It'd probably be discussed in our leadership books if we had a police force, too.

Amen to all the above. As the Navy says "in gouge we trust" (gouge being the unofficial study guide) but the corollary to that is "live by the gouge, DIE by the gouge" because the unofficial stuff can so often be very outdated and WRONG...


So, my advice is the same: don't rely on amateurish quizlets as an authoritative source (any more than you should be using Wikipedia as an authority for ANY research).  In general, you shouldn't to use ANY unofficial, non-peer reviewed, inaccurate sources produced by amateurs as the sole basis for your academic preparation. Stick with the real source material (as cited here) and those learning objectives as your guide.

Yes, I have finally passed. Just a little note, the questions do not seem to be taken from learning outcomes.

Best wishes - repost in a week or two and let us know when you've passed - hopefully with a 90 something plus percent!


Good luck to you!

Have been studying from the books and have failed again, 78%. Hopefully I will get it next time.

Pause. Deep breath. Go to original source material (NOT ONLINE QUIZLETS WRITTEN BY POTENTIALLY FLAWED PEERS) and study the real manuals. Read the "learning objectives" for each chapter. Then, after making notes, try it again.

Don't forget, these "quizlets" are not done by CAP. They are done by other teen agers trying to help, and although well intentioned could be very, very inaccurate.

Keep plugging. Orville and Wilbur took months to figure out the basics.

I finally passed. Just a note, the test's questions do not seem to be taken from learning objectives. I didn't find much similarity. The way I passec was by using 500+ sticky notes and annotating every book...

I appointed a member this week as Assistant Safety Officer, and when the PDO
went in to add him to the SE Specialty Track, we found that he had already been added,
apparently by the system.

Certainly about time, and would negate easily closed, nonsense discrepancies, but this
is the first time I'd seen that.

Can anyone else confirm?
I noticed a few months ago. It even does it with temporary duty assignments.

The Commander or personnel Officer probably beat the PDO to the punch. E-Services is not omniscient, somebody has to put it in.

Thank you for the help, I have finally passed. Sadly I didn't make a 90%, but I was close. Got my Mitchell.

When I first joined CAP in 1967, a friend of my father said he was a CAP member in WW2.  He was in New Jersey and was given an unloaded bolt action rifle for beach patrol.  He described being so worried whenever he encountered someone at night he would work the bolt.....obviously he was no threat with an rifle demonstrated to be unloaded...

Let's look at it functionally. What does the squadron FM do? Basically balances the check book and keeps minutes of finance meetings. With the full implementation of the wing banker program, the special promotions for CPAs and Finance professionals was dropped, except for ones serving as wing FM. When planning the budget, all seniors should have input. Yes, even the Chaplain. The FM is not out spending money willy-nilly, nor are they setting priorities for how the money is spent.
