It's my second time to take the ASTB for the USMC PLC program. What is a good way to mentally prepare for the HOTUS throttle and joystick test? That was the ONLY thing I failed last time. Any advice is helpful.
Do you know where I can find a list of the actual emergency procedures? I remember someone from my OSO mentioning that it helps to memorize those.Not much you can do, it basically tests raw ability. Focus on doing the emergency procedures correctly and quickly, and concentrate on the 2D tracking. Otherwise I would focus on studying the other sections, you probably have a better change of improving your scores there.
I see you've already taken the test again anyways, but for others reading, they aren't legitimate. They're made up for the purpose of the test as far as I can tell. Your efforts are better and more efficiently directed elsewhere. You get time to memorize the EPs before you start the test in the practice section, so just do it there. It really isn't very hard at all and I think 'emergency procedures' actually makes it sound way more intimidating than necessary when we're talking about 'if X happens, twirl knob Y to full and twirl knob Z to full, then hit reset'. It was quite a bit easier than I had thought it would be tbh.Do you know where I can find a list of the actual emergency procedures?
