BE ALL YOU CAN BE! THE FEW. THE PROUD. CROSS INTO THE BLUE! ACCELERATE YOUR LIFE!

The Armed Forces Qualifying Test, or AFQT, is not one test. It is actually a subset of the Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery, or ASVAB. The AFQT score is the primary score that gets you into the military. Each branch of the military has its own minimum AFQT score that determines your military fitness. This book will help you achieve the score you need, no matter whether it is for the Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard, or Marines!

SEMPER PARATUS (ALWAYS READY)

Much of what is on the AFQT is material you’ve already covered in your high school classes. We’ll give you the basics and reinforce those basics with drills, exercises, and a practice test that you’ll find at the end of the book. We designed this book with you in mind—the potential recruit who wants to enlist. What you’ll find ahead of you here is everything you need and nothing more. Once you get into the military, the scores on the other subsets of the ASVAB determine which jobs you may be well suited for. But remember, if you don’t meet a certain minimum score on the subtests that make up the AFQT (see above), you won’t even be able to enlist. We are here to help you.

A full-length ASVAB practice test is available online at www.rea.com/asvab.

THIS WE’LL DEFEND: HOW THIS BOOK IS ORGANIZED

Chapter 1: What Is the ASVAB AFQT?

This chapter provides you with everything you need to know about the ASVAB and the AFQT. There is information about the origins of the ASVAB and the test’s content. You’ll also find some test-taking strategies and scoring information.

Chapter 2: Word Knowledge

With this chapter, we begin the review and practice for which REA is noted. The Word Knowledge section of the test asks you to choose the correct definition of words. We present you with the vocabulary skills you need, including plenty of practice using those skills.

Chapter 3: Paragraph Comprehension

This chapter not only gives you the skills you need to do well, it also gives you the strategies you need to be a more active reader, no matter what you like to read.

Chapter 4: Mathematics Knowledge

This chapter covers the mathematical concepts that are included on the test. It also gives you a clear picture of the techniques needed to handle each question type effectively.

Chapter 5: Arithmetic Reasoning

Arithmetic reasoning is another way to say “word problems.” These word problems cover everyday situations while measuring your reasoning skills.

Chapter 6: What Job Do You Really Want?

This chapter provides a list of Military Occupation Specialties (MOS) that will give you an idea of some of the positions available in the Armed Services. There are lots of occupations and this is your chance to browse through your options and decide what interests you.

ABOVE ALL

You don’t have to read this book from cover to cover, but we hope that you will. Don’t let its small size fool you—we’ve designed it to be user-friendly and chock-full of useful information and practice to “be all it can be” just for you. Just remember that practice and preparation will get you where you want to go. REA is with you all the way.

We wish you luck on your journey.
