Here in this ASVAB electronics information guide, we learn more about the exam format; syllabus of questions; as well as the top tips you need to apply to score the highest possible result.
Remember that during the electronics information exam, candidates are expected to have a basic understanding of equations that impact the principles of electricity.
Candidates are expected to understand the science behind electricity. This means having a solid understanding of volts, amperes, Ohms, and coulombs. You should also know about watts and the kilowatt-hour and what these are used to measure in respect to the flow of current.
Many ASVAB test questions ask about circuits. Topics covered include the symbols of electrical devices; alternating and direct current; capacitors and inductors; transistors; wires; fuses; transducers; the various types of switches; diodes; amplifiers; and antennae.
Even though the electronics information test is not included in the AFQT score, you should still understand the principles that underscore electronics – including the various types of resistance, Ohm’s law, frequency, impedance, and the direction of electrical flow.
