Recommended Posts


PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- The September 2016 Navywide enlisted examinations (Cycle 232) testing dates for active duty, full time support and canvasser recruiter Sailors who are advancement eligible to the paygrades of E4-E6 have been announced in Naval Administrative Message (NAVADMIN) 083/16, released April 4.

Each Navy examination consists of 25 professional military knowledge and 150 job-specific rating technical questions. The Navywide examination dates are Sept. 1 (E6), Sept. 8 (E5) and Sept. 15 (E4). 

Examination results will be released to command triads in November, before being posted on the Navy Enlisted Advancement System (NEAS) website.

"Bibliographies for the September exams have been posted and are now available for download on the Navy Knowledge Online and Navy COOL websites," said Master Chief Electronics Technician (Nuclear Power) (SS) James Berhalter, command master chief of the Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center.

To download the bibliographies and an exam-specific topic list for the upcoming cycle, go to the Navy Advancement Center's web portal on NKO at https://www.nko.navy.mil/group/navy-advancement-center/bibliographies?inheritRedirect=true. BIBs are also available on the Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL) website: http://www.cool.navy.mil/usn under the credentials tab.

"A good exam preparation plan is important because of the way the Navy grades exams," said Berhalter. "A Sailor's score is based off how many questions were answered correctly compared to everyone else taking the same exam. With that in mind, I would recommend Sailors use the official Navy bibliography as their sole resource for exam preparation."

During Advancement Examination Readiness Reviews held at NETPDTC, visiting E7-9 fleet subject-matter experts in each enlisted rating ensure all examination questions can be linked to references and publications. As rating SMEs select questions for the examination, an examination bibliography is developed for that specific cycle's exam, based on the source references for the questions on the exam. NAC updates bibliography information as fleet instructions and manuals change, and it is recommended that candidates check their bibliography a few times prior to the exam administration date.

Specific information on exam eligibility is detailed in NAVADMIN 083/16 and on the NEAS website. The NEAS website also enables education services officers to verify and correct the list of eligible candidates for their command, delete and forward examinations when necessary, and confirm examination ordering information. The NEAS web address is https://prod.neas.netc.navy.mil/.
