la prueba de Aptitud Vocacional de las Fuerzas Armadas, por lo general abreviado a simplemente ASVAB es una prueba propuesta por el ejército de Estados Unidos para ayudar a evaluar los niveles de habilidades y conocimientos básicos de los candidatos. En general, resultados de las pruebas determinan la aceptación en las fuerzas armadas y en qué área te pueden sobresalir. Los resultados se dan como ASVAB puntuaciones estándar, lo que significa que los números reportados están relacionados con la forma en la población en las puntuaciones generales en la misma prueba. Las puntuaciones de 50 o más significa que su puntuación es buena o mejor que la media nacional. Los puntajes inferiores a 50 indican que se marca menos de la media.
The categories of the Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery are the following: General Science (GS); Arithmetic Reasoning (AR); Word Knowledge (WK); Paragraph Comprehension (PC); Auto and Shop Information (AS); Mathematics Knowledge (MK); Mechanical Comprehension (MC); Electronics Information (EI); and Sum of Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension (VE).
After a candidate has completed the ASVAB they must wait one calendar month before retaking the exam. An additional calendar month must pass before retesting a second time. Six calendar months must pass before retaking the test a third time. The scores received from the ASVAB may be used for enlistment for up to two years from the initial test date. 

To enlist in the United States armed forces, you must take an entrance examination called the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). The ASVAB test helps the military determine your qualifications for enlistment. The ASVAB first appeared in 1968. By 1976 it was required by all branches of the military. The test was completely redone in 2002.
After adopting the test in 1976 the test became a way of indicating whether or not an individual was 100% qualified to serve. As previously mentioned this aptitude test has a colorful history. That is because it underwent a dramatic change in 2002 and another dramatic change in 2004. The change that occurred in 2002 expanded the categories of the test and the overall difficulty.
