The way to prepare for this exam is study hard and then quiz yourself with plenty of practice ASVAB tests. Remember that the exam is identical for all branches, so an Army ASVAB practice test is exactly the same as an ASVAB practice test for the Navy. The most important components of the test are the ones that count towards the Armed Services Qualifications Test, or AFQT. These sections are Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning, and Math Knowledge. For tips and strategies for success on these questions, be sure to review our article on ASVAB Test Prep.
Las Fuerzas Armadas usan las calificaciones obtenidas por los alumnos en el ASVAB para identificar los empleos que mejor se acoplan a tus habilidades. Los alumnos de los primeros años, los de último año y los que están llevando estudios superiores pueden usar las calificaciones que obtuvieron en el ASVAB para alistarse hasta dos años después de haber rendido el examen.
These are sections, or sub-tests, in the ASVAB:  Word Knowledge (WK), Paragraph Comprehension (PC), Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), Mathematics Knowledge (MK), General Science (GS), Mechanical Comprehension (MC), Electronics Information (EI), and Assembling Objects (AO), Auto & Shop Information (AS):  * AI and SI are administered as separate tests in the CAT-ASVAB (computerized version), but combined into one single score (labeled AS).
The Mathematics Knowledge section of the exam measures your knowledge of various math areas, such as algebra and geometry. You may be asked to find the square root of a number or the volume of a brick with given dimensions. Algebraic problems may require finding the value of “y” in a given equation. A review of math symbols—such as ≠, ≤, and √—can help you solve the given problems much faster, and using our ASVAB math study guide to practice answering the algebra and geometry questions on the test can help increase your overall AFQT score. The CAT-ASVAB has 16 questions in 20 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 25 questions in 24 minutes.
The CAT-ASVAB is an adaptive test which means the test adapts to the ability of the test-taker. It is possible to administer a shorter test this way than with the pencil and paper test. When you complete a subsection of the test, you can then move onto the next section of the test without having to wait for an administrator. Subsections are still timed however and on average it takes about 1 ½ hours to complete the computer ASVAB.
It is critical to know how ASVAB scores are calculated and what they are used for.  The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) tests are used to identify whether a candidate is qualified to enlist in a particular branch of the U.S. Military.  The ASVAB test is also used to determine which military jobs (referred to as MOS for Military Occupational Specialties) a candidate is best suited for.  ASVAB scores can also be used by test takers to help explore which careers they may be a good fit for them – whether they go into the military or not. While no one officially passes or fails the ASVAB, each branch of the military has specific minimum scores required for enlistment.  Your scores also affect the type of military job, enlistment bonuses and salary you are eligible for.
AFQT scores are reported as percentiles between 1-99. An AFQT percentile score indicates the percentage of examinees in a reference group that scored at or below that particular score. For current AFQT scores, the reference group is a sample of 18 to 23 year old youth who took the ASVAB as part of a national study conducted in 1997. Thus, an AFQT score of 95 indicates that the examinee scored as well as or better than 95% of the nationally-representative sample of 18 to 23 year olds. An AFQT score of 60 indicates that the examinee scored as well as or better than 60% of the nationally-representative sample.
Por ejemplo, si recibe una puntuación percentil de 72, se puede decir que su puntaje es tan bien o mejor que 72 de 100 del grupo de la norma que tomaron el examen. (Y, por cierto, esta estadística a partir de 1997 no es un error tipográfico. El ASVAB última " re-normado " en 2004, y el grupo de la muestra utilizada para la norma era esa gente que tomaron el examen en 1997.)
Los Conocimientos matemáticos evalúan la capacidad de resolver problemas a partir del conocimiento de aplicaciones y conceptos matemáticos. Los problemas se enfocan en conceptos y algoritmos, e incluyen teoría de números, numeración, operaciones algebraicas y ecuaciones, geometría, medición y probabilidad. Los Conocimientos matemáticos son un factor que caracteriza la comprensión matemática; también evalúan el pensamiento lógico.

El Departamento de Defensa es una agencia oficial del Gobierno de Estados Unidos, por lo que (por supuesto) que no puede mantener las cosas simples. Cuando usted recibe sus resultados de puntuación ASVAB, que no se ve sólo una puntuación- ves varios. Echa un vistazo a un ejemplo de una tarjeta de puntuación ASVAB utilizado por los orientadores de secundaria.


Los servicios de prueba de Aptitud Vocacional de la Armada (ASVAB, por sus siglas en inglés) sen utiliza para evaluar las habilidades y destrezas de todos los postulantes a militares de EE.UU. La elegibilidad de las Fuerzas Armadas está determinada por la puntuación AFQT, que se compila a partir de cuatro áreas de prueba: conocimientos de matemáticas, comprensión de lectura, conocimientos de las palabras y razonamiento aritmético. Las puntuaciones se miden en un rango de muestras representativas del 1 al 99%. Los requisitos AFQT para los postulantes son los mismos que para los miembros en servicio activo.
“Le doy las gracias primero a Dios y a ustedes tambien. Los maestros estan bien capacitados y se enfocan a ayudar a jovenes y adultos a pasar el A.S.V.A.B, me siento bendecido porque llegue a pasar el A.S.V.A.B de mi primer intento. Al Prof. Willie muchas gracias, aprendi mucho en matemáticas en ese mes. A la Prof. Saby muchas gracias, aprendi mucho inglés. Mejor repaso que he cogido, si conociera a alguien que va a coger el A.S.V.A.B le hablare de ustedes. Gracias, los quiero !
The Mechanical Comprehension section of the ASVAB practice test measures your understanding of basic mechanical principles and mechanisms. You may be asked why an intake valve on a pump opens when the piston goes down, or what direction friction is going when shown a diagram of a skier. The CAT-ASVAB has 16 questions in 20 minutes; the paper-and-pencil version has 25 questions in 19 minutes.
The various armed forces adopted all of those aspects in 1976. At that point in time, the test was in its written form rather than today’s more common form (computerized test format). The written form covers all of the previously mentioned areas as well, which is why both forms are still available. All-in-all that answers the question concerning the intention of the test.
