Answering Questions About the ASVAB

armed-forces-logoThe Home AUVI blog is constantly receiving requests from many of our loyal readers to provide information regarding the ASVAB test. Accordingly, in this blog post we will take the time to finally provide information on this important subject. First of all, the acronym ASVAB stands for the “Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery.” This is a test administered by the U. S. Armed services to all candidates for enlistment in any branch of the U. S. Armed Services including the U. S. Army, the U. S. Navy, the U. S. Marines Corps, the U. S. Air Force, the U. S. Coast Guard and the U. S. National Guard.

Because a career in the U. S. Armed Services can be an exciting and rewarding life experience it is very important to perform well on the ASVAB. Accordingly, it is very important for the candidate for enlistment in the U. S. Armed Services to properly prepare beforehand. Many people who have performed successfully on the ASVAB report preparing for the test by taking multiple versions of the ASVAB practice test. By taking a practice version of the ASVAB, the candidate for enlistment will become familiarized with the test format as well as learn which of the ten subject areas covered by the ASVAB will require additional focus in order to optimize performance on the day of the test.

Like the ASVAB test itself, the ASVAB practice test covers the same ten distinct subject areas. These subject areas include (1) General Science (GS), (2) Arithmetic Reasoning (AR),
(3) Word Knowledge (WK), (4) Paragraph Comprehension (PC), (5) Mathematics Knowledge (MK), (6) Electronics Information (EI), (7) Auto & Shop Information (AS), and (8) Mechanical Comprehension (MC). The test itself is comprised of two sections. The first section of the ASVAB is a standardized multiple choice exam. The second section of the ASVAB is a written format.

Musing While Walking Along a Gurgling Stream

streamAs the days grow darker and colder I find my mind turning inward. I go for walks amidst the cold wind and the falling leaves. I look up and see the branches bare and stark against the pale blue sky. With my hands in my pockets and my chin pressed into my breast my philosophical view of the world is stoic. There is a small stream running along the path I typically find myself walking. On a normal day I can hear the water churn and gurgle through the rocks and sticks in the channel. The water keeps pushing its way through day after day. Eventually it inflicts enough water damage Utah to break up the sticks and push them aside. I observe its progress daily when I walk past.

Sometimes I think about how long this water will continue to flow. I ask myself if there will ever be a day when the water stops flowing along its path. I am sure when that day arrives I will no longer be walking this route. There will be many days in between that day and today. There will be much water damage Utah inflicted upon the sticks and rocks in the stream. The stream itself might even change course between then and now.

Of course if I think along these lines for an extended period of time my thoughts eventually begin to ask me what its all about and whether there is any meaning to it all. From my daily perspective this stream seems eternal. It was there yesterday, the water flows today and I have no doubt that it will be flowing tomorrow. But someday it will stop flowing and so will I. The day after, I do not know if I will have any sense of myself or if the lights will be turned out for good.

The holidays are approaching and you are going to want to hire a maid service Salt Lake City to get your home in the shape it needs to be in to entertain.
