If you are planning a career with the United States Armed Services, then you will be required to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB. In this article, I will show you how you can save time as you are studying by listening to audio material rather than just studying out of a book.
If you are preparing for the military, that means you probably have a lot of things going on in your life. This could be anything from school to job, family and other responsibilities. You may find yourself not having enough time in your regular schedule to study for your exam. However, since the ASVAB score is very important as it determines your eligibility both for your branch and job of choice, it is in your best interest to score as high as you can.
So how do you study without a lot of time? The trick for increasing your study time is audio material. You can listen to audio while you are doing other things. This means that if perhaps you have an MP3 player or have the ability to play music on your smart phone, you can load up an ASVAB study guide or other ASVAB study material which I will discuss shortly and simply listen to it as you go about your daily life.
As you are working out on the gym preparing to meet your military physical fitness requirements, when you are running that mile and a half or three miles, whatever it is, you have the time to listen to a full training session. As you are doing your push-ups, as you are doing your sit-ups, you can again listen to ASVAB study material.
While you are commuting to and from work, while you are doing your chores or cleaning your apartment, these are all times that you can simply plug in a set of headphones and learn without really taking the time to learn.
So how do you get the ASVAB audio material? There are two options. One is to find some training material out there that is provided in MP3 or CD format and simply listen to that. However if that is not available, simply sit down one day with your ASVAB book and read the information that you need to know into your phone or into your MP3 recorder.
While this may be time-consuming, you only have to do this once and then as you listen to the material again and again, you are not taking the time to study and so you are essentially studying the same material three, five, maybe even ten times. But all it took was the one time to sit down and actually record the information.
