Air Force Study Guides : For Optimal Success

Since 2018, I’ve worked with a small team to create comprehensive study guides to help Airmen study for promotion and upgrade testing with McMillan Study Guides.

Using source materials written and published by the Air Force, I write single answer, multiple choice and review note questions in adherence with a strict style guide. In this role, I’ve honed my expertise in writing with a variety of technical topics. A high level of attention to detail is required, in maintaining the vital information shared in the Air Force source materials and ensuring comprehensive coverage for Airmen using McMillan Study Guides products.

While I receive specific assignments, it is vital I work with my team to collaborate in creating the best possible product for the men and women who serve our country.
