General Science

Why General Science

The ASVAB General Science is potentially one of the most important sub-tests of the ASVAB. This test subject area is made to assess the general scientific aptitude of those who want to join the military.

From the Official ASVAB Test Site:

“Knowledge of physical and biological sciences”

Pretty straightforward I guess.

In this ASVAB sub-test, the test takers are required to complete the ASVAB questions regarding the general understanding about the different areas. These areas could include biology, chemistry, anatomy, and astronomy.

Which One Do I Study Then??

Because there are so many different areas covered by science, trying to figure out which one to study can be stressful. Don’t worry though!

ASVAB General Science

There are only 16 questions on the computer version of the ASVAB and on the paper version you would have 25 questions. This means that you shouldn’t have to study too much on any particular science area. If you do, you’ll just be wasting time.  The questions do not go too deep into any particular area either. That’s why it’s called General Science. When studying to prepare for the ASVAB General Science sub-test, just cover the basic info on each subject and you should be fine!
