The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB test is a standardized test administered by the United States Armed Services to all candidates seeking enlistment. The ASVAB must be taken by all candidates for enlistment regardless of whether the candidate seeks to enlist in the U. S. Army, U. S. Navy, U. S. Air Force, U. S. Marines Corps, U. S. Coast Guard or the U. S. National Guard. The ASVAB serves two purposes. The first purpose of the ASVAB is to test the candidate for enlistment’s qualification for enlistment. The second purpose of the ASVAB is to determine which profession within the U. S. Armed Services best fits the candidate’s particular skill set.
The ASVAB test consists of two sections. The first section of the ASVAB is a standardized multiple choice style format. The second section of the ASVAB consists of a written format. Both sections cover ten distinct subject areas including, (1) general science, (2)arithmetic reasoning, (3) word knowledge, (4) paragraph comprehension, (5) numerical operations, (6) coding speed, (7) auto and shop information, (8) mathematics knowledge, (9) mechanical comprehension and (10) electronics information.
Many people who have performed successfully on the ASVAB report that they prepared by taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test. By taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test the candidate for enlistment will accomplish two goals. The first goal is for the candidate to become more familiar with the ASVAB test format. The second goal is for the candidate to determine which subject areas covered by the test will require further study. Once the candidate for enlistment in the U. S. Armed Services has been properly prepared he or she can then perform successfully on the ASVAB test itself.
A successful performance on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery can be the gateway to an exciting career in the U. S. Armed Services. As such it is vitally important for the candidate for enlistment to properly prepare himself or herself by taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test.
