacional General, por sus siglas en inglés). Deberán aprobar un examen escrito llamado ASVAB (Examen de Aptitud Vocacional para las Fuerzas Armadas, por sus siglas en inglés) y también un examen físico (médico) de ingreso. Con los resultados de la prueba ASVAB y el examen físico, el agente local de reclutamiento observará los puestos disponibles dentro de la unidad local para ver qué puestos de trabajo podrían interesarle al postulante. Una vez que se selecciona el puesto de trabajo, puede programarse un día para su enlistamiento e incorporación en la Air National Guard. Todos los pasos anteriores a la toma del juramento son parte de un proceso preliminar y no generan una obligación de enlistamiento.
This book is an absolute bargain. Barron’s walks you through the theories behind each core area of the ASVAB and, rather than having practice questions all come at the end, integrates them into each chapter so that you can check your progress along the way. Each section is very detail-oriented, ensuring that you won’t miss anything you might encounter on the exam. The book comes with four full-length exams, two additional exams on an included CD and an unusually thorough guide to the “assembling objects” component of the exam, one of the hardest to master. There’s also a section on analyzing your scores once you’ve taken the exam, and to see how your aptitudes will prepare you for (or hinder you from) various military career paths. Unfortunately, this book doesn’t come with flashcards or diagrams, so you might want to supplement your studies with another book on our list.
This will show you exactly what your weak areas are, and where you need to devote more study time. Ask yourself why each of these questions gave you trouble. Was it because you didn’t understand the material? Was it because you didn’t remember the vocabulary? Do you need more repetitions on this type of question to build speed and confidence? Dig into those questions and figure out how you can strengthen your weak areas as you go back to review the material.
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!

El (Fuerzas Armadas Qualifying Test) 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 a menudo se llama la “puntuación general ASVAB,” eso no es del todo correcto, porque se deriva de sólo cuatro subpruebas: Expresión Verbal (VE), que se calcula a partir de la Comprensión (PC) y conocimiento de las palabras subpruebas (WK), razonamiento aritmético (AR), y Matemáticas conocimiento (MK).

If you are pressed for time, it may be worthwhile to look into future ASVAB test dates in order to plan ahead in case you get a poor score on your upcoming ASVAB test. You can check with your high school counselor or your military recruiter to make sure that you will be eligible to take future tests along with your planned upcoming test date in the event that you get a bad ASVAB score.
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.
