ASTB Section and Layout:

The ASTB has a total of 7 sections. To qualify as an officer, you will need to complete the first 3 sections of ASTB which are known as OAR (Officer Aptitude Rate).

  1. Math Skills Test (MST): Basic arithmetic, algebra and geometry, requiring you to be knowledgeable in angles, perimeters, distances, and word problems.
  2. Mechanical Comprehension Test (MCT): Basic knowledge of physics and its relation to velocity, pressure, and volume, as well as mechanics of simple machines.
  3. Reading Comprehension Test (RCT): You will have to read a passage of text and answer multiple questions based on the details of the passage.
  4. Aviation and Nautical Information Test (ANIT): You will need to be knowledgeable in nautical terminology, aviation history, and principles of aviation.
  5. Naval Aviation Trait Facet Inventory (NATFI): A personality inventory that assesses the suitability for a career in aviation on basis of personal characteristics.
  6. Performance Based Measures Battery (PBM): You will be required to do a flight simulation.
  7. Biographical Inventory and Response Validation (BI-RV): No preparation is needed – you will be required to give honest answers. You will get questionnaires about your experience, achievements, and success in aviation.

    I bought several from amazon to study the ASTB exam. None of the book has everything you need to pass the test. I also realize that all the contents in the books are very old. If you want all the materials in one place, this is the best. It has ASTB prediction test. Surprisingly, my OAR score is 5 points off of the actual oar score. my score is OAR 59 with 5,6,8. Highly recommended.

    I am in the Naval Academy and I was recommended by another classmate to use this website to practice for my ASTB exam. I used it and killed the test.
