I am Developing a section of the "Most Frequently Asked Board Questions" so that Soldiers can study those questions first.  The purpose is to help Soldiers become better Educated and earn quicker Army Promotions by assisting in not only their Army Educations but also their College Educations as well.  I Highly recommend that you study "ALL" the questions from Main Subjects and I also Highly recommend that you read each of the ADP's & ADRP's so that you are familiar with them.  Do not rely solely on the Questions/Answers that are listed here or in the "Most Frequently Asked" section as this site is just designed to assist you.  Also, some Leaders get their Questions directly from the AR's, FM's, ADP's and ADRP's.
