This is a comprehensive guide addressing the common Army promotion board topics—over 40 subjects. Information was taken directly from Army regulations, field manuals, technical manuals, training circulars, and pamphlets. All the study material is in question/ answer/ flashcard format. Hyperlinks are used in the larger sections to help better facilitate the blocks of information. In addition, to help support some of the question/answers, notes are provided throughout along with Helpful Hints to aid in memory recall.
There are a number of Army study guides in use today; some being around for years while others being the popular online study guides. So why use this study guide? It's simple:
This study guide was built using ForceReadiness.com's rock-solid M-Training System. ForceReadiness.com spent a great deal of time developing its M-Training System, and it shows.
Here are the benefits:
(a) Ease-of-Use. Do you find your blood pressure rising using some apps? So do we. You can end your frustrations now. We spent nearly as much time thinking about the user experience as we did actual development.
(b) Superior Feedback. All of your study and test progress can be viewed at a mere glance.
(c) Self-grading. You can actually grade yourself! It didn't make sense to us to ask questions without providing an ability to self-grade and track progress.
(d) Reliability. You expect the software you buy to work well. So do we.
(f) Comprehensive. This study guide includes all of the common and not so commonly asked questions from all the common Army promotion board topics-over 40 subject areas in question/ answer/ flashcard format.
BOTTOM LINE: Even though most study guides ask essentially the same questions. (They have to! The Army regulations, field manuals, pamphlets, history, and customs referenced are all the same.) They are not all created equal in terms of delivery, ease-of-use, providing feedback, and truly preparing you for the board.

Are you a Soldier in the United States Army? One event is standing between you and your next promotion. The promotion board. Whether you are studying for a Promotion Board, Audie Murphy, Soldier of the Year, or Sergeant Morales; this App is the tool you need to prepare yourself.
Board questions are pulled from Army regulation and doctrine. There are thousands of these documents, many of which contain hundreds of pages of information. Do you have time to seek out and study all of that material? If you do, go for it! Reading doctrine is a fantastic way to learn about the Profession of Arms. You can download these docs online and print a copy, highlighter in hand. You will undoubtedly learn a lot from that experience. Unfortunately, most of us do not have that kind of free time. That is where The Board Master comes into play.
The Board Master is your take-anywhere study partner for Army promotions. With this tool, you can master the questions frequently asked during Army boards. Simply hit “Start.” You will be swiping through flashcards in no time. Swipe to a question you want to study. Flip the card over to reveal the answer. You can flag any card as a “Favorite Card” and come back to it any time.
The Board Master app is based on the book by the same name written by Johnnie L. Hickson. Johnnie is a Soldier who has won numerous boards himself and challenged many of his peers to excel using his time-tested techniques.
Next time you find yourself bored during a long commercial break or sitting in the waiting room at the dentist, pull out your smartphone or tablet and start making your way towards more stripes, increased pay, and professional fulfillment.
- Content derived from numerous sources including The Board Master by Johnnie L. Hickson
- Professionally developed App, created and supported by the leading publishers of professional military reading and digital media.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We also love to hear feature requests. After all, we have made this tool for you. It should work how you expect.

In the United States, these cadences are sometimes called jody calls or jodies, after Jody, a recurring character who figures in some traditional cadences.

SMA Raymond Chandler has directed all Promotion Boards to use the new Army Doctrine Publications and Army Doctrine Reference Publications for their questions / board proceedings. The Army ADRP Board Study Guide has new questions from those publications, a collection of the Army Creeds, questions from current Army Regulations, current Field Manuals and more.
Presented in a simple 'Flashcard' format. No pesky permissions. No stupid advertisements. Easy content updates. Everything you need to study for Army promotion boards, company boards and soldier of the month boards.
:: FEATURES ::
Does not require an active data connection unless you are downloading new modules/topics. This means you can download/update everything before you go to the field, convoy across the country or deploy. Allowing you can study when you have time.
Simple Card Review Mode - In this mode you can review all the cards in your deck. You flip the card by tapping the screen and go forward and back by swiping. You can also jump to a particular card hitting the menu key.
Adaptive Memory Game - This Study Guide isn't just a flashcard review application. It helps you learn by frequently showing you things you didn't know, and waiting longer to show you things the more you get them right.
To use this component of the study guide, simply select "Adaptive Memory Game" from the lesson screen. In this mode, you don't slide the cards left and right, you just tap the card to flip it, and tell the application if you were right or wrong about whatever the card was asking. If you say you were right, the application will wait a bit (but not too long) before asking you again, otherwise the card will be shown again quite soon. Each time you get a card right it will take even longer to show up again. The game ends when you've answered every card correctly five times in a row.
Refreshing / re-downloading modules will update to the latest changes / content.
:: Content/Study material requests will probably happen before feature requests ::
If you find any errors or glitches please email me so I can fix them. I have tested this app on Galaxy S3 and the Google Nexus 7.
The primary goal of the app is to increase Air Defense Artillery (ADA) visibility among top officer candidates helping to encourage them to consider ADA when choosing a placement. Secondary goals include entertaining the player while teaching them about the ADA branch: day to day activities, weapon systems, etc., as well as providing information about the ADA and the army in general to interested civilians.
