In complete honesty, one can say that the test identifies with an entire life's worth of knowledge. It essentially pulls from 3 different aspects. First, it draws from concrete facts that were acquired from all areas of a person's educational career. Secondly, it draws from a person’s ability to comprehend and use context clues to make assumptions. Lastly, it draws from a person’s physical/verbal skills to see if they can properly administer those more physical aspects. Overall this is why people have identified it as the “SAT on steroids.”

“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 !
If you are interested in taking the ASVAB in order to apply for the military, you will need to contact a military recruiter. To find a recruiter near you, go to http://www.todaysmilitary.com/ and click on “Request More Info.” When the recruiter has determined that you are otherwise qualified, he/she will set up a time for you to take the ASVAB at the closest Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) or an affiliated Military Entrance Test (MET) site.
Many high schools give students the opportunity to take the ASVAB as part of career exploration. If you chose not to take one in high school, then you will have to schedule a time to take it. You can contact the Armed Forces Recruiting Officer in your area and you can schedule an appointment with a local recruiter from the branch of the military you wish to join.

Los puntajes de la AFQT se utilizan para determinar la elegibilidad para el alistamiento y alinear a los postulantes con trabajos en las Fuerzas Armadas. Se debe tener en cuenta que es posible que a los reclutas no se les asigne su primera opción de carrera: cada rama del servicio ubica a los reclutas según una combinación de necesidad y los conocimientos y el área de fortaleza del individuo.


The CAT-ASVAB has a total of 145 questions with a time limit of 154 minutes. The CAT-ASVAB test questions are computer-adaptive, meaning that they either increase or decrease in difficulty level based on your responses to previous questions. The questions, therefore, are tailored to each test taker’s ability. There is a penalty for wrong answers on this exam, so guessing is not to your advantage. The time of test completion depends on your individual speed. If you finish a section before the allotted time, you can move forward to the next without waiting for the other test takers.
