good asvab score?

I know "as long as you reach the minimum it is good" or whatever but, really, approximately what would be considered a (for real) good score? People always talk about scores that allow them to do try for any rate, but approximately what would that score be? (inquiring specifically about the navy)

    the asvab score is only used to determine if you can enlist or not enlist

    it has no bearing at all on what jobs you ,may or may not qualify for

    so there is no such thing as an asvab score that will qualify you for any job

    you could make a perfect asvab score and not qualify for some jobs

      What?  Asvab is the biggest factor in qualifying for various jobs.

    The Navy only needs people who can score at least a 65 AFQT.  With a GT line score of at least 110.  

    Any high school graduate should be able to walk in cold( no prep) and hit that.

    The Navy uses a rather complicated method of adding up subscores into a line score. Every rate has a minimum line score needed for that rate. Some rates only use two or three sections, some use more. Some rates you can qualify with different scores in certain areas (for example, there are two possible combinations of scores that will qualify you for Damage Control. There is only one combination of scores that will qualify you for Aviation Boatswain's Mate) So there isn't "a" good score -- it depends on the rate. Take a look at the breakdown given below:

    One of the Hardest Jobs in the Navy Is Nuclear ET. ASVAB Score 252

    Electronics Technician (Nuclear).

    The ASVAB test actually consists of several different subject areas or subtests, these subtests are: General Science (GS); Arithmetic Reasoning (AR); Word Knowledge (WK); Paragraph Comprehension (PC); Mathematics Knowledge (MK); Electronics Information (EI); Auto and Shop Information (AS); Mechanical Comprehension (MC); and Assembling Objects (AO).

    These are the Requirements for NUC ET.

    VE+AR+MK+MC+NAPT=290 and NAPT=55 or AR+MK+EI+GS+NAPT=290 and NAPT=55

    or AR+MK+EI+GS=252

    or VE+AR+MK+MC=252

    or AR+MK+EI+GS=252

    or VE+AR+MK+MC=252
