I was just looking at my ERB, and I'm curious about how they figure out the scores. The ones I'm particularly curious about are the Combat and Field Artillery scores. Those two areas just so happened to be my highest scores, with 125 each. Does my scoring high in these two areas mean that I should have signed up in those areas? I was just wondering. My lowest score was Mechanics, with a 118.
Naw, it's all in how they scored certain parts of the test. If you want specifics i'd go see the education counselor. You know you could always retake the test...most people tend to score better on a retake and that could get you some promotion points.

If memory serves me (and it should) there was a break down of how all your line scores were, well, scored in the back of the ASVAB for Dummies. I don't know about the field artillery score, but I do believe the Combat score is determined from your Reasoning and Arthimetic. That though I am not exactly certain about, YMMV.
-KS, who scored a 78 on his ASVAB!

DA PAM 611-21 would of been good in 99 or 2000, but now the Army has consolidated a lot of the MOS's so don't know if that would be a good place to look at now. Try the 2 AUG 04 Army Times, it has a great break down of the new MOS codes, or try this address from PERSCOM if you can not get your paws on a Army Times.
