Again, would you rather go into the ASVAB unsure of what to expect and not knowing if you studied the right things or would you prefer to have taken similar tests covering content commonly tested for on the real thing? Taking practice tests is a great way to build your knowledge, your confidence and your ASVAB familiarity so that you feel relaxed and confident on test day.

I normally don't care to do this, but I kind of felt like I had to with the number of errors in this book. I was actually liking the way it was setup and the tests and everything. I did find an error or two, which I shrugged off, most books have them. I keep reading, to find more and more and more. The thing is these weren't spelling errors. In fact, I didn't find one spelling error in my studies with this book. They were all information type errors. I can remember at least six off the top of my head. For example, in one single paragraph you are told invertebrates have no spine while vertebrates have no spine...yeah it caught me off guard too. One example from the math section, i forget which one, tells you (correctly) that you need to put your answer under the tens place when finding the product of, say, ten times twenty after you have multiplied the first number. It would look something like this: (did my best with the formatting)

The paper-and-pencil version of the test administered at a Mobile Examination Test (MET) site usually takes 3–4 hours. The time needed to take the CAT-ASVAB test can vary. The test is adaptive. If the candidates answer a question correctly, they are given one of increasing difficulty. If the candidates miss a question, they are subsequently given an easier item. This pattern continues until the test is finished. Because of its adaptive nature, the CAT-ASVAB test generally takes about half the time of the paper-and-pencil version.
Por ejemplo, si recibe una puntuación percentil de 72, se puede decir que su puntaje es tan bien o mejor que 72 de 100 del grupo de la norma que tomaron el examen. (Y, por cierto, esta estadística a partir de 1997 no es un error. El ASVAB fue la última “re-normado” en 2004, y el grupo de muestra utilizada para la norma era esas personas que tomaron el examen en 1997.)
El examen ASVAB (Examen de Aptitud Vocacional para las Fuerzas Armadas, por sus siglas en inglés) es una prueba de varias aptitudes que se toma en más de 14,000 escuelas y MEPS (Centro de Procesamiento de Entrada a las Fuerzas Armadas, por sus siglas en inglés) de todo el país, y es desarrollado y actualizado por el Departamento de Defensa. En la actualidad, para prepararse para el enlistamiento en la Air National Guard, los estudiantes pueden tomar pruebas de práctica del ASVAB, que se pueden encontrar en Internet con facilidad. Estas pruebas les darán una idea de la calificación que obtendrán e identificarán las áreas en las que puede ser necesario mejorar. Es probable que la biblioteca pública también tenga libros y materiales que puedan ser de ayuda para estudiar para el ASVAB. Una vez que el estudiante esté listo para realizar el ASVAB, debe comunicarse con el agente de reclutamiento de la Air National Guard más cercano. El agente de reclutamiento de la Air National Guard concertará una cita para el estudiante en el MEPS más cercano, a fin de determinar su elegibilidad para enlistarse en la Air National Guard.

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:
If you look at more than one test in this book, you'll notice something--they are all basically the same, and have many of the same questions, just with different numbers. There's always a family of (number of people), with (number of dinner rolls), and the book asks how many rolls each family member will have to eat if they're split evenly. This question, while too easy for the arithmetic reasoning section in the first place, appears in every single test! Some of the paragraphs in the paragraph comprehension sections are repeated word for word, with a slight difference in question (that usually still doesn't make sense or has the incorrect answer listed as correct.)
Los puntajes de la AFQT se utilizan para determinar la elegibilidad para el alistamiento y alinear a los postulantes con trabajos en las Fuerzas Armadas. Se debe tener en cuenta que es posible que a los reclutas no se les asigne su primera opción de carrera: cada rama del servicio ubica a los reclutas según una combinación de necesidad y los conocimientos y el área de fortaleza del individuo.
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.
Are you really saving money with so-called free apps? Not if you want to use all of their features and see all of their questions. That will require an expensive in-app purchase. Our leading competitors charge more for fewer questions. You could try a free app with ads and have your studying constantly interrupted. Do you want to be offered great military job choices or are you more interested in saving less than what you blow at the junk food place for lunch?
As former Secretary of State for Defense Donald Rumsfeld once famously said, “There are known knowns. There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say; there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don't know.” If you want to ace the ASVAB, you need to identify your personal unknown unknowns — and this is precisely what Peterson’s guide is uniquely qualified to help you do. This book begins with the absolute best diagnostic test of any review book, which will help you hone in on exactly what you need to focus your studying efforts on. This book also is one of the wordiest, meaning every topic you’ll encounter on test day, and more is sure to show up inside. In addition to the great diagnostic test and four full-length practice tests, the guide includes a full overview of military positions you’ll be qualified for based on your score for extra incentive to do your best.
The Mechanical Comprehension section of the ASVAB practice test measures your understanding of basic mechanical principles and mechanisms. You may be asked why an intake valve on a pump opens when the piston goes down, or what direction friction is going when shown a diagram of a skier. The CAT-ASVAB has 16 questions in 20 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 25 questions in 19 minutes.
After adding so much information to the aptitude test, there was a bit of difficulty interpreting the test results. In addition to that, a vast majority of test takers were deemed as being under qualified based on their test results. This is why the percentile change was made. It ensured that a 50% actually correlated with a person doing better than 50% of the test takers. Those revisions have worked hand-in-hand with the preparation of the armed forces.
