The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery — affectionately called the ASVAB by military personnel — is the test that military recruiters use to determine whether you’re eligible for service in the U.S. Armed Forces. Don’t let that scare you, though. With the right preparation (and this book), you’ll be well-prepared to take the test and join the military branch of your choice.
Four sections of the ASVAB determine your Armed Forces Qualification Test score, or AFQT: Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Mathematics Knowledge, and Arithmetic Reasoning. The military calculates your score on these four subtests to find out whether you qualify for service. Your recruiter will use your AFQT score and your scores on the other five subtests (which are all covered in ASVAB For Dummies) to zero in on the jobs you’re most qualified to perform in the Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy, or Coast Guard.
This book gives you 1,001 carefully crafted practice questions to help you prepare for the ASVAB AFQT. The questions are similar to those you’ll see on the actual ASVAB, so by the time you’re finished working your way through them, you’ll be confident in your ability to ace the AFQT portion of the test … and you’ll be well on your way to becoming the military’s latest and greatest recruit.
