Hello all!
...
I plan to have my package submitted for the December deadline and find out the results this upcoming January but any insight to my chances or what I could do to help my chances would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Mike

Finally, it is my turn to spread the love.

Just took the ASTB an hour ago, and I got a 60 8/8/8
I will be applying for SNA/NFO
26 years old, E-6 (AE1) with 5-year active duty.
BS in Electrical Technology (engineering), 3.86 GPA.

For the MST, it started out easy, then super hard. Mostly DRT, geometry, find the 6th and 7th test, and exponent questions. I can name a few on top of my head. 32^(3/5)...(8) If f(x)=6, what is x if f(x)=3(1/4)^x... x=-1/2... Sally drives 60mph for 40 mins on the first leg, 20mph for 30 minutes on the 2 the second leg. What did she drive for the 3rd leg if it was the 10 less than the average of the first hour of driving? A cube's volume is x, and each side is extended so its new volume is 2x. How much was each side extend? I pick 1.260 ish. I got kicked out around 32 minutes in.

For the RST, I'm pretty sure this brought my OAR down, but I do not care. Halfway through I start questioned my ability to read. LOL. Just used the process of elimination and cross off obvious incorrect answer.

For the MCT, it was a lot of Bernoulli effect theory. I had one MA of an inclined plane, pulley, and level. This section was the easiest.

NAFTI, I think they this is put here to fuck with you. Reading and answering 99 questions wears you out. Honestly, I feel like my score would have been the same if I just chose the top choice without reading.

ANIT, I had a couple of off the wall questions. What is the scale of the VFR section charts? 1:500,000. Know the TBF avenger (torpedo bomber), Air commander reports to super CAG (i think), A-24 dauntless (famous dive bomber), all the parts of boats, beam, orlop, and poop deck. How many gallons of fuel are in 80 lbs? (13.3). One of the questions was confusing. What is the tendency for air aircraft to return or move away from its original position? Answers were 1) positive dynamic stability, 2) positive static stability, 3) neutral static stability, 4) negative static stability.
PBM. Use the UAV notecards.
Emergency procedures go like this
FIRE- E knob down, I-knob down, clutch
ENGINE- E knob up, I-knob up, clutch
Propeller- Leave E-knob alone, I-knob up, clutch.
I absolutely hated the PBM. My proctor came in during the tracking and dichotic listening combo and was watching me... Pretty sure he was laughing.

Anyways, what I said is probably just a repeat of other posts. I hope this can help you more.
Here is a list of the top 10% scorers. Go back and make notes of what they said!!!!
