If you're serious about joining the military, then get serious about the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB).
The ASVAB is a timed multi-aptitude test, which is given at more than 14,000 schools and Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) nationwide and is developed and maintained by the Defense Department.
Start now by taking our practice ASVAB tests (click on the test links in the header above). These tests will give you an idea of how you'll score and identify areas for improvement. Then use our suggested resources and ASVAB study guides to learn how to prepare for the ASVAB test.
Your scores in four critical areas -- arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension and mathematics knowledge (see below) -- count toward your Armed Forces Qualifying Test (AFQT) score. The AFQT score determines whether you're qualified to enlist in the U.S. military.
Your scores in the other areas of the ASVAB will determine how qualified you are for certain military occupational specialties (MOS) and enlistment bonuses. A high score will improve your chances of getting the specialty/job and signing bonus you want.
Scoring high on the ASVAB will require study and concentration. Don't skimp on preparing for this test. It's your future. Get the most out of it.
