Guide Review - Barron's Pass Key to the ASVAB

Pass Key to the ASVAB is Barron's shorter version of How to Prepare for the ASVAB. The guide concentrates mainly on the four areas of the ASVAB (Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning, and Mathematics Knowledge) that are used in order to determine whether or not one is qualified to join the United States Military. The guide contains three tests just covering the four basic areas, and one full-length model ASVAB test with all the questions answered and explained. The guide also includes drill-and-review sections for all subject areas, plus tips on how to get a good score. It's a valuable resource for those who need to improve their vocabulary/reading and math skills in order to qualify for military service.
