The ASVAB is an aptitude test administered by the US Military. Diffrent branches of the military have a specific mimimum score you must have in order to allow you to join. The Coast Guard has the highest requirement while the Army the lowest.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB for short measures your aptitude, or understanding of the following areas: CO-Combat, EL-Electronics, FA-Field Artillery, CL-Clerical, GM-General Maintenance, GT-General Technical, MM-Mechanical Maintenance, OF-Operators and Food, SC-Surveillence and Communications, ST-Skilled Technical. It is very similar to standardized tests you take in school. If you are smart they may limit you to noncombatant jobs.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is the standard test that is taken before joining the armed forces. The score is based on four sub-tests and determines which jobs you are qualified for. Scores range from 0 to 99 and correspond to the percentage of people that you scored better than.

Four scores from the ASVAB form the AFQT, the basic score that indicates if you are minimally qualified or not. If you are, then the 8 scores in various combinations indicate the career paths you are qulified for. See McGraw-Hill's ASVAB for more detailed explanations.

ASVAB stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. It is a comprehensive test to identify your strengths, weaknesses and where you could best serve your country. For instance, you may want to be an electrical engineer, but the ASVAB may tell the recruiter you simply don't have the background skills.

The ASVAB score (or the Armed Services Qualification Test) just judges everything about you that might be needed in relation to the military. It is a very comprehensive exam that covers anything and everything. If you do well on it, you will probably do extremely well within the military, although a poor score is no indicator of failure.
