Musician (MU) Archive

This archive contains all of the topics that have been rotated through the Musician (MU) Navy Wide Advancement Exam since 2015. We are only including the most current versions that we have of the references. The exam writers typically pull questions out of the same pool of questions that are mostly from the same references each cycle. They may pull questions from different chapters, versions, or newer versions of references but the topics don’t change that much. If you spend time mastering everything on this page year round you will always be ready to ace the advancement exam rather than trying to cram four months before the exam. Study this page all year and then specifically focus on the bib once it comes out and watch your scores improve.

This archive can also be used to study from when you are waiting for us to upload the new bibs, to get ahead of the curve for the next test cycle before the bibs are released, if there are any changes to your bib that we don’t have, or if you just want to study anything pertaining to your rating that isn’t on your most recent bib.

Advancement Exam bibliographies always come out in April, July, and October for the Active Duty exams. First time exam takers always have a huge advantage over other people because they are not waiting to start studying until after the advancement exam results are released two months after the bibs come out. Do yourself a favor and study a little bit each day and take advantage of the full six months of prep time you are given. Prepare today to succeed tomorrow!
