Take the ASVAB Practice Test Again!

Hi there. It is me, Frank Lee the content creator for the Great Minds Learn Blog and I am writing again about why you should take the ASVAB practice test if you are planning on sitting for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery in the near future. The A. S. V. A. B. is an entrance test administered by the U. S. Armed Services to any candidate for enlistment. This applies to all candidates for enlistment in the U. S. Armed Services regardless of whether they plan to enlist in the U. S. Navy, the U. S. Marines Corps, the U. S. Air Force, the U. S. Army, the U. S. Coast Guard or the U. S. National Guard.


A career in the U. S. Armed Services can be an exciting and rewarding experience for any young person. For this it is important that the candidate for enlistment properly prepare themselves for the entrance exam. By taking a practice version of the A. S. V. A. B. the candidate for enlistment with both familiarize themselves with the test format as well as familiarize themselves with which of the ten distinct subject areas tested on the A. S. V. A. B. will require further study for mastery.

The A. S. V. A. B. itself consists of two parts. The first part consists of a written format. The second part consists of a multiple choice, standardized test format. Both parts test the same ten subject areas including:

  • General Science (GS) – 16 questions in 8 minutes
