Preparing for the ASVAB

As you get ready to take the ASVAB test you will need to spend some time studying. Remember, the higher your ASVAB score, the more job options you have for your military career, including an array of special pay and bonuses.

What’s the best way to study for the ASVAB? Start by taking a practice test to set a base-line score and understand the portions of the test that might be extra challenging for you. Find a quiet place to study, gather the tools you need and set a study schedule for yourself. You can take ASVAB practice tests on Military.com and learn more about ASVAB study tips.
