1,001 questions about the ASTB (post your scores & ask your questions here!)

It was my last try, studied for about a month but the test kept restarting/stalling due to an update. and ended up lower scores then second try.
Recruiter said to try but didn't give an indication to chances. It was also noted that I couldn't take it a fourth time although the test was bugged and caused scores to be lowered.
This happened to me too! The computer had to be shut down and restarted I kid you not at least 5 times during my test! My math drop down menu wasn't working, but the timer was still going while I went to get help and while she shut it down. It's not that the computer glitch makes you answer wrong, but it is difficult to stay focused for a long period of time. The computer glitches stretched out my test an extra hour. By the time I was finished I was exhausted ahaha. Needless to say I will be taking the ASTB again and my advice to anyone taking the test is if your experiencing technical difficulties- RESCHEDULE! Why risk under performing on one of only 3 possible attempts?

Just took mine today.

All you need for exam is here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1HCZO2Bih7DBUhaL3AhVc3omAxjF-hY1B?usp=sharing

ANIT: Ship parts, Plane parts, different axis and what they do, airport lights, navy flight deck jersey colors, naval history, people&plane history (ex. first person to break the sound barrier, first person in space etc...) Made this 500 questions quizlet. It's not perfect. But it helps. https://quizlet.com/579611045/astb-aviation-on-crack-flash-cards/

1-Super good trick that helped me get each one to 1 second
and practice UAV material: https://www.cram.com/flashcards/astb-uav-testing-6997985

2-Both joystick and throttle. Numbers and letters play in both ears and you have to either A: hit throttle, B:hit joystick if number playing in accurate ear is either even or odd

3- you only use buttons for numbers and follow both targets using throttle and joystick. Inverted axis. Use this link below to see

4&5-An awesome wizard made this right here for practice https://jantzenx.github.io/ASTB/ Use it, it is your best friend.

6- sections have changed. Just took it today.

7- they took that out

Hope that helped. Good luck
Thank you for the site! Question, what scores should I be hitting to know I'm improving? I know it says "target low scores" but what actual number do I need to target?

Hello all, just an update for all of you that have had problems with the APEX test administering system; My test was rescheduled at a later date because they are conducting maintenance on APEX from 27MAY-04JUN.

hey i have two questions

I went to take the OAR today and my recruiter just told me that the computer system is down nationwide till June 7th. Did this happen to anyone?

Also, my recruiter started to talk about how there is calculus and the test questions in the math section of the OAR are supposed to lead there. Is that true? I did not see any type of those problems in the study guides or review packets on the thread.

The OAR is Adaptive meaning each question gets Harder/easier depending upon if you get the previous answer right/wrong. it does lead to calculus questions

Thought I’d throw up the stats to see where I fall for SNA.

  • ASTB: 48 7/7/7 (first try)
  • GPA: 3.4
  • Degree: Economics and Finance (dual major)
  • References: AF Lt Col (ret) Pilot
AF Lt Col (ret) Pilot
Navy Lt Student Naval Aviator
  • Flight Instructor (Director of flight ops)
  • Current Job: Working for a defense company in their aerospace sector as a financial analyst
  • Currently have a PPL with around 90 logged hours.
  • No prior service.
With that being said, I know the OAR score is a bit low. I’ve heard a lot of back and forth how the OAR is the ticket into OCS. I’ve also heard that with straight 7’s it’s pretty 50/50 and can go both ways. Hoping my PPL, references, and current job give me a leg up.
When it came to studying, I’ll echo what everyone else has been saying... Kyle’s study guide. The math did catch me a little off guard since it did feel more difficult than the 114 practice questions.

Looking for some feedback!
Thanks in advance.

Quoting what @exNavyOffRec has said, the Main component the SNA/NFO board looks at is your ASTB score (7/7/7) with that said i was picked up with a 45 7/8/7 OAR/ASTB so you application is relatively competitive.

that is what i am told but did anyone see calculus based questions on the math section?
well...I forgot the formula for the volume of a cone, so I used calculus (solids of revolution integral) to derive it...but I would just learn the damn formula.....what I mean is...yes...you could probably use calculus in any of the problems to solve it, but it's not needed...at least in my experience...nobody was asking for derivatives, integrals, power series and what not
