ASVAB pretest

I just took the ASVAB pretest and scored a 29.1. Do I need to practice for the actual test? Whats the passing score?

    I would recommend studying, you need an (AFQT) - Military Entrance score of 31 on the ASVAB to be eligible to enlist. The higher the score the more MOS that you will qualify for.

     

    Here are some helpful  links:

    I personally like the "ASVAB for dummies" book.

     

    Goodluck, any more ?'s just ask.

    Re: ASVAB pretest

    Hi Tasha90c, I got a 26 on a pretest I took at the recruiters station, so I got the ASVAB for dummies book--worth the investment. Nothing wrong with brushing up on math,

    arithmetic and Eng. comprehension skills which are critical on the AFQT/ASVAB. It has helped a bunch, and now it's all coming back to me now. As long as you commit

    yourself to study, you should be able to get a higher score on the real test and have more MOS options. Find a study plan that fits you. Good luck!

    The way the test is scored doesn't simply work with the formula of X out of Y. So, it would be superficial to project your score off of an inadequet scoring system. Your scores are not bad though, just keep studying and taking practice tests and you will do great. Good luck!

    ASVAB pretest

    The most important parts of the test are the main subjects, Arithmetic Reasoning, Math Knowledge, Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension. These test scores will combine to from the AFQT, this composite score is used to measure your eligibility for enlistment. A 31 AFQT is required. The Line scores will be measured by adding certain subtests and main tests together, these score will then be used to measure your eligibility for job selection. However, the bottom line is just study, and you won't have to worry about all the intricate details. Good Luck and just keep working at it. When you are ready you can go to a recruiters office and take a pre-ASVAB test on their system and that actually can project your possible score. Good Luck!
