My plan for this post will be for it to be a rolling list of first-hand recommendations on AFOQT study material.  Leave a comment and I will update this post accordingly.

AFOQT Study Guide 2017-2018: AFOQT Test Prep and Practice Test Questions for the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test

Trivium.  Very closely mimics the test especially in the math portions.  It really helped me attain the extra edge.  I would knock the rust off with Barron’s, then go through Trivium very slowly to clear up the tricky spots.  November 2017

I did mine a couple years back, but this has good reviews on Amazon.  December 2017

AFOQT Secrets Study Guide: AFOQT Test Review for the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test

I used AFOQT secrets that I bought on  It’s a really good book that’s not full of unnecessary information.  December 2017

Barron’s Military Flight Aptitude Tests, 3rd Edition

This was a great resource to learn about the basics of aviation and also gave me a few practice tests to try out.  October 2016

Barron’s is great except the table reading is nothing like the actual test. Find the real table reading example from the air force site and skip Barron’s table reading.  March 2017

Barron’s is the master of all AFOQT study books.  December 2017

AFOQT Study Guide: Test Prep and Practice Test Questions for the AFOQT Exam

That’s the one I used.  It really helped my verbal score, but I don’t think the math problems were as diverse.  But then again, I just suck at math.  Haha.”  October 2016

Yes, the verbal part was key. I ended up getting a 96 in that section — I definitely attribute that to the study guide.  October 2016

Lowest score was an 84, highest 96.  I ran through all the practice questions a few times and brushed up on algebra.  October 2016

Have Barron’s as well, it’s very thorough. And it clearly explains both practice tests.  October 2016
