If you want to enter the Coast Guard or the Air Force, you need a higher score than you would, for example, the army. You also need a higher score in a military aptitude test to qualify if you have a GED instead of a high school diploma.
Make sure you understand the minimum score required for entry to the branch you want. This will help you determine how much you need to study. If you want to get into the Coast Guard, you had better plan to spend much time studying for the AFQT.
