Study lots, and review with your wingman or a friend. Review with flash cards or some sort of game, make sure you know your rank structure. Also I don't remember if there's a time limit or not but don't rush if you can't answer a question then skip it and come back to it later.

Hope this helps, good luck!

I am currently going to be taking mine in 2 weeks so I am curious to know this as well.

But I found this awesome cadet on [youtube]. Here is the video link https://youtu.be/qocBAIPl6bw

Also, I made a study website for the Wright Brother's Test on what I think the test... Here is the link https://quizlet.com/267012785/learn

Anyone who has taken the Wright Brother's Test if you could, could you check the link out and tell me if I need to fix anything on there.

Stay away from anything other than your books.  That is what the material is from and what you need to know.  Also make sure you are taking the correct version of the test.

Only use your notes and the books do not use anything else.

What I did was first I read through the chapters several times, then I took notes on all of the chapters in a notebook, and then I made a quizlet and studied using the gravity game.

Also if you're going to use quizlet, I would recommend making your own, even if it is more effort than just finding one. It will help you study to write everything down. Also, you can't guarantee than anyone else's quizlet is going to be completely accurate.

Good luck!

Tangential to the OP's question, if you want to truly learn a subject thoroughly, teach it to someone else. That doesn't mean read them the book, but know the material well enough to teach it to another cadet. As you go through the lesson, you will quickly discover any holes or limits in your own knowledge of the subject and will then know where your studies should focus.

Wright is a closed book test which is now only available on line. They draw from a pool of 300 questions. Study everything, especially the review questions at the end of each chapter.

Are they completely online now or can I print a test from the question bank and destroy it afterwards?

I thought that was how it was supposed to work after 1 Feb, but I havenít figured out where to get the test yet.

I haven't heard anything about printing a test. So to be on the safe side I'd say just study for it

Youíre missing what Iím asking. I donít take the test. I administer it.

Paper, inventoried tests were supposed to go away on 1 Feb. they were to be replaced by a one-use test that pulls questions from the bank and randomizes the order. When itís taken and scored, it is destroyed and any failures get a new test with different and/or reordered questions.

I canít find anything on eservices except the regular, online proctored milestone test. My unit doesnít have reliable internet capability so this isnít a very feasible method for me. I need to be able to print paper tests.

A Testing Officer can download a copy of the Wright Bros. exam for one-time use. Go to eServices --> Cadet Online Testing --> Milestone Tests --> Download Quiz --> Select Quiz (from dropdown menu). This includes the answer key, so be sure to separate the last page before handing it to the cadet!

CAPR 40-2 requires that hard copy tests be logged and regularly inventoried. It mentions downloading, administering and destroying achievement and milestone tests, but does not say anything about logging those transactions. I think it prudent to log these downloaded tests, when they were administered and when they were destroyed.

With milestones with the exception of the Spaatz exam being online there is no longer a need for a unit to maintain hard copies of any tests.

That worked. Thanks!
