ASVAB




Studying. Military.com recommends that "when you first begin studying, you should make a list of the areas you are good at and those which you could use improvement on. If you're not really sure, it would be a great idea to take a practice ASVAB Test (links). This will help you figure out what you're good and not-so-good at. For example, you might make a table like this:
Section
           Predict Your Current Skill Level            
Scale of 1 - 5:
1 = Low
5 = High              
Key Sections:
Arithmetic Reasoning (AR)
3
Mathematics Knowledge (MK)
2
Word Knowledge (WK)
4
Paragraph Comprehension (PC)
3
Extra Sections
General Science (GS)                               11
2
Auto & Shop Information (AS)                 11
4
Mechanical Comprehension (MC)            19
3
Electronics Information (EI)                        9
2

Focus on your Weaknesses
Focus on the four essential sections, those key to the AFQT score, first. From the example above, it seems that your verbal abilities are at least OK: you gave yourself a 4 on the Word Knowledge section and a 3 on the Paragraph Comprehension. However, your math skills could use some work - especially with Mathematics Knowledge, as you only have a skill level of 2. What does this tell you? It tells you that you'll have to work extra hard on the math sections!" (military.com)
