This test measures an applicants strengths and weaknesses and is usually a good indicator of what type of career path in the military would suit your skills and interests so you enjoy your career.
This article is a helpful guideline to high school students as to where to take the ASVAB test so you can get started.
Typically, many high school students who are just exploring their options and possibly considering a military career will want to know more about the placement test before taking it.
But most don't know where to take the ASVAB and have no idea how to start.
Usually an armed forces recruiter will visit your school during an assembly and give a speech about joining the military and the benefits of being in the Armed Forces.
You can also find many brochures and pamphlets that they will leave in your guidance office at school that you can take home and discuss with your parents.
Usually, these recruiters are members of the military who's main job is to find and recruit people into the military and they work out of armed services recruiting stations that are located in your town.
If you're interested in exploring your military options you'll need to set up a meeting with a recruiter so that you two can discuss your options and she or he can determine that you are qualified to join the military.
(That you are physically capable, emotionally ready, etc, etc.
) Once you have talked to the recruiter and have been determined fit to join the military your recruiter will make an appointment for you at the closest Military Entrance Test Site (METS) or Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) to take the ASVAB.
Typically, the tests are given monthly in any given area and often are given at the closest military base near you.
If there isn't a base nearby they usually will use a local meeting area that has a enough space to hold all the applicants if necessary.
You also need to know that there are two versions of the test currently.
The first is the student version, which is basically the same test but can be administered at your local high school (which makes it allot easier) and the second is the standard test, which is given at the MEPS or METS.
