Out of the four which ones really are the best to study the Asvab with?

Right now I'm thinking about these two sources.

ASVAB AFQT For Dummies ASVAB AFQT For Dummies: Rod Powers: 9781118775172: Amazon.com: Books

Asvaber.com Ultimate ASVAB Practice Center

I wanted to get the two below as well. However, do you think this is overkill. Would the top two be enough or should I go on ahead and get all four? I mean there is no such thing as studying to much is there?

McGraw-Hill's ASVAB, 3rd Edition: Strategies + 4 Practice Tests McGraw-Hill's ASVAB, 3rd Edition: Strategies + 4 Practice Tests: Dr. Janet Wall: 9780071809207: Amazon.com: Books

ASVAB For Dummies: Premier PLUS ASVAB For Dummies, Premier Plus (with Free Online Practice Tests): Rod Powers: 9781118525531: Amazon.com: Books

I'm horrible in math so I definitely want the study materials that will help with that the most.

Thanks

When my son was studying for the ASVAB, he went to our local library and checked out five different study guides for free. I remember he had the Dummies version, Kaplan, McGraw-Hill, Princeton Review - and one other. Save yourself some money, and check out what's available at your library.

If you paid attention in all of your classes in high school and have some practical workshop knowledge on the side, you should do fine. It doesn't hurt to brush up anyway since that higher score may open options for you.

Unless you are struggling in school, I don't understand why anyone would study for the ASVAB. I, and everyone I knew who enlisted, just walked into the recruiter's office and took the test. Maybe things have changed. If you think you need to study, then study. Are there practice tests on line that you can take? If nothing else, perhaps you will go in feeling more confident about yourself if you do use some study guides.

I think studying and being prepared is always a good thing. You will do practice questions and you will see how the test is laid out. You have a certain length of time so why spend it figuring out and getting familiar with? I think you'll be more confident and sure of yourself. Also, you can retake the ASVAB if you're not satisfied with your results so why not try hard on the front end?

Totally agree, the higher your score the better, more career choice. Nice post.

I will suggest a good book named ASVAB Study Guide 2018-2019 and it is totally worth reading. It is a great book for achieving the target score that includes a quick overview, test-taking strategies, introduction, general science, arithmetic reasoning, word Knowledge, math knowledge, electronics information, auto, and shop information, assembling objects, practice questions, detailed answer explanations and much more.

Henga, this post is from over 4 years ago. Chances are he's taken the ASVAB, enlisted, served and separated.

Never studied and did fine. Did your recruiter give you a 'pre-test?'

The ASVAB was introduced in 1968.
Over 40 million examinees have taken the ASVAB since then.

The Official ASVAB site, a good place to start: Official Site of the ASVAB Testing Program
