Is the ASVAB Difficult or Simply A Common Sense Exam?

Is the ASVAB a difficult test, or is it simply based on common sense? This is a question often asked by high school students and high school graduates considering a career with the United States military. The answer is that the exam is really a little of both, and in this article I will help you understand the difference CISM exam .

If you are considering a military career with the United States Armed Services then you are probably aware of the long and tedious application process. In addition to background checks, medical qualifications, physical fitness requirements, and a mountain of paperwork, you will also be required to take an pass the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB for short.

If you have yet to familiarize yourself with the exam you may think the exam is really difficult and potentially not possible. If you ask around you will get mixed responses ranging from ‘The exam is a joke, you don’t even have to study’ to ‘The exam is so difficult, I failed twice’.

While the exam is not a ‘joke’ it is certainly not un-doable. After all there are thousands of recruits joining the military every year, how can so many take and pass an impossible exam? On the flipside you have many who fail the exam, some more than once.

Everyone comes from a different background and therefor it would be unfair to compare yourself to the person who either aced or failed the exam. Your best bet coming into the exam is to familiarize yourself with both the exam, and the tested topics. Once you understand what is expected of you, you can make a calculated decision of what is required of you prior to moving forward.
