What gets tested?

To score high on the ASVAB electronics information test, candidates must learn about three core themes that weave themselves through the exam.

Remember that during the electronics information exam, candidates are expected to have a basic understanding of equations that impact the principles of electricity.

Test Taking Tips!

To score high at the ASVAB electronics information exam, candidates must study in the weeks and months leading up to the exam – taking as many ASVAB test questions as possible.

  • Interpret electrical systems. At the very least, candidates must have a robust knowledge of electrical circuits and how those circuits operate. Key to this is knowledge of electrical symbols. You must take the time, preferably using flashcards, to commit all electrical symbols to memory.
  • Conductors and insulators. Put together a list of the most common substances that are conductors and that which are insulators. These are substances either widely conduct or widely resist electrical current. Though not a major part of the electronics information exam, they do get tested and this can be easy marks!
  • Know units and equations. Similarly, candidates should create flashcards that talk about scientific units and equations, such as Ohm’s law. You must be able to identify what these equations are used for and what units are used for each factor of that equation. Flashcards are the best way to prepare for units and equations.
  • Practice ASVAB test questions. Electronics information is one of those exams that focusses on the facts. Try to take as many ASVAB test practice questions as possible in the weeks leading up to the exam. Explained answers can also help plug any gaps in your existing knowledge base – turning weaknesses into strengths.
