The ASVAB exams have questions in the following categories:
- General Science - including life science, physical science, and earth and space science.
- Arithmetic Reasoning - including operations with whole numbers, operations with fractions and decimals, ratios and proportions, interest and percentage and measurement of perimeters, areas and volumes.
- Word Knowledge - definitions of words both with and without context.
- Paragraph comprehension - tests literal comprehension and implicity, inferential or critical comprehension.
- Mathematics Knowledge - including number theory, algebraic operations and equations, geometry and measurement, probability and numeration
- Electronics Information - including electrical tools, symbols, devices, and materials.
- Auto Information and Shop Information - including automotive components, systems and tools, shop tools, building materials, and building and construction procedures.
- Mechanical Comprehension - including basic compound and simple machines
- Assembling Objects - determining how objects will appear when parts are put together.
Candidates taking the ASVAB are given a AFQT (Armed Forces Qualifying Test) score which is simply a combination of your scores from four tests (Arithmetic Reasoning, Mathematics Knowledge, Word Knowledge, and Paragraph Comprehension). This AFQT score is represented as a percentile (from 1-99) which depicts how well you scored compared to other test takers. The AFQT score is used to determine whether you are qualified to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces. The scores from the other tests are used to determine what type of specialty you might be best suited for.
The ASVAB test can be taken at your school or a MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Stations) or MET (Mobile Examination Test) sites. When the ASVAB is administered at your school, it is usually part of the Student Testing Program or Career Exploration Program. When the ASVAB is given at MEPS or MET sites, it is part of the Enlistment Testing Program. The ASVAB test content is the same no matter where you take it, except that you will not have to take the Assembling Objects test if you take the test at your school (as part of the Student Testing Program). When you take the test in the Student Testing Program you will receive three composite scores (Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science and Technical Skills). When you take the ASVAB as part of the Enlistment Testing Program, you will receive an AFQT (Armed Forces Qualification Test) score and Service composite scores. These scores are used for assigning your military job.
The ASVAB is one of the most widely used aptitude tests in the world. The intent of the ASVAB test battery is to assess a candidate's potential for future success in the U.S. Military. Because of the nature of the test, the ASVAB can also be used to give a candidate valuable information about both military and civilian career choices that they may be suited for.
