Learn About the ASVAB
You will take either a computer-based or paper-based version of the ASVAB. If you're taking the ASVAB on a computer, you'll see 10 different subtests, but on the paper-based version there are only nine. The computer-based ASVAB has an auto subtest and a shop subtest, while the paper ASVAB has a subtest that covers both shop and auto information.

If you're testing at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS), you'll take the computer-based ASVAB. Military Entrance Test (MET) sites offer the paper-based version.
