This book is necessary for anyone who plans to take the AFOQT. Doing the timed practice tests a couple of times through really helps you get a good feel for the pace of the real test. The first time I practiced I ran out of time on nearly every section. I practiced again with the other Arco book (which has harder questions in my opinion) and got a lot faster. Finally, I took the actual AFOQT, finishing almost every section early enough to check many of my answers. I ended up getting a 99 on the Pilot, Navigator, Academic Aptitude, and Verbal sections. Quantitative was a 96. There is no way I could've gotten those scores without using the Arco practice tests.

I was surprised that this book was "on it" when it came to the test questions that they ask you. I can't speak how well it is when it comes to the other branch tests, but it helped me prepare for the test giving me a passing score.

One draw back of the book as far as helicopter knowledge it really fails to cover the basics for someone knowing nothing about helicopters. I suggest getting a book that explains the basics for beginners.

Another thing to point out if you don't mind ebooks you can view this book for free on the army warrant officer website. The whole book is PDF format.

This is a good book for the AFOQT, I just took the test and it has it all. My advice is study hard and practice timing yourself. This book has all the subtests found on the AFOQT, study some math if your rusty. GOOD luck!

I took the ASTB earlier today and there were many issues with the book, even while I was still studying. I received a passing score, but this book did not help nearly as much as it was intended to. The test was changed as of November 2013 to be fully digital (this is due to high washout rates of personnel that have passed the written tests) and this poses another issue in this review.

Some of the problems are incorrect (math section) and I had to look them up online to make sure I was studying the correct formula. They would have one formula to use for the answer and plug in different numbers when they were actually working out the problem.

Very few questions involving:
General Science
Naming Parts of a Plane and their Functions
Nautical/Aviation Information/History
Synonyms
Table Reading
Verbal Analogies

Another issue is the fact that there are entire sections that were not actually on the test:
Artificial Horizon Dial (reading a planes bank, elevation, etc)
Block Counting
Cyclic Orientation (using pictures to determine if a plane is: banking, climbing, turning, etc)
Complex Movements (movement on an invisible grid)
Hidden Figures
Rotated Blocks
Spatial Apperception (where is the planes position in relation to its surroundings)

Much of the math that is in the book is not actually on the test. Very few of the questions that are posed in the book will be seen come test time, so I would recommend looking at more advanced math to broaden your scope. This is not a very good test tool to use solely, but a general review from what many have done in high school.

I took the AFOQT in Feb 2008, if you only buy one study guide, by Barron's. The ARCO does not reflect the current 12 section test, Barron's does. Also Barron's gives you 2 practice exams, ARCO only one. The ARCO book is fine if you want another practice exam, but you need only work on the sections that are included in Barron's.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had mixed expectations for this book based on the reviews I read here and other places about this book. I purchased this book and the Principles of Helicopter Flight book and used both to study. The practice test in this was a life saver! I scored a 143 out of a possible 176 on the AFAST and finished all sections of the test with time to spare. Do the practice test over and over and over and do it for time. I made flash cards for the complex movements section and that helped alot as well. Overall this was a great purchase and I would reccomend it to anyone taking the AFAST in the future.Do not use this as your only source of reference! Study on flight principles as well, because the questions are not straight out of the test. If you do not study, you will not even know what some of the questions are asking for!

Highly Reccomend!! AAA+

This book is the best source out there, but you will not pass the AFAST unless you study, study, study (and this includes picking up additional helicopter related books). The trickiest parts of the AFAST are the Helicopter Knowledge and Complex Movements sections. You should cut the complex movements questions out and make flashcards. As far as helicopter knowledge goes, it's a pretty broad spectrum. Know how the main and tail rotors work. Read Principles of Helicopter flight. Don't be afraid to take other tests in the book, this will help you. Know how boats move in the water, including how rudders and propulsion work. Study for at least a month prior to taking the AFAST. I got a 115. Good luck!
