What is the best way for training for CBT?
boyda posted this recently in another thread. I printed it out for my son since it seemed really helpful:
Just a few off the top of my head.
2)Mentally prepare yourself to NEVER lie/cheat/steal ever again.
3)Learn movie quotes and fun trivia. (trust me)
4)Practice getting ready in as little time as possible.
5)Practice the APFT as well as any other workouts you like.
6)Mentally prepare for yelling. (ie know you will get yelled at and don't let it get to you)
Just out of curiosity, why? And what type of quotes and trivia?
My guess is from when we were there, a lot of upperclass when they were bored (waiting in formation, sitting at dinner, marching in parades), would pick a plebe and say, "Tell me a joke". Guessing this is similar - kind of a "stump the upperclass" competition.
Especially during meals. If you entertain them, it will be an easier meal. Sometimes they would ask for movie quotes or trivia and if nobody volunteered they would just entertain themselves by asking us knowledge.
so I should definitely start remembering good jokes too then.
