Grammar Hero believes ASVAB prep should be an experience that prepares you for the test as well as for any challenges you may face during your career in the military. Of course, he also believes everyone should have access to high-quality test prep, not just those who can afford it.

This practice test covers the four subtests that determine your AFQT score, notably `Word Knowledge (WK)`

, `Arithmetic Reasoning (AR)`

, `Paragraph Comprehension (PC)`

It depends on which version you take. More often than not, you’ll take the computer-adaptive version of the ASVAB at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS), and it takes approximately three hours and twenty minutes to complete. The CAT-ASVAB consists of the following subtests, number of questions, and time limits.

Subtest | Questions | Time Limit (Minutes) |
---|---|---|

General Science (GS) | 16 | 8 |

Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) | 16 | 39 |

Word Knowledge (WK) | 16 | 8 |

Paragraph Comprehension (PC) | 11 | 22 |

Mathematics Knowledge (MK) | 16 | 20 |

Electronics Information (EI) | 16 | 8 |

Auto Information (AI) | 11 | 7 |

Shop Information (SI) | 11 | 6 |

Mechanical Comprehension (MC) | 16 | 20 |

Assembling Objects (AO) | 16 | 16 |

In general, the ASVAB is offered year-round. If you’re still in high school, you can contact your school’s guidance counselor, and he or she will help you register for an ASVAB test that will likely be given at your school. Otherwise,
you can contact your local military recruiter, and if you’re eligible, they should initiate the process for you.

It depends, since ASVAB scores are valid for two years from the date you take the test. In light of that, the following restrictions apply:

After each attempt on the ASVAB, you must wait at least 30 days before you can take it again; and
After your third attempt, you will be required to wait six months between each attempt.

Your recruiter will have the most up-to-date information about this, insofar as the military sometimes changes its policy.

Your recruiter will have the most up-to-date information about this, insofar as the military sometimes changes its policy.

Again, the ASVAB has two different math subtests, notably the Arithmetic Reasoning and Mathematics Knowledge subtests.

Generally, the Arithmetic Reasoning subtest includes the following topics:

absolute value
prime numbers
multiplication and long division, including with fractions and decimals
exponents, radicals, scientific notation
factorials
order of operations
ratio, proportion, and rates
percentages
mean, median, mode
probability
word problems involving distance, rate, and time, combined work, ratio and proportion, and percent increase or decrease

Generally, the Mathematics Knowledge subtest includes the following topics:

factoring
solving systems of equations
inequalities
lines and angles (e.g., right, acute, obtuse, vertical, and supplementary)
triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles
area, perimeter, and similarity
solid geometry: surface area and volume
coordinate geometry (e.g., linear equations, slope, slope-intercept form, and distance between points)

Generally, the Arithmetic Reasoning subtest includes the following topics:

Generally, the Mathematics Knowledge subtest includes the following topics:

Not surprisingly, I would recommend Grammar Hero’s YouTube Channel. There, you’ll find videos for just about every topic that’ll show up on the ASVAB. Apart from that, I would recommend checking out a copy of ASVAB for Dummies or a
similar study guide from your local library. In light of the fact that a lot of people are turned away from military service due to underlying medical conditions, I would not recommend buying any test prep materials or paying for tutoring.

As mentioned above, AFQT stands for Armed Forces Qualification Test, and it computed by averaging your scores on the Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Mathematics Knowledge, and Arithmetic Reasoning subtests. In short, your AFQT
score is used by each branch of the military to determine if you are eligible for enlistment. Beyond that, it is what the military uses to gauge your level of trainability.

AFQT scores are ranked in the following categories:

Category I: 93–99
Category II: 65–92
Category IIIA: 50–64
Category IIIB: 31–49
Category IVA: 21–30
Category IVB: 16–20
Category IVC: 10–15
Category V: 0–9

AFQT scores are ranked in the following categories:

Air Force – To join the Air Force, you need minimum AFQT score of 36. If you have a high school equivalency degree but have not completed at least 15 hours college credit, you need a minimum ASVAB score of 65. Of all the branches, the Air Force is the most selective.

Army – To join the Army, you need a minimum AFQT score of 31. If you have a high school equivalency degree , you need a minimum AFQT score of 50.

Coast Guard – To join the Coast Guard, you need a minimum AFQT score of 40. Those with only a high school equivalency degree need a minimum AFQT score of at least 50 and, in addition, should have at least 15 hours of college credit.

Marine Corps – To join the Marine Corps, you need a minimum AFQT score of 32. If you have a high school equivalency degree, you need a minimum AFQT score of 50.

Navy – To join the Navy, you need a minimum AFQT score of 35. Those with only a high school equivalency degree need a minimum AFQT score of at least 50 and, in addition, should have at least 15 hours of college credit.

Since the military offers hundreds of different career paths, it would be nearly to impossible to give you a concise answer. Assuming you already took the ASVAB and saved the printout of your line scores, you can use the following resources to determine what military occupational specialties you qualify for:

Air Force: https://www.military.com/join-armed-forces/asvab/asvab-and-air-force-jobs.html

Army: https://www.military.com/join-armed-forces/asvab/asvab-and-army-jobs.html

Marine Corps: https://www.military.com/join-armed-forces/asvab/asvab-and-marine-corps-jobs.html

Navy: https://www.military.com/join-armed-forces/asvab-and-navy-mos-jobs.html

In addition, your recruiter will give you more information about potential career paths. However, I strongly encourage you to spend some time researching different military careers before you take your physical at MEPs. In doing so, you will have an idea as to what you’re willing to do with the next four to six years of your life.

Ask a recruiter, a family member, a military veteran, or a smart friend!
