The AFQT consists of four critical subtests of the ASVAB which count toward the AFQT (Armed Forces Qualifying Test) score. This score determines which U.S. service a test taker is eligible to enlist in. More than one million people per year participate in the ASVAB qualifying program.

  • Timed, boxed calendars for preparing to take the test—two-month study calendar, one-month study calendar, and one-week study calendar
  • Diagnostic test that helps test-takers pinpoint strengths and weaknesses so they can focus their review on topics in which they need the most help
  • Subject reviews that succinctly cover need-to-know topics on the test
  • Model practice test with answers and explanations
