Life, Liberty And The Pursuit Of All Who Threaten It.
If you are anything like me you want to know as much as you can about the enlisting process which includes the ASVAB. Your recruiter won’t be able to tell you much and most won’t be able to suggest study material. I spent my first six months studying for the ASVAB after I failed my pre-ASVAB the first time. So let me back up and tell you what the pre-ASVAB is what why it is so important.
Unless you have just graduated and already been in contact with a recruiter who has assured you that your high school ASVAB score is acceptable, then the pre-ASVAB is nothing to be concerned about.
Pre-ASVAB / Practice ASVAB
The pre-ASVAB is a short four topic test that is taken at the recruiter’s office or at MEPS. If I remember properly that it was four sections and forty-five questions. The practice ASVAB is not as hard as the real ASVAB or the full practice ASVAB that you can get from online sources or the bookstore. I personally used McGraw-Hill’s ASVAB, I tried to find one that was up to date. This particular study material has four tests and a CD with more tests, I found it at books-a-million for $30.00.
The Real ASVAB
To re-take the ASVAB you will have to speak with a branch recruiter about a retake and they will schedule you to re-take the test at MEPS. If you have to see a recruiter you are in no way obligated to join or continue to talk with that recruiter or branch after you take the ASVAB.
Type of Tests:
