Guide Review - Arco's ASVAB Basics

This is probably the best overall guide for those who need intensive help with their math and reading/vocabulary skills (the major portion of the ASVAB which determines whether or not one is qualified to join the military). If you failed the ASVAB the first time, or know you are weak in these areas, this guide can help you dramatically improve your these skills. Author Ronald Kappraff teaches high school science and mathematics in New York City, and does a great job in explaining the "how" to arrive at a correct answer, as well as the "what." The guide goes way beyond simple practice tests, actually teaching the skills needed to perform well on the overall ASVAB test.
