AFOQT Test

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I plan to take AFOQT by the end of the year. I bought a book to study; however, there are some questions that I would like to ask.

1) Which websites/ sources should I use to do more practice questions? The book does not have enough. 

2) Is it a good idea to focus on Pilot & Nav score to get the best one and just have the minimum on aptitude, verbal and quantitative?

3) How did you study for Aviation Information? I have PPL, but it has been for a year, so I don't remember 100% what I learned on that. 

4) English is not my first language, so how do I study for English subjects like Arithmetic Reasoning, Verbal Analogies, etc? The examples in the book are much easier than the one I found online. I don't know how the test is, but I assume it is harder than the book to make me study more. 

 

Thank you,

Edited by John Wayne

I'm just a fellow applicant, so take this with it's commensurate grain of salt. I did score very well, for what it's worth.

1) I would buy more books - I had a few and did all the practice tests more than once.

2) No. Aptitude, verbal, and quant are just as (if not more) important as far as I know.

3) I didn't really study for the aviation section because I'd already passed the PPL FAA test and it's all similar. I would just review whatever stuff you used for the FAA test.

4) I would pick up a reading hobby with some more challenging books. This is just a general life tip, as well. You will pick up a lot of vocabulary surprisingly quickly (and without trying to) by just reading good books 30-60 minutes a day. FWIW, I found most of the test to be nearly identical to the Barron's book I started with.

Thank you so much. I appreciate your response.

FYI, the pilot score and nav score are made up of different sections. I think pilot is make up of Arithmetic Reasoning, Math Knowledge, Instrument Comprehension, Table Reading, Aviation Information.

Nav is the same way, but I don't know which sections make it up.

So to get in the 90s in the Pilot or nav section, you need to do decently in your other scores too.
