I know how important it is to find a "good review" especially for a book that could help shape your military career, which is precisely why I decided to take the time to write about my CAT-ASVAB experience after reading two study books, taking numerous practice exams, and then re-reading the study books all over again.

First, some of you might be wondering what score I made (I know I would be too). I got a 95%, qualifying me for virtually every program in the military. My best sections were Mathematics Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Electronics Information, and tied for fourth were General Science, Arithmetic Reasoning, Mechanical Comprehension, Assembling Objects, and Word Knowledge. In all of these sections I scored higher than 60. Now that we've established my credibility for this particular subject, let us move on to the review of the study material(s) themselves, and to what extent they helped in preparing me for the exam.

The two books I read were "Master The ASVAB: by Scott A Ostrow, Therese DeAngelis" and "McGraw-Hill's ASVAB, Second Edition" (book titles should always be underlined, but not sure how to do that at the moment). My favorite of the two was "Master the ASVAB: by Scott A Ostrow" because I felt the practice exams were more difficult especially since they are timed. The practice exams for McGraw-Hill's ASVAB were pretty good too, but they just didn't quite feel like the real thing since the tests were not timed. Both books were comprehensive, sparing no expense in covering everything that could (emphasis added) show up on the ASVAB. I'm going to re-emphasize the word "could" because it is likely that 90% of the material won't.

I thought this book did a pretty good job of preparing me. To be honest, I mostly used it to learn more about Electronics, Auto/Shop, and Mechanical Comprehension. I've always been very good at English, so I can't say it really helped me improve there. The book did help me review some math concepts I had forgotten, too.

Some people are complaining that the questions in the book didn't show up on the test. I just took the ASVAB a month ago and I felt like this book had a very good idea of the kind of questions that would be on the test. The subject review sections are very helpful. I studied by taking the first diagnostic practice exam. I read through all the explanations of the questions, took notes, and then read the subject reviews for any areas I was weak on. I took the second exam in full and reviewed all the question explanations. After that, I only did exam sections for subjects I was weak on, again paying attention to the explanations. In all, I probably spent about 6-8 hours studying with this book and nothing else. I scored a 99 and all my line scores were above 140. I couldn't have done it without this prep book.

If you're worried, get this book, study, and don't sweat it test day because you'll do fine.

This book is a great study guide to prepare for the ASVAB. After going through the book and taking the pretests, I felt a lot more prepared and got a 92. I am not intending to brag but I have not had a math class in 5 years and this helped me review important areas that I would have done poorly without review. Get the book and give yourself plenty of time to prepare.

I followed the directions in the book as much as I could with the time I had. Scored 90 on AFQT and high marks in all areas; enough to qualify for every job in the military. My scores a few years ago without it are not worth mentioning because they were so bad. Thanks to this book I am eligible for some exciting things!

Like many others who have had the great "pleasure" of taking the ASVAB ill-prepared in high school, resulting in a relatively low score, I was recommended to purchase a study guide. After leafing through a few pages of this guide, I came to the conclusion that this would be the best guide for those of us who don't have the additional time to work through a "step-by-step" program that many of the competitors provide. "Master the ASVAB" is chocked full of practice test material. It carefully outlines how the test is administrated, and how these practice tests, if taken under similar testing constraints as the real ASVAB, does a great job in preparing you for the real test. I found that many of the questions provided in this guide were also listed in the real ASVAB (can't beat that!) This guides only downfall is its lack of math and word knowledge preparation. I found that many of the math knowledge questions provided in both this guides practice tests and the real asvab were not properly explained in this guide, if at all. Furthermore, I found that this guides method of educating its reader with word knowledge brief and a little uninformative (something similar to the "flash-card" system provided in the text would be nice.) However, where this book is lacking in those two fields it significantly makes up for in the mechanical and engineering sections. With plenty of detailed diagrams and thorough explanations, this guide can seemingly turn any reader into an apprentice mechanic or engineer. All in all, I am well pleased with my purchase. Scoring a 90 on the ASVAB has significantly improved my chances in gaining my preferred military career.

4 1/2 stars.
