The Book is Effective

I just took the ASVAB last week. I scored an AFQT percentile score of 90. I'm currently going Air Force and the scores were: M 73 did not study for it at all, hardly gave any effort and still scored 73 A 91 my recruiter said that this part is always easy G 88 The book helps a great deal E 81 The book helps a great deal too except the electronics sub test So here are my recommendations concerning those going Air Force. Study this book if you need high scores in the AFQT, general, and electronics. I would supplement this book with the online tests on [...] and a specific book concerning electronics. Hardly any of the electronics material from the book was on the test, so you may have to buy a Electronics for Dummies. Take all 3 of the full tests on [...]. That's it! You will need nothing else except 7-8 hours sleep, a hardy breakfast, some coffee, and self confidence. Remember, you are being scored on how well you do against your competition. Most of the tests were only 16 questions and you will have ample time to answer. Just stay calm and be confident. Make sure to have a small snack, like an oatmeal bar, and use the restroom before going to take the test. It is a freakin' cake walk! Oh, and one more thing some of the military people there are rude. You think they would have some decent manners.

Better than the higher rated ARCO one

I was pleasantly surprised because I had begun studying from the ARCO textbook, and I noticed that the explanations for arithmetic problems were not always the easiest to understand. Dummies gave me a thorough explanation for each problem, and its vocab section seemed to have more difficult words, which prompted me to study up on that section. Vocab was the least of my concerns until I saw the words in the practice exams in THIS book as opposed to the ARCO one, and luckily, I saw some of the same words on the actual ASVAB. I didn't study the other portions of the textbook, such as autoshop, and electrical, because my focus was the General Technical score, but as far as arithmetic and verbal, this was very helpful.

Great study guide!!!

I studied my butt off with the help of this book. The practice tests in this book were actually harder than the real ASVAB! That helped me be even more prepared. I only missed 5 questions on the ASVAB! NO LIE! Study this book for about 3 weeks and take it seriously. You will see your scores improve!!!

Great Book helped me a lot.

Very intelligently organized, written and presented. Upped my Asvab score 32 points from the initial practice test. Was a great help. If any book will help ya about this topic it's this one

A Great ASVAB Resource!

I bought this book after visiting the author's extensive military web site on About.comASVAB for Dummies is Great! It's not just a collection of practice tests (although there are three complete practice tests included). The authors go into great detail with tips and techniques about improving your scores in any of the ASVAB areas, and even tell you which scores relate to which military jobs, so that you can concentrate on improving the test areas that are important to the military job you're interested in.Included is a complete list of military enlisted jobs, and the ASVAB scores required to qualify for those jobs.Just like any book in the "Dummies" series, it's written in a fun, humorous style that keeps your interest.I'm taking the ASVAB test in two weeks, and I feel much more prepared.
