The Military website and other resources online also offer study guides and other materials to help students prepare for the ASVAB.
Practice tests acclimate students to the ASVAB and enable them to identify consistent areas of weakness. Taking multiple tests gives students more data from which to ascertain weaknesses in specific subject areas.
The ASVAB consists of eight sections: general science, paragraph comprehension, arithmetic reasoning, electronics information, mathematics knowledge, mechanical comprehension, auto and shop information and word knowledge. Students might score better in some areas than others on practice tests, which identifies the subjects that are most difficult for them.
Students can take one practice test, study weak subjects and take additional practice tests. The more they prepare for the official ASVAB exam, the higher they are likely to score. The ASVAB is an important exam for anyone who intends to enlist in the United States military.
