  • As of January 2004, there are 2,611,532 personnel in the US military, across all branches.
  • The ASVAB is required for anyone entering the military, except academy students.
  • The exam can be taken for use as an aptitude test as well as for military entrance.
  • More than half the high schools in the US participate in the program.

 

The ASVAB Exam Cram provides a succinct review of the exam topics for candidates wishing to join any of the military services. Students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades and post-secondary schools are eligible to take the exam; though sophomores may take the exam, their scores are not eligible for enlistment purposes. They must retake the exam as a high school junior or senior. About half of all US high schools nationwide (14,000) participate in the program. The exam is given by the schools or by a recruiter. Students are provided with scores for each of the individual exams, of which there are now nine, plus three Career Exploration Score composites: Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science and Technical Skills. The composite scores are used to evaluate an individual's skill level and aptitude, and help determine a career focus. The exams take three hours to complete. There are approximately 4100 job positions for enlisted personnel and officers within 152 career fields.
