The Navy Advancement Exam

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Tony

The Navy advancement exam is 175 questions, of which 150 are occupational and 25 questions are professional military knowledge. The occupational questions are researched, verified and written by rating Chief Petty Officers during Advancement Exam Readiness Review (AERR) events. The Chiefs selected for the AERR decide what number of questions to ask under each topic and subtopic. Every question is tied to an Occupational Standard and a specific reference.

Those references are combined after the questions are loaded on the exam to develop the exam bibliography. Each Sailor gets three hours to complete the exam, and scores are determined by comparing rating advancement candidates, where the highest score goes to the candidate who answers the most questions correctly. There is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly, so be sure to leave no question unanswered.

      Registration Validation Email

      01/09/2018

      There is still an issue where people registering do not receive the validation email once they sign up on this forum. If you do not receive and respond to the validation email, it will not allow you to become a member. Please check your spam boxes or ask your IT for assistance and whitelist NavyAdvancement.com if you are able to do so.  This is the message I see: "Member has not yet responded to registration validation email."
