I dont think being an ET on a sub will give me so much of a challenge....LOLOLOLOL
evo,i had to take the napt and it wasnt dificult at all. I was prepared for trig identities and electron orbital notations and that kinda stuff, and i received a blessing. A very simple test to me that consisted of questions like algebra 1 and 2 little geometry. the chem questions were like what does Na+ rep on the periodic table... just simple stuff. of course there were difficult questions but overall not bad. if u need any help preparing let me kno and ill give u all the advice i can, seeing that i just took it a few months ago. Best of luck
I understand what you are saying, but I already can perfectly spell and punctuate. Sometimes it's just quicker for myself to type like I do, quick and improper.
One day you may end up trying to get a job with some of the people who post on this board, or you may end up working for one of the chiefs who visit here, do you really want to make the impression on them that you've made on me?Mike
I passed the test...I got a 66/80. I know it's probably not that good, but for me it was awesome being as how I only needed a 53 to pass.
C. Tell the guy or girl giving you the test they remind you of your favorite uncle or aunt. Please try to keep the gender consistent.
Can anyone give me an idea of what's on it? I've been told that it has algebra, trig, and maybe a little calculus. But that's all I know. Thus, I have only the vaguest idea of which concepts to review in studying for this test. Does anyone know exactly which concepts the test covers?
John,If you are going into the Nuke Field, you won't be learning Arabic. With or without DLAB. If you don't go Nuke, you will have to pass the DLAB to get any languages (as I understand it).Your recruiter is probably right about the NFQT without a diploma. Don't worry, if you can't pass the NFQT then Nuke School would not be a good fit. But you should do fine with a good ASVAB score.
Hello everyone. I was wondering if I need to take the DLAB in order to learn arabic in the navy. I scored a 99 on the asvab, but have a GED. Also, I was wondering if I have to take the NFQT to enter the nuclear field. I have no criminal background, no tattoos, have never used illegal drugs, and am 19 years old. My recruiter said that no matter what my ASVAB score is, I still must take and pass these tests in order to qualify for the corresponding jobs. Does anyone have any information regarding this?
hi, i was wondering if i would be able to still qaulify for Nuke. i read somewhere that your asvab score + your NAPT score has to equal 290. i didnt score high enough to qualify for nuke with the asvab, and didnt get a passing score of a 55 in the NAPT, but my scores were high enough to put me past 290. ASVAB= 247, NAPT= 49 == 296. would i be able to get in the nuke still
VE+AR+MK+NAPT = 290 (with minimum 50 NAPT score) or AR+MK+EI+GS+NAPT = 290 (with minimum 50 NAPT score) or VE+AR+MK+MC = 252 (No NAPT required) or AR+MK+EI+GS = 252 (No NAPT required).
You'll do fine on the test. They will give you a calculator to work on the questions [I forgot they even gave me the calculator & finished the test early.] Pretty much know ur units, conversion [meter/inch] & the basic physic equations [F=ma, etc]
Whoaaaa...calculator?? I used a calculator when I took the Nuke entry exam at the Houston, Texas Meps late in 1984 and was almost done when my recruiter walked in and told me I was not allowed to use a calculator on the exam. He took the exam from me (scored a 69 after he graded) and said that we are to pretend that it never took place and he would schedule me for another different Nuke entry exam (without the calculator) because they didnt want to ruin my future. I took "the exact same" exam the following week and scored a 72....
That's not "Those Were the Days", that was the All In the Family Theme Song."Those Were the Days" was some Russian sounding thing covered by lots of folks but I always relate it to Tony Orlando and Dawn, although I do not know if they even covered it. "Those Were the Days" just seems to fit Tony Orlando and Dawn perfectly, you may be a few years too young to remember all this.
frickin' nukes,...always gotta have a comeback,...... The flamer emoticon is my favorite, he just looks like he's having way too much fun,...
THEY HAD CALCULATORS PRE-1990?Whoaaa.....
Long in the tooth that I am, they had calculators back in 1974,
Long in the tooth that I am, they had calculators back in 1974, although we weren't allowed to use them. Went through nuke school using a slide rule for all the math. Nowadays it's just a neat looking ruler that extends out. Don't ask me how it works anymore for math, though I knew once a long time ago, and I was amazed then at how accurate they were overall.
Do you have to be able to pass the physical requirements to be a navy nuke?
My eye nearly snapped when they rolled back so hard.
took a 75 R dose to the brain, did ye?
I'm very nervous for the test, and so have been studying like crazy. I did well on my asvab, 88, and was only 4 points off, 246 out 250, from being automatically qualified for nuke. With that in mind, should I be stressing so much over the NAPT?
Lastly, I hear they let you use calculators, so can you use a texas instruments Ti-84 graphing? It can transmit data, which I heard they disqualifies them. If anybody knows if they check, and go by this it would be great, and if so recommend a good graphing, or scientific calculator which fits the regulations.
Here is some advice:Avoid pointing out 'stupid' things that 'smart' people do, because the 'smart' person knows what he is doing (that is why they are deemed 'smart') and the fact that you may think it was 'stupid' is because you are so.
Hi guys.. so heres my situation maybe you can help me out. I scored a 92 on the AFQT my combined total of all the tests was 650.. my requiter says thats good. The paper i got also says i don't need to take the NAPT.. however my problem is i didn't go to a tier 1 school in high school and the highest math class i've complete was basic algebra. i was told not completing higher math makes it hard to get into nuke. I've had hardly any college classes and i'm beginning to think my recruiter might be slow.. does anyone have any advice on what i should do to make sure i get in and if i even qualify?? any advice would be welcome.
What do you mean when you say you "didn't go to a tier I school in high school"?
. And they will both clearly understand each other with a vocabulary of 100 words, not all of English origin.
Hi. I am 17, still in high school, and just signed up for the Navy. I got an 87 on my ASVAB, but scored a 238 on NUKE so I have to take the test as well. My current job is a CTR so I am not sure if I should try for NUKE or not. I have been adviced to by my recruiter and the Chief, but not sure how I will do. Can anyone tell me what type of things are on the test? Last night was my first time even hearing the word NUKE!!!!
I will definitely keep you guys posted. I really do appreciate all the great advise and comments that you guys have given me because right now, you all are all I have to go by. My family is not the most supportive or even try to stay informed with what I do, and my recruiter has little information about because he is not a NUKE. So thanks everyone for your help.
The above link given to you would be of great help. Read everything you can on these forums and most of your questions will be answered. There are many here who can be very helpful. Congratulations on your desire to serve our country, we are lucky to have you. Now, go do some research!!
My first recommendation is to ask your Nuke Recruiter. He'll have the lastest information for you.Secondly, reconsider your thoughts of "maybe my calculator is illegal but hey guys...do they check?". Do the right thing in this field. That simple philosophy will carry you a LONG way. Besides, guess what happens if someone figures out DURING the exam that you're essentially cheating. Feel free to search "cheating" and "integrity" in this forum in your spare time even if only to note the number of postings on the subject.Finally, I don't think I ever used a graphing calculator for anything but calculus courses (outside the Navy). A cheap Casio FX114 or whatever $20 or less scientific calculator should be fine. Otherwise, I'm known to read more into postings here than I should, but it sounds like you have a fear of math (i.e., using a calculator as a crutch?). The (only?) way to ease your fear of this important subject is to practice, practice, practice. In the future, you'll likely be more graded on how you set up a problem...not how fast your fingers got to a 5 significant digit number that fails to answer the question. It's been awhile, but you may find yourself losing only 0.5 pts on an 8 pt question for a math error, and all 8 pts if you fail to understand the concept.The best advice I received in high school from my amazing Physics teacher: "I don't care what YOUR answer is...I want to know how you got there!"Welcome to the world of Engineering.Co60
Do you want to do exciting technical things that no one understands?Want stimulating schools that teach one-of-a-kind procedures on old legacy equipment?And, do you want to do them in an air-conditioned cube farm, or out at sea in a sweaty engineroom and eating monkey-on-a-stick in exotic ports of call?
I do not have a NUKE recruiter because my recruiter is not a NUKE. How do I get in contact with one?
You walk into your recruiter's office and ask for a name and telephone number. Then you say, "I'll continue discussing Navy options with you once I speak with someone that can anwer my specific questions."You DO have a Nuclear Recruiter...you just haven't asked to speak with him yet. Right?
I was not aware that there even were different types of recruiters. I definitely did not know that there was a NUKE recruiter because up until two days ago, I didn't know what NUKE was. I am scheduled to take my NUKE test on Tuesday, so should I ask for a NUKE recruiter before or after I take it?
Before you sign the dotted line. Make sure someone has answered all your questions...in person.The test is simply a preemployment test. If you pass, you can be considered for a position, which you have to formally accept. Otherwise, there are many fine jobs in the Navy.Again, I only offer a suggestion for you to look at what you think you may want to do AFTER the Navy. Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with a tour in the Military...as long as you get an education or skill set out of it. Hence, my question...what do you plan on doing after the Navy as a Crypto Tech? Maybe just the GI Bill and college afterwards? Nothing wrong with that either. All questions for you to decide.I plan to just stay in the Navy for as long as I can. This is why I hope to get a job a truly enjoy because I am hopefully going to be doing it the next 30 or so years. My goal is to be financially stable by the time I get out.
Which is anti ethical to being a nuke. Mike
im takeing the napt test on wed and im worried about how ill do, i got an 86 on my asvab and a 245 on my nuc line score, it seems like i have to get a combined score of my nuke and my napt of 290, and i would only need a 45 to do that, is that correct? and if so how hard will it be to get that score? ive never taken chemistry, physics, or trig, but that was because i was lazy in highschool, not uninteligent. ive been studying the basic concepts of physics and chem, how much more do i need to know and how much do i need to worry?
Forget the fact that private schools on average test better than public schools, forget that I just basically aced the ASVAB. It's basically just another thing the government does because you came from a non-government school.

I would love to comment but I would have to send my post and this thread to PolySci.

I think maybe in NNPS I signed in to study about 15 hours total.
Just an update on this question. I went to MEPS St. Louis yesterday and scored a 99 on the ASVAB. However, I was told that just because I went to private school I would have to take the additional test. No one told me about that before I went down to MEPS, and they wouldn't let me take it that day, even though the administrator was there and we had the time. So I'm going to have to take another day off work sometime and drive the several hours to St. Louis to take the test, in spite of an impressive ASVAB score (if I do say so myself). Forget the fact that private schools on average test better than public schools, forget that I just basically aced the ASVAB.
