When you are joining the United States Marine Corps, you will be taking the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). Your score on de ASVAB will determine if you are eligible to enlist and which occupational specialty you will be eligible for. The higher you will score the higher your chances are of getting in the specialty you want. By practicing with our ASVAB Preparation Package you’ll learn how to make the ASVAB and improve your score.

The ASVAB is a multiple choice test, administered by the US Military Entrance Processing Stations (also called MEPS), used to determine qualification for enlistment in the armed forces. The test measures developed abilities and helps to predict future academic and occupational success in the military. The ASVAB is either administered by computer (called CAT-ASVAB) or in paper-and-pencil form (called P&P-ASVAB). Roughly 70% of military applicants take the test via computer. The testing procedures will vary depending on the mode of administration.

What does the ASVAB measure

The ASVAB tests are designed to measure aptitudes in four domains, being verbal, math, science and technical, and spatial. The content of the ASVAB test is as follows:

  • General Science (GS) - Regards knowledge of physical and biological sciences (domain: science/technical)
  • Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) - Regards the ability to solve arithmetic word problems (domain: math)
  • Word Knowledge (WK) - Ability to select the correct meaning of a word presented in context and to identify the best synonym for a given word (domain: verbal)
  • Paragraph Comprehension (PC) - Ability to obtain information from written passages (domain: verbal)
  • Mathematics Knowledge (MK) - Knowledge of high school mathematics (domain: math)
