When will the website be updated for the 2024 E-6 Testing Cycle?
A new version of the Study Guide for Testing to Technical Sergeant was posted on the official website on 1 October 2023. The new study guide is based on the current version of the Air Force Handbook dated 1 November 2021 and the content of the new study guide is the same as the current 23E6 version. However, the ADTC for the new study guide changed four sections (4E, 13B, 14A, 14D) from testable to not being testable. And one section (19A), which was not testable before, is now testable. This website's individual chapter pages and practice tests have been updated to reflect these changes. Please clear your browser cache to make sure you are studying the latest and most accurate content.
Why doesn't the content identified as testable on this website match what is listed in the Airman Development and Testing Chart (ADTC) in Air Force Handbook 1?
For unknown reasons, the ADTCs in Air Force Handbook 1 and the two Study Guides (for E-5 and E-6) don't match. According to the Studies and Analysis Squadron, the ADTCs in the Study Guides is the correct reference for what to study.
Are the 100-question practice tests under the Practice Test tab revised periodically or are they always the same?
The 100-question practice tests are dynamic and present a different test every time a test is started. The pool of 3,000 - 5,000 questions from which the questions are selected is updated periodically as needed.
Why am I unable to select or copy text in the section quizzes?
The inability to copy text is not intentional. Try using Compatibility View or selecting No Style (View, Style, No Style) in the browser tool bar.
What exactly is free on this site?
Access to all the section and all the chapter tests is free for 30 days. However, the 100-question practice test area is not available to trial account (free) users. This area is reserved for our members.
If I register for a trial account, do I need to cancel to avoid being enrolled in a paid account?
No, no action is required. Users are not automatically enrolled in a paid account when their trial account expires. Note that credit card information is not required for the free 30-day trial.

The site asks for credit card information. Is the information protected?
Yes. The payment page, where credit card information is entered, is protected. The lock icon in the browser's address bar indicates the page is secure. Note that IE browsers on base may indicate an error due to their restrictive configuration.
If I buy a 2 year membership now and the AF decides to update the PDG to the next version in October will I have to pay for another membership? Or will that be included in this one?
The membership will end 2 years from the time of sign up. If the PDG is revised during that time, you will continue to have access to the current version (which will be kept around a while for out-of-cycle testers) and will also have access to the new edition until whenever 2 years runs out.
Are memberships automatically renewed after 2 years?
No. This site does not store credit card information. If you want to continue using the site after your membership expires, you'll have to manually renew your membership when it expires.
Is the site compatible with Kindle Fire/Android/Samsung smart phones and tablets?
Yes. If you want to test, sign up for a trial membership first.
Does using this site constitute a test compromise? Have any official agencies contacted you concerning test compromise?
No. Using this site is not a test compromise. It cannot be a test compromise because I don't know what will be on the test. I have not been contacted by any official concerning this site.
I registered for a free trial membership. Why am I unable to access the practice test tab?
With a 30-day trial membership you can access all the individual section and chapter tests but the practice test area is reserved for our members.
