(from someone who can actually explain it)

Chris is a Stanford-educated tutor with over 10 years experience tutoring math to students of all abilities and levels, from pre-algebra and middle school all the way through college algebra, calculus and the SAT. In that time he got a lot of experience learning how to explain this stuff in a way it actually makes sense to normal people, and he brings that experience to his videos, whether you are in class now or preparing for ASVAB.

How to prep for ASVAB using -- The table below contains a list of all the topics you'll find on the ASVAB test. In the right-hand column of the table are links to all the videos on our site that you'll want to watch to cover those topics.


About the test: The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is used by the military in order to assign incoming service men and women to the appropriate job. It is also sometimes used by secondary schools to help students in career planning. ASVAB testing may be conducted at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS), a Military Entrance Test (MET) site or your high school. The ASVAB is administered by computer at all MEPS, and by paper and pencil at most MET and high school sites. There are ten sections on the ASVAB, two of which are math. The math sections are Arithmetic Reasoning (16 questions) and Mathematical Knowledge (16 questions). The prep materials on this site cover these two sections. There is a time limit for each section: 39 minutes for Arithmetic Reasoning and 20 minutes for Mathematical Knowledge.
Calculators: No calculators are allowed
How to Study: Start by testing yourself on some practice questions (link below). After you take the test, score yourself to see where your weaknesses are, and then use the table below to find the right videos you need to brush up on or re-learn each trouble area. (Of course, if you have plenty of time to study before the test, watch them all!) Once you've studied, retake the test to find out where you've made improvement and where you still need work. You can retake the practice test as often as needed, and the videos in the tables below are just to get you started; your membership gives you access to the whole site.
