If you are interested in military enlistment, you will want to pay extra attention to the questions on the Paragraph Comprehension portion of the ASVAB. Scores from this section, along with the results of the Word Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning, and Mathematics Knowledge sections, will be used to calculate your Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) score. AFQT scores are expressed as percentile rankings, comparing your results to other servicemenís. Each branch of the military has different AFQT score requirements for enlistment. AFQT scores can also be a factor in your signing bonus. The higher your AFQT score, the more options you will have in your military career.
