Read this and this

I'm not an officer, but I have a good idea of what you guys go through, and as a SNCO I get to see and try to positively mentor a lot of new 2Lts. You're going to see lots of literature regarding how to lead and how to "Air Force", but the best things you can internalize to be a good leader are 1) Take care of your people. Airmen aren't your buddies, and you don't need to coddle, but have understanding and common sense and know that things that happen in their lives are sometimes more important than things that happen at work 2) Use common sense. When you have to make a judgement on a situation, you should use the AFIs and go by them to the maximum extent possible. However, remember that AFIs are not people, and can't make judgements so you ultimately have to determine the right thing to do, which is often not black and white.

Good luck in COT!

Here's what Ive used so far:

Keep in mind those sources have practice tests and content geared towards the older Form-S exam which is no longer relevant. For example, rotated blocks and hidden figures sections no longer apply. Also, the table reading section uses really small tables. From what I gather the tables used on the actual test are much larger grids. The instrument comprehension pictures look like ink blot tests they're so poorly rendered. MOST of what is in those books will help regardless. But in order to get a better idea of what exactly is on the new Form-T test you should look at the study materials provided here:

Another tip, you'll find that if you study a lot you may run out of good practice materials and begin to remember answers to the content available. A huge help in that regard and also in brushing up on general math (which for me is the most difficult. Its been 7 years since college math) is the GRE exam prep guides. This one in particular covers what you should be comfortable with math wise and has practice questions that are extremely similar to what youll see in the practice tests and prep books:

Good luck!

I don't know of any websites, but you could always try to get a different study guide. Amazon, Half-price books, Barnes and Noble, etc.

This is the one I used, granted it was back in 2014:

It does a pretty good job of covering each section and has a couple practice tests as well.

Copying and pasting a guide I made for my friend:

Security +

How I got it:

First, get the objectives. They describe the test, and everything on it. Print this out and have it with you at all times when you’re studying:

Darrel Gibson’s Sec+ book (like $10 on kindle):

Another book that was good:

Lots of books through school library

Before each chapter, read the objectives covered in it. For each objective, watch the appropriate videos from this playlist. If the chapter talks about section 4.3 in the Security+ objectives, then make sure you atch those videos. It’s a guy named Professor Messer who will basically give you a primer on each topic. There are a lot of topics though, so there are two playlists you will have to look through. They are all labelled though, so it shouldn’t be hard to find.

Playlist 1:

Playlist 2:

After watching a video, mark off that section from your copy of the Sec+ objectives. Then read the chapter. By the time you’re done with the book, all of the objectives should all be marked off.

After you read the book, take the practice tests in the book. The actual Sec+ requires about 83%, so shoot for 90% to give yourself a good cushion.

After that, just start quizzing yourself as much as possible

Quizlet. Quizlet is your friend. Just type in Security+ in it.

Really just look for anything related to the Sec+

As I stated before I didn't really. There's not much you can do to prepare aside from just learning how the test is built and such. I used [this] (The Official DLAB Training Manual: Study Guide and Practice Test: The Best Tips and Tricks to Raising Your DLAB Score one but I honestly can't say how much it helped or not. As for would I choose my job, 100% have the best job in the Air Force. You leave Monterey with an Associates practically, extremely marketable in the civilian sector and show me another way that you'll be paid to learn a foreign language.

Sounds like she could benefit from this hilarious book.

u/imataquito · 1 pointr/AirForce

Maybe something like this for both the collar and lapel?

Haven't tried it, but looks like it might work. Ordering some now.

Currently looking to buy the following to study for my AFOQT:

This one

Maybe this one

Or this one

Which one do you all recommend?

u/thoreaupoe · 1 pointr/AirForce

Does anyone know what the most up to date AFOQT sections are?

There's a discrepancy between 2 sections. This highly useful post I saved and the Baseops website have rotated blocks and hidden figures as test sections, but no reading comprehension and situational judgement, while my AFOQT study guide dated from 2016 has the opposite configuration.

The easiest answer I can find to this is to just find another test guide with rotated blocks and hidden figures as test sections to cover all my bases, but I found this to be pretty odd.

Can anyone else who took the AFOQT in the last year confirm which section configuration is correct?

FWIW I'm taking the AFOQT in April.

u/cooperusaf · 1 pointr/AirForce

Used this before I took the DLAB last year. Believe they raised the minimum score to 110 but don't quote me on the exact number. If you're fluent in that many languages already though you'll be fine

Read this book and realize that your life isn't as bad as you think it is.

u/tman12ghostrider · 3 pointsr/AirForce

I used this book off of Amazon, and it helped me out a lot. Ended up making a 140.

u/Orlando1701 · 2 pointsr/AirForce

This isn't anything new, in fact there is an excellent book about how post WWII General officer ranks have been bloated at the expense of the people who actually do work.

u/CornFedCactus · 16 pointsr/AirForce

Having both nonned and non-nonned, this is the only right write answer.

u/StockPhotosGuy · 2 pointsr/AirForce

There are no-rank OCP tabs so I’m gonna guess it’s up to your command.

I would follow up with your recruiter, there should not be that much hang time.

I studied using 2 books and a lot of random YouTube videos.


    I'm at the end of the process. My package is submitted and now all that's left is to hear back a yes or a no.

    There's a lot more than just a test and then a board. You are building a package. The package consists of:
  3. AFOQT Scores
  4. TBAS Scores (ABM/CSO/PCSM)
  5. 3-5 Letters of rec
  6. Officer interview and grading
  7. A large PDF application with your work and leadership experience, achievements, education, that sort of stuff, and then your personal statement.

    Generally it goes something like this: AFOQT -> 1 month later -> TBAS -> 1 or 2 months later -> MEPS for initial screening (since you want to be a pilot) -> 1-2 weeks before board cutoff -> Commander interview.

    Having no flying hours won't necessarily hurt you, but it doesn't help. Even just a few discovery flights will do wonders for your PCSM score.

I found this but didn’t want to wast money without asking. Lol

Simply radiation, it does horrific things to anyone who survives beyond the initial blast.

This book is haunting and can explain it better than I ever could:

u/The_seph_i_am · 28 pointsr/AirForce

Is where we started once we realized we were serious. Chaplin does pre-martial counciling, some Chaplin’s even require it if you’re considering getting married on base.

Marry up. So up infact if she joined she’d out rank you in no time. So up that she’d be an officer by the time you put on tech and had two kids, if she wanted. And if she’s not, never let her think she isn’t capable of it.

Accept that marriage is a marriage of families. Also, crazy breeds crazy.

Never be unwilling to make at least a meal a day, help the kids when she needs a break, and clean up that meal. (You may not get a chance later)

Also, it helps if you marry a military brat that knows exactly what their getting into, and your first duty station is Hawaii for 6 years... but it’s totally the book and the marry up thing.


u/8iiwii8 · 11 pointsr/AirForce

Hahaha.... Yes. Yes people have felt this way before. I am not laughing because your question is funny - I'm laughing because those in the profession of arms, self included, have been feeling this way since the cradle of civilization in the war after the first war.

I'mma step on my soap box for a bit:

Speaking as a guy who has been in for awhile and been to the places that you've mentioned - anybody worth their salt has had those same feelings about the conflict(s) before them. I imagine most pilots over Iraq would have preferred to have been dropping bombs over the shit instead. Pilots from the 'Nam era talk about the glory days over MiG alley, and pilots over Korea will tell tales of victories and lost friends over Europe. Every Marine everywhere will always drive an extra mile for Chesty. In Korea the Glorious Glosters were literally wiped out while holding on to the greatness bestowed upon the badges of their regiment... earned 150 years earlier in Egypt against Napoleon's forces. The old soldiers storming Normandy hoped to honor those lost at Meuse-Argonne, and I could keep going on and on and on.

And now, speaking as a guy on the internet with no authority over you, I'm giving you homework. Amazon links are attached, but check your local library. Read about a soldier who was furious that he joined too late after WWII. Read about a small generation of men who was told the war was over, and that there was no need to train hard during peace. Read about some Air Force nonners who were promised protection on a lonely mountain top... in a country they weren't supposed to be in. Read about the fictional - yet all too true lesson that war is hardly ever over and that things never change.

I don't have a non-douchy, yet motivational way to say this... so hear goes: Your job, whether we are actively involved in a major conflict or not - is to prepare to go war. Your time may come, and when it does, it's best to be as prepared as possible.

And if it doesn't... well... at least you got a baller GI Bill and some tendies.
