This easy-to-read test prep guide helps prospective military aviators for all U.S. armed forces score their best on their service's flight aptitude test. Officer candidates, ROTC cadets, and currently enlisted personnel looking to move up or trying to qualify for pilot status will find that this book gives them all they need to achieve their highest score. A total of six full-length practice tests include answers and explanations for all questions. Test overviews and detailed review sections give readers the edge they need to rise to the top of the candidates' list. The manual presents two practice Air Force Officer Qualifying Tests (AFOQTs), two practice Army Flight Aptitude Selection Tests (AFASTs), and two practice Navy/Marine Corps/Coast Guard Aviation Selection Test Batteries (ASTBs). Written by a veteran military officer and instructor, this book's review sections cover language comprehension, math, mechanical comprehension, aviation and nautical technical information, general science, and specific mental skills such as block counting, finding hidden figures, and spatial apperception. The author also coaches readers on effective study techniques, provides information resources, and gives pilot candidates a thorough preview of how each test is structured.

There are many grievous wrong answers in this book. Throughout the AFAST practice test there are many misprints and outright wrong answers, especially in the cyclic orientation test. Do not buy this book it is a waste of time.
The information was clear and concise, and I read the book cover to cover. I would have done well on the ASTB today...if the format for the ASTB did not change last month. Now the study guides are obsolete, because all my preparation did not prepare me for the real exam. My advice? Get a physics book and study from there.
Army AFAST no longer exists
I don't know what book the other guy was reviewing, but I found this one very helpful, up-to-date, and technically accurate. Yes, there are a few typos, but they are neither numerous nor serious (and the publisher tells me those have been fixed in subsequent printings, anyway). This is much better than ARCO and the other versions out there! Recommend this book highly!!!
