I bought this book to help me study for the ASVAB.

I wanted to study this time and get a better score, and i saw this book primarily focused on the 4 subsections that create your AFQT Score and GT Score for my job.

Asvab for Dummies is a very useful book as it has helped my daughters and I acquire plenty of knowledge in Math and English.

The math explanations in this book are very elaborate and easy to understand. I honestly think I learned more from this book than I did from my math teachers while in school. Thus, if you want to learn math, reading, and word knowledge this is the book.

Before I purchased this book I would have liked to know that not all the 9 sub test of the asvab are included, theres only the four most important ones for you to qualify and be able to join a military branch. However, the other 5 sub test are necessary for you to open your doors to more job positions.

I bought this along with kaplan 2011 and Asvab flash cards, and this by far helped the most. the Asvab flashcards i got robbed cause nothing on those were on the test, and the Kaplan book is way harder than the actual test and that messed me up. Get this book. its the best investment you can make. I thought this book was the least of my favorite. until i took the test, and i realized when i was taking the test that this book was actually legit, and most of the math questions come straight from this book. The other books did not. I'm just giving you guys the 411. i ended up getting a 51 which is okay. but before that i got a 28. so this book helped alot.

This book is well worth the money! I have been out of High School for 7 years and was worried about taking the ASVAB. I took online practice tests but this didn't help me study much. I ordered this book and was pleasantly surprised by all the good information. The practice tests were a great help also! I looked over this book for about 2 weeks and scored an 80 on my ASVAB. There are a few mistakes throughout the book but nothing that should cause problems. I would tell anyone who asks to use this book when studying for the ASVAB.

My son was determined to join the United States Navy and he used this guide to pass his test. It really works. He was sworn in last month and awaits basic training. The guide contributed to his success. It worked!

Buyer beware! although this book does have general review of the things that will be on the asvab, the tests that are included at the end of the book are EXACTLY the same as you get for FREE on Military.com. If you have Internet access (and I think you do, since you are reading this on-line review) you can save yourself the $ and take the online practice tests, then go and do some look ups for lessons on the math skills. Also, other books have lists of vocabulary words for you to study, which this one does not have.
good luck soldier!
