    My son will be attending USMAPS @ West Point 2011-2012 -- it's been suggested that he get his hands on the cadet handbook to read prior to....how do I go about getting this? Any other tips for prepping for USMAPS?

    Thanks! GO ARMY!

    my best advice is to talk to the parents club of whichever state you are from there are probably a few parents of current prepsters and ones who are still at West Point that could be willing to lend it to you. Hope this is helpful:shake:

    I'm not sure about WP, but for navy you can order it online at the official naval academy store. I'd imagine west point does the same.

    I wouldn't go and memorize the cadet handbook because it is very different from the CC handbook. The information is the same, but the cadet handbook has lots of extra things that CC's are not required to know. A good start would be memorizing the army rank structure, (Schofield's definition of discipline, the definition of an officer, and Worth's battalion orders - these may be excerpts from a speech, but I'm not sure. Still they are VERY lengthy and difficult to memorize), the entire Army song, Code of Conduct, the three General Orders, and The Soldier's Creed. All of this is completely verbatim. If you're only going to memorize one thing, memorize the Soldier's Creed. You'll say it all the time. The rest of the info you'll need to memorize is short, such as mottos, values, and conversational memorization (meaning you just have to explain it).
