Are they planning to take the ASVAB test — Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery? Wondering what the ASVAB is? Here are some answers
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is a required test administered to anyone interested in enlisting in any of the US Armed Service branches. Minimum scores must be met in order to be able to enlist as well as to qualify for specific higher up positions within the armed services.
If you don’t meet the minimum score for enlistment or specific positions you want, you will have to wait six months before you can take the test again. The best way to earn higher scores is to study and practice. Check out ASVAB practice books in your local library, book store, or through online book sellers like Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com.
Using an online practice website is another great way to prepare for the test. Here is a website that provides free practice tests for all categories of the ASVAB so those interested in joining the military can get a sense of the questions they will expect to see on the ASVAB.
