Unlock your potential in the United States Armed Forces with the highest ASVAB score.
The ASVAB, or Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, is a multiple-choice test used by the United States Armed Forces to determine qualification for enlistment in the U.S. military and to identify suitable job roles for candidates based on their skills and interests. The ASVAB is not just a single test but a battery of subtests covering various areas of knowledge and skill.

- General Science (GS): Assesses knowledge of life science, earth and space science, and physical science.
- Arithmetic Reasoning (AR): Measures the ability to solve basic arithmetic word problems.
- Paragraph Comprehension (PC): Assesses the ability to obtain information from written material.
- Mathematics Knowledge (MK): Measures knowledge of mathematical concepts and applications.
- Electronics Information (EI): Tests knowledge of electrical equipment and systems, circuits, and basic electronic principles.
- Auto and Shop Information (AS): Assesses knowledge of automotive maintenance and repair, and wood and metal shop practices. (This subtest is divided into two separate sections on the P&P-ASVAB: Auto Information (AI) and Shop Information (SI).)
- Mechanical Comprehension (MC): Measures understanding of mechanical principles and physics.
- Word Knowledge (WK): Tests vocabulary knowledge through the ability to understand the meaning of words through synonyms.
- Assembling Objects (AO): Tests spatial orientation and ability to determine how an object will look when its parts are put together. (This subtest is only part of the CAT-ASVAB, and Pocket Prep does not offer this section.)

Each of these subtests contributes to composite scores that are relevant to different military occupational specialties. The ASVAB does not have a single "passing" score. Instead, eligibility for enlistment is based on the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) score, which is computed using the scores from four of the ASVAB subtests: Arithmetic Reasoning, Math Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, and Word Knowledge. The minimum AFQT score required for enlistment varies depending on the branch of the military: Army 31, Marines 32, Navy 35, Air Force 36, Coast Guard 40.

These minimum scores are subject to change and can vary depending on the needs of the military and other factors. It's also important to note that higher scores can qualify individuals for more roles and specialties within the armed forces.
