The NAPT is 80 questions long, you need 50 to pass. If you were close to the NUC line score on the ASVAB but did not reach it, you will need to get 50 + the difference between your line score and the score required to qualify.You will be given a pencil, a calculator, the test, and a paper to put your answers on. It is multiple choice, so answering a question means filling in a little square. The questions are algebra, geometry, basic chemistry, and basic physics. On my test, there was no trigonometry used, but you should know the Pythagorean, but solving algebraic equations, finding areas and volumes, sums of interior angles, and names and types of polygons. The chemistry portion covered basic knowledge of atom construction and numbering, pH levels, chemical reaction balancing, and counting atoms in a molecule. For physics, you should have an understanding of momentum and the conservation of momentum, how leverage and mechanical advantage works, and solving time, distance, velocity, and acceleration equations.Sticky me?
This pretty much sums it up perfectly. Well done.
I took the test recently, so it's pretty fresh in my memory.
Me too. July '09 I fully expected to click on this thread originally and submit an answer. Much to my surprise, my thoughts and advice had already been posted.
I apologize if this question has already been asked before, but regarding the calculator that they allow you to use: I am wondering if they'll let me use my shiny TI-89... I know its overkill for polynomials, and its not like its more advanced features will be needed, but I am wondering if they outlaw some calculators, like in college Calc classes?
Outlaw some calculators? When I was in high school I took a college Calc class....they outlawed all calculators. It was the best thing that ever happened to me. Too many calculators in today's schools if you ask me. I had one of those shiny TI-89's for math team. If you were so inclined, you could probably find programs that would solve pretty much any problem on that test for you without actually knowing anything about what you are doing. That doesn't even include the advantage of text files you can put on there. The real question you should ask yourself is should you use that shiny new TI-89. Even if it is allowed, I'm thinking you'll probably be hurting yourself in the long run as that test is there for a reason, and that reason isn't to test your ability to get creative with a calculator or create massive text files explaining different concepts.I'm not sure if you can use it or not as I auto qualified for NF, and while I've yet to head to boot camp much less Nuke school, I have to think you wouldn't be doing yourself any favors by taking the easy way out. From everything I've read becoming a Nuke requires massive amounts of studying so at the very least trying to pick up good study habits now will save you many headaches down the road.
