The modern United States Armed Services are the envy of the world. Its soldiers are arguably the best trained, best funded and best equipped soldiers on earth and perhaps in the history of the world. In addition the United States Armed Services is steeped in tradition and rich in history. Accordingly, any candidate for enlistment in the United States Armed Services should feel proud to be considered a candidate for such and august institution. This is true regardless of the branch of the United States Armed Services the candidate for enlistment seeks to join be it the United States Army, the United States Navy, the United States Marines Corps, the United States National Guard or the United States Coast Guards.
Before a candidate for admission in the United States Armed Services is accepted, however, he or she must sit for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB. The ASVAB is an exam that tests the candidate’s knowledge in ten distinct subject areas including science, math and English among others. The candidate’s performance on the exam will determine both their fitness for entrance into the United States Armed Services as well as which job within the United States Armed Services they are probably best suited to perform. Accordingly it is important for the candidate to properly prepare for the test prior to taking it. Many candidates prepare for the ASVAB by taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test.
By taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test the candidate for admission into the United States Armed Services will benefit in two primary ways. First, the candidate will become familiar with the ASVAB test format. Second, by taking the ASVAB practice test, the candidate will come to know the subject areas in which his or her knowledge base is lacking and therefore know what subject areas will require further study.
