  1. 2018 Active Duty UFT Board

    This is incorrect. I took my TBAS about a month before I took my AFOQT. The downside to this was that a PCSM score wouldn't generate until I had taken the AFOQT.
  2. Upcoming Boards

    Yes. Last Tuesday I think it was.
  3. Well this answer is a bit extreme.
  4. Good military/aviation books

    Combat Ready by Capt Taylor Fox was an awesome book with a great look into UPT, IFF, and B-Course. I highly recommend.
  5. TBAS Information

    I ended up retaking the TBAS on Saturday and raising my PCSM from 77 to 83 and my 201+ column from 96 to 98. The main reason I decided to retake was to present and "all in" approach to the board. I'm 27 so I want to make sure I turn over every stone as I only have a couple years left to apply. I appreciate your advice TK1313.
  6. TBAS Information

    So after weighing my options, I ended up retaking the TBAS on Saturday and raised my PCSM from 77 to 83 while my flight hours bracket of 21-40 did not change. My max PCSM at 201+ hours would be 98. You were right Heavy, the scale is definitely not linear. I appreciate your advice.
  7. Chances for ANG UPT

    I second all of this. My Barron's study book was published in 2014 so it was not updated for Form T, however, the types of questions for the Math Knowledge section seemed to be the same. For me, the MK section was where I spent the majority of my time studying as I wanted a refresher on several concepts I hadn't done since college or even high school (dividing exponents, volume and area of various shapes, square root stuff, long division, etc...). As for the Table Reading (40 questions) and Instrument Comprehension (25 questions I think) sections, there is no reason why you shouldn't get 100% of these questions right. It really comes down to speed. With the IC section, either you know it or you don't. There's really no calculation you can do. For the TR section I probably timed myself doing the table reading section 5 or 6 times with the actual chart that you will use on the test. I found that I got quicker each time. Honestly, filling in the stupid bubbles on the answer sheet probably took longer than actually finding the number. Work quick. I felt that these two sections were like free points. Make sure to take advantage. The Aviation Information section was pretty straightforward. 8 minutes (I think) to answer 20 questions. Again, either you know the answer or you don't. You should have plenty of time to finish this section. Let me know if you want me to expand on anything further. Pilot: 98 Nav: 93 AA: 72 Verbal: 65 Quant: 72
  8. Chances for ANG UPT

    Nice work dude. I've heard of several people get hired at guard units with a lower PCSM so I wouldn't stress about it. Emphasize the whole person concept and you should be fairly competitive. How long until you apply?
  9. Chances for ANG UPT

    Guz, what did you end up with for a PCSM? Was I close when I said the 90s? Mid to high 80s maybe?
  10. TBAS Information

    Appreciate the input. With my current PCSM (77) at 21 hours, and my max PCSM of 96 if I had 201+ hours, the most I could raise my PCSM to given my hours would be like 79 or 80, right? Just want to make sure I'm thinking about this correctly.
  11. TBAS Information

    Good stuff, I will definitely consider it. Thanks!
  12. TBAS Information

    I retook my AFOQT and my pilot score went from an 81 to 98 and my PCSM score jumped from a 65 with 21 hours of flight time to a 77 with 21 hours of flight time. So 17 additional points on the pilot composite equated to 12 PCSM points which is very close to your 3:2 ratio. My max PCSM score with 201+ hours is 96 so I'm thinking that retaking the TBAS would have little benefit. Thoughts?
  13. Chances for ANG UPT

    Yep that's the site I use. I think it's the only place to get your PCSM. I don't remember entering my initials when I took the test either but maybe I just forgot about it.
  14. Chances for ANG UPT

    That's good to know. I want to update my hours to as recent as possible before I submit my packet so I'm glad to hear it's not a drawn out process (like some things seem to be in the military).
