    This story reminded me of how I finally passed the ASVAB after failing it twice.

    What really helped me was to do lots of online practice, learn to eliminate wrong answers, and get comfortable with the time limits.

    Before I learned how to pass the ASVAB, I wasted a lot of time looking for free sample questions and study materials that didn't help me at all.

    The secret is to use the right materials and practice under the same pressure as in the real test.

    The website that helped me the most to pass the ASVAB is this one:
