Greetings, Shmoopers! Welcome to the ASVAB, or the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery for short. We're charged up to be here with you. Thinking of a career in the military but don't know how to fly a fighter jet? We're got you covered. The ASVAB covers nine (yes, nine) topics to help determine if you qualify to enlist in the military and to help assign you to a job once you get in.

In this guide, you'll learn

  • about circuits and transistors and currents, oh my!
  • why there's nothing more fun than applied physics.
  • that there's no such thing as too many acronyms

And much more.
