Ways to prepare for the ASVAB

ASVABArmed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery If you are considering joining the military you need to be familiar with the ASVAB. The ASVAB is a timed multi-aptitude test, which is given at over 14,000 schools and Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) nationwide and is developed and maintained by the Department of Defense (Military Advantage, 2014). The purpose of this battery of aptitude tests is to match a recruit with the military occupation specialty for which he or she will be most capable. Reynolds, Livingston & Willson (2009) state, "Aptitude tests are designed to measure the cognitive skills, abilities, and knowledge that individuals have accumulated as the result of their overall life experiences" (p. 331). Your scores in four critical areas: Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension and Mathematics Knowledge count towards your Armed Forces Qualifying Test (AFQT) score. The AFQT score determines whether you are qualified to enlist in the U.S. military (Military Advantage, 2014). If you have been paying attention in school, you should do well on the ASVAB. To get the highest score possible, you should take practice tests to familiarize yourself with ASVAB aptitude tests prior to taking these assessments.ReferencesAsvab. (2014).
