Score High on ASVAB
I found this book very helpful in preparation for the ASVAB. I scored a 90. It helped to get familiar with the format of the exam itself, as well as the way questions are worded etc. It was that much less to think about at exam time.

How to Win a ROTC Scholarship
As a father trying to help his son get a scholarship, this book was a blessing. Not a whole lot of fluff in here, this book gives it to you the ways it is. The insight into how the process worked really helped. The guidance obviously worked; my son received a full 4 year Naval ROTC scholarship! AWESOME! I can’t tell you how much tuition this book saved our family! And more importantly, our son can serve his country.

Army Basic Training: Be Smart, Be Ready
If you are considering the military, this book is helpful. In addition to reviewing the information that is available to you in the Army handbook (available free from the Army on the web), Raquel D. Thiebes tries to give you a feel for what to expect emotionally from all the drilling, the classes, and your team and drill sergeants. You even get to go through the cafeteria line. She doesn’t want you to join and wimp out. She lets you know what happens to trouble makers and how you can work on leadership skills.
United States Military Service Academies
Air Force Academy Candidate Book
I have always wanted to go to the academy and after purchasing this book I know what I need to do to get in. It provides you with every way possible to prepare, tips for the nomination interview, how to get a nomination, and tips from actual cadets. It even tells you what your experiences will be once you arrive there. For those who seriously seek admission to the academy, BUY THIS BOOK.
The West Point Candidate Book
A very good book for those interested in attending the United States Military Academy. Provides very straight forward information about what is required, what it is like being a cadet both good and bad. A perfect book to give to either the parent of or the interested student.
Naval Academy Candidate Handbook
The Naval Academy Candidate Handbook is absolutely worth its weight in gold to anyone considering attending Annapolis. It was extremely helpful to me when I applied there, and it provided an honest and accurate picture of what to expect at the Academy. I recommend it to anyone I talk to who aspires to USNA, and have passed my copy on to several others who were in the process of applying. This is the one and only book you need, it’s got it all. This ’97 grad can’t imagine going through it all without the Candidate Handbook.
