If you’re planning on joining the military after high school graduation, you should plan to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). The test is a measure of your knowledge and ability. Each branch of the military has a different cut score requirement from the ASVAB, and the test results can determine the types of opportunities available to you in the military.  Find out when and where the test will be offered and to start preparing now.
