In the 1950s, the military adopted a single exam known as the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT). Used as a screening tool, the AFQT measured a recruit’s ability to absorb military training and their future potential. It was supplemented by service-specific battery tests for the purposes of MOS classification. In 1972, the Department of Defense determined that all services should use one exam for screening and assigning individuals to an MOS. The AFQT was phased out over a two-year period in favor of the current Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test.
Great book I love the "dummies" series from the ones Ive read so far. It doesn't dance around all the silly intricate baloney but gets to the point quickly and concisely. I went to the book store to review other asvab book help test material and they seemed so long winded and I felt like I would eventually get lost on the page staring aimlessly at intricate details which after a while can become monotonous and confusing. My actual test is scheduled for next week, the practice tests seem to be very helpful but the real proof will be in the pudding... so I guess till the actual deed is done this is mostly speculation so I guess we'll see next week. Wish me luck! Thanks!
If practice does make perfect, then this book is designed to make you perfectly prepared for the ASVAB. There are nearly 2,000 (!) practice problems inside this book, as well as six full-length practice tests and with detailed explanations of the answers, online videos to explain critical technical concepts, subtests that cover the tricky math concepts more in-depth and plenty of flashcards. 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. If you like to study on the go, this book also comes with tear-out study pages and a mobile site. If you buy this book, you probably can ace the test without spending money on other guides.
The content of the test has been clearly laid out, but there is still a ton of information concerning the actual place where the test is administered and the time that is allocated for each section. The computerized test is administered in a “military entrance processing station” (MEP) or a satellite region that is identified as a “military entrance tests site” (MET). The difference in the two locations is that the METs are the places that are responsible for administering the written test, while MEPs are the places that administer the computerized tests.
