  1. Hi folks, I'm in the ULOTC in my first year, going through basic training. Basically, as it's only 1 day a week and 1 weekend a month, I feel like I need to brush up more on certain topics, like map-reading (bearings... haha.) Does anyone know if a book exists that covers all the stuff you need to know in basic training? I can only seem to find American or extremely dated books on the net.

    Thanks.
     
  2. Ask for a copy of the MTQ1 Precis from your Section Commander, or at least the relevant parts from it photocopied for you.

    This book is also great: Amazon Link
     
  3. thank you! I bought the pocket book. Although there is some info that's dated (e.g. 'sights down' in weapon handling) it seems to cover everything. Thank you!
