I have a question for the forum. I have a very motivated Cadet getting ready to take his Mitchell exam. Capmembers.com said theat the Cadets should study the Air Force Drill Manual AFMAN 36-2203, but CAP has it's own Drill Manual now, CAPM 36-2203. Which should the Cadet study?

Thanks

Both are the pretty much the same. CAP 36-2203 has pictures of CAP members in it and sometimes explains moves a little bit more detail. Either should be fine.

Use the CAP manual to insure there is no confusion.

AFI's and AFMANs may be the basis of many of CAP's curriculum documents, but they aren't the official reference
when discussing tests, etc.

It frequently has old or conflicting information, but I'm not sure what you're referring to in this case.

FTFY

CAP may have come out with its own manual, but the AFMAN is still the official publication to use according to 52-16 and it is the publication that the test questions are based upon. Also, because most of the material in the new CAP manual was literally copied and pasted from AFMAN 36-2203, it doesn't hurt to study the actual source document.

The test was written from the Air Force manual. Since we have not updated those test for15 odd years, I told him to go with what the curriculum says.
