As part of your ASVAB science test prep, you must have a rounded knowledge of body systems. Body systems include systems such as the cardiovascular system, digestive system and nervous system. Here, we flesh out the fundamental facts about the digestive system you need to know.
Body systems are a fascinating part of the ASVAB exam.
After all, body systems are what become compromised during conflict, including war. Enlisted military personnel should, then, have a through knowledge of each part of the body – where it is, what it does, and how it’s impacted by either disease or injury.
Rather than seeing ASVAB biology as an irrelevance, think about it through this lens instead. The more relevance you attach to a topic, the more likely you are to focus more and study well. Relevance creates interest and interest produces results.
Below, we provide a brief sketch of digestive system – what is, what organs are included and how those body parts work, and – at some points – we review what happens with pathological processes, such as disease, take over.
