ASVAB Study Advice?
dfrecore Wrote:Peterson's has a website that has many practice exams, the ASVAB being one of them. I have access to it for free through my local library system (San Diego County). Check your library system to see if it's available there. Also, ask a friend in the military, they have access to it as well through a DOD website. They may be able to help you get access.

+1 on this, exactly what I would do, I would add trying to find practice exams and just passing em too.

I'm pretty sure the poster that revived this thread is a bot. The post is an exact word for word copy paste of a sentence in the OP.

Don't waste time by trying to save time. The only sure way to complete your degree is to knock out credits quickly and efficiently.

Don't let easiness bite you in the rear. Know your endgame (where you want to be) and plan backward from there. Your education is a means to an end.

Be honest professionally, socially and academically. There are people (especially little ones) who look up to you and they're going by your example.

Be proud. Whether you're an Engineer or Fast Food worker, there is honor and dignity in hard work.

Picking on people weaker than you only proves that you are a weak person.
Someone at work just asked me how to pass the asvab. (I actually had to look here to see what everyone suggested). I took the asvab my senior year, didn't study for it at all and scored decent enough to go to the ARMY's LPN school. I don't remember it being very hard at all. Granted I was still in high school so that is probably why. My coworker is fluent in Turkish, Arabic etc and probably his language skills would be very wanted in the Army (he is a Christian refugee from Syria who wants to repay this country back by entering the armed services) but because of the conflict back home he wasn't able to finish his schooling and his math and English skills are not the best. He finally completed his GED. I figure the GED can't be that different from the asvab? Maybe even a bit easier? I think if he passed his GED, the Asvab might be similar or maybe even a bit easier? Has anyone here taken both? I took the asvab back in 93 so I am the wrong person to give him any advice. I saw above someone rec'd Peterson's website. THat is what I recommended to him. Or perhaps since he is fresh from taking and passing the GED he should just dive into the ASVAB?
