What Is It
ASVAB Tutoring will help you to crack the ASVAB test.
The ASVAB is the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. It is required to take the ASVAB in order to enlist in the military. There are nine subsets: arithmetic reasoning (AR), mathematics knowledge (MK), word knowledge (WK), paragraph comprehension (PC), general science (GS), electronics information (EI), auto and shop information (AS), mechanical comprehension (MC), and assembling objects (AO). The first four subsets are used to determine your AFQT scores as a percentile from 1 to 99. A percentile indicates how many people you did as well as or better than. For example, scoring a 55 means you scored as well as or better than 55% of others in your group. The ASVAB compares like to like, so a 30 year old college graduate will not be competing with a 17 year old high school junior. While every branch is different in their requirements, it is safe to say scoring a 40 will meet the minimum entry requirements for your desired branch. These are considered “passing” but do not guarantee entry into any branch. Additionally, each subject area has a “line score” which is the composite score you received in that area. Each job has different line score requirements in order to qualify. How line scores are treated vary by branch, so it is best to speak with your recruiter to determine what scores you need to qualify for your desired jobs.
The ASVAB allows for an unlimited number of attempts, but retests have time limitations. For the first and second retests, an applicant must wait at least one month since the previous attempt. After the second retest (third overall attempt), an applicant must wait at least six months since the previous attempt. If the first or second retest was invalidated for administrative reasons such as a fire drill, that attempt does not count and the applicant many retest in one month. Calculators are not allowed on any portion of the test.
How Prep Helps
Because the ASVAB determines if someone can enter the military at all and which jobs they can apply to, it is imperative to study. An important thing to note is that minimum qualifying scores are usually not enough to be accepted for a certain job. Like college admissions, the military favors those with better test scores. The better an applicant’s score, the more likely they are to be accepted to their job of choice. Furthermore, ASVAB scores are used when determining what kind of financial bonus an applicant can receive upon enlistment. These bonuses can amount to thousands of dollars.
At Miles Smart Tutoring, we offer ASVAB preparation to help those applying to enlist achieve scores that will allow them to obtain their ideal job and maximum bonuses. These classes not only review concepts that will be tested on the exam but also impart test taking strategies to help students excel even when they don’t know the answer. These strategies and skills are extremely useful outside of the test and have tremendous carryover value into training schools offered by each branch, the SAT/ACT/MCAT/LSAT for veterans and service members hoping to take advantage of their GI Bill, aptitude tests used to filter candidates for job opportunities, and officer tests such as the OAR as one advances their military career.
Customization of Tutoring Courses
Since every student is unique, we tailor each tutoring class to the specific needs of each student. Some students may be advanced in mathematics but below average in English. Others may be excellent at math with a calculator but struggle to quickly solve problems by hand or mentally. In these cases, tutors would adjust the focus of each class to highlight those specific areas. Similarly, students may be great at math except for one or two concepts which they need reviewing.
Our ABVAS tutoring expert also offer group classes for ASVAB.
