ARCO makes study guides for tests like the ASVAB, GRE, Air Traffic Control, etc. Check out the reference section in your bookstore.

Seems everyone makes them now:

Take as many practice tests as you can and review your answers of the questions you missed. Good luck Try to get a good night’s sleep before you test it will help.

I scored mid 40's on practice then scored 73 on the real one. I would get some extra math and english practice it wasn't crazy hard but I had been out of school for a few yrs so i was rusty. been in for 3 1/2 yrs now and really enjoy it. Just take your time and don't go back and change any answers unless your 300% you were wrong the first time.

Focus on the English, reading comprehension, and math sections. That's where the bulk of your score comes from. Do well on those and you will have a high score.

Reading comprehension is an acquired skill it come from reading books. If you haven't read one lately it may delay your speed, so read a book it will help.
Next SeaBees are experiencing some dark day right now with limited to no advancement on the last to cycles (advancement twice yearly). You may escape downsizing and get right through with no problems if we are in the tail end of the down sizing.
40-50's asvab will put you in a few Seabee jobs if there is an opening.

Good luck

I prefer the "Twang" method when deciding a multiple choice answer when you are not sure.

The process is very simple and is way better than guessing.

1. Hold up your pointer and middle fingers on you right hand.

2. Smack them hard on the desk.

3. Determine which hurts more. Pointer finger is "A or B". Middle finger is "C or D".

4. Smack them again and see which one hurts more. There you will find your answer.


If you are unsure of too many questions and you can no longer feel your fingers, use the second hand on the clock. Between 12 and 3 the answer is "A". Between 3 and 6 it is "B", and so on.

Good luck and report back.

Words like succinct (I would not know unless I have a dictionary)? Compared to immobile (most people know). Thanks for reading this and any suggestions will be appreciated. I'm first looking into the MA rating if not a CB rating.
Put it off for two weeks, and do practice tests for the entire two weeks. You'll do MUCH better.

I took it in Sac a couple months ago at MEPS.

Scored very will with a 95 AFQT and 129 GT, predicted at 75 AFQT.

Honestly, the best advice I can give, study what you dont know right before the test so it is fresh in your mind.
Obviously this is not the best way to learn something, but it works to keep it fresh in your head. That's what I did with all the geometry formulas that I hadn't looked at since I was 15.

That and use process of elimination. On math problems, if you can do the math at least somewhat correctly, knock out a couple of the obvious wrong ones, then fine tune it until you get to the right answer.

I finished most of the test fairly quickly, just take it one question at a time and give it your best shot.

MA's do seem to be advancing right now. I deployed over here with a bunch of MA3's and now they're all MA2's.
If you wanted to be a real cool guy though, you would be a Hospital Corpsman

But anyway just make sure you get a good nights sleep before and a healthy breakfast, and don't stress over it. Good Luck.

Been too long since I took it, but I remember being there pretty much all day long. It was not a fun time. The higher your overall score, the more jobs that you will qualify for. Be careful after the results come back because the recruiter will try and put you in the highest level job that he can get you in rather then what you truly want. If your score is very high, he will push you into the more advanced ratings such as electronics, fire control, etc. He may not even show you other ratings that you are qualified for because the push is for the more advanced stuff. And don't just pick a rating based on what the current advancement is like. It can change fast, and what might be advancing fast right now can come to a screeching halt the next cycle. I've seen it happen many times.

If you ever need any advice on different jobs they might offer and don't truly understand what they are talking about, send me a PM and I'll help you out. I'm counting down days until my retirement as a Chief Electronics Tech and have twenty years experience in a lot of different areas of the NAVY. I've been on ships, overseas, air station, and now work with EOD.

Go to http://march2success.com and study. Stay relaxed. Don't worry about your score.

GT score is probably most important. Score over 110 and you are pretty much golden for any job, especially MI.

Yeah I wish my recruiter would have told me that. Instead I decided to go for the "you get to blow stuff up every day" job, combat engineer. Yeah, you dont get to blow stuff up every day.

May have changed recently... been out a few years... but MA's sea/shore rotation was the worst of all rates. 2 years shore to 6 years sea.

Good Luck.

Like oters said practice Math. Work on fractions, decimals, and percentages because that is the majority of questions. changing fractions to decimal. And get a study guide from barnes and nobles. Those things works

Good luck. Don't sweat it too much, the ASVAB is super easy. I took it cold and had an AFQT of 95.

Get a book! I didn't went I took it over 20 years ago (did 20) but things are so much different now and it is so important. I had decent scores and good great jobs but it was interesting to meet some people that wanted to change jobs and couldn't because of their old scores. Heard from training that after a couple of years you could retake the test and get old scores thrown out but don't know process.

What type of job do you want? I know for a fact that the military is taking kids scoring 30...the asvab is just a formality now...
