I am just worried on getting the 110GT score on the ASVAB. I feel like it may be difficult and I may not get it. I was wondering for all that have taken it already how hard it really is and if the 110 GT is hard to get. Thanks

I do not feel it was hard. Just study. Yes, you can study for the ASVAB. I got a book from BN, but I am also sure you can buy one from amazon.com as well.

GT score is only a part of ASVAB. Study and give it a try. You can retake it after some time if need be.

Realize that your GT score is made up of several of the test sections. Research what those sections are. Then focus on those sections as your primary focus when studying. The information is out there. Dedicate time to it.

IIRC GT is a pretty tough one to study for.

My point being to spend more time on Arithmetic Reasoning than, say, Electronics Knowledge. Prioritization is key.

Lindsey,

Check out Barnes and Noble, they have McGraw-Hills ASVAB test prep by Dr. Janet E. Wall and Arco Officer Candidate Tests. I assume you are going Army WOFT? I prepared for these until they changed the age requirement April 1, 2011 to 30 years old now. Good luck.

Raptor, not sure where you heard that but the age limit is that you need to begin flight training before your 33rd birthday. The memo from April stated you can't be older than 32.

There are online tests you can take or you can get the book. Either way if you're concerned about scoring high enough you should take the tests as they will only help you and you have nothing to lose but a little study time. If this is something you really want go for it and do whatever it takes.

The GT portion is comprised of 4 sections. Applied math (If train A leaves station.....) , Volcabulary, english comprehension/sentance structure, and numbers math (forget what this is actually called) The test (ASVAB) is now an adaptive test, meaning that it will give you harder/easier questions based off of what you've answered correctly. The math is usually what kills people. In order to score at least a 110 GT, you'll need to be comfortable with highschool level algebra (provided you score well in the other 3 subjects). Now because the Army is cutting back soo many people, you're going to want to stand out a lot more as a better choice. Getting a 120 on the GT score is more of a goal you should be shooting for. I just finished taking a class trying to raise my GT score. It currently sits at 102... also... study the hell out of the AFAST books... ARCO has a great one for like $15 on amazon... I'd give you mine, but I'm still deployed... PM me if you want to know more about the military side of it

when you took the test the first time did you study or just take it without studying?

I took it a year out of high school, and got a 128 GT. I had not seen some of the stuff before (raising buckets with pullies, for example....) but was able to reason my way through it.

As I recall, the math was "hard" not because the problems were actually difficult, but because the computers that the ASVAB was taken on were of horrible screen resolution and I guess some people had a hard time distinguishing between + and <the symbol for divide>. (I don't know if that was a local MEPS problem, or all around, and I assume they've been upgraded. It's been almost 10 years....but you never know.)

Study. Why wouldn't you? This is your future career on the line. Treat it as such.

Exactly!!

I was hungover from the night before when I took my GT score... but that was when the Army REALLY needed 74B's (computer nerds)

I studied with one of those guides and made a 95 with a GT score of 136.

http://www.military.com/ASVAB

Take a practice test prior to studying and see how you do, then study everything anyways. Like mentioned above the ARCO book has a solid ASVAB study guide in it. But the current edition is probably going to become useless in June. According to this - http://www.quad-a.or...ese_1211p12.pdf the Army is employing the SIFT to replace the AFAST. My 7th edition ARCO book has nothing on the SIFT (somebody correct me if I'm wrong), which is a new test.
