The Naval Academy Candidate Handbook:
How to Prepare, How to Get In, How to Survive

by William Smallwood
Paperback (1994)

A must-read for prospective candidates!   As a Naval Academy "Blue and Gold Officer" (BGO), I carry this book with me during all my visits with parents, prospective candidates, college fairs, etc.   It gives VERY good advice about a lot of the issues of not only getting INTO the USNA, but also how to survive once you are accepted!
Robert R. Gotwals, Jr. LCDR, USNR (personal opinions, not an endorsement from USNA or USN)

Excellent!    If anyone wants to go to the USNA they must read this book!  I'm going through the admissions process right now and I couldn't have done it without this book!   Hopefully the Air Force Candidate book is just as good!  GO NAVY!

Indispensable reading for aspiring Midshipmen.  The Naval Academy Candidate Handbook is absolutely worth its weight in gold to anyone considering attending Annapolis.  It was extremely helpful to me when I applied there, and it provided an honest and accurate picture of what to expect at the Academy.  I recommend it to anyone I talk to who aspires to USNA, and have passed my copy on to several others who were in the process of applying.  This is the one and only book you need, it's got it all.  This '97 grad can't imagine going through it all without the Candidate Handbook. GO NAVY!!!

U.S Navy Sword

It has been medically proven that maintaining your physical health through a regular exercise program is one of the best ways to combat life stress.  The U.S. Naval Academy has spent decades developing a physical fitness program that can be done by anyone, anywhere.  And The Official United States Naval Academy Workout shows you how!  It follows the proven F.I.T. principle: Frequency, Intensity, and Time.
This workout is for all ages and fitness levels.  With photographs and illustrations, you will easily get in shape, using the same principles of the United States Naval Academy!
Los Angeles Times: "Oprah Winfrey has a workout.  Cindy Crawford has one, too.   No doubt Jerry Springer will have an exercise plan before too long.  But if you're not shipshape yet, you now have a new choice of guru to help you get fit The United States Navy.  The Naval Academy workout provides a six-week day-by-day regimen covering everything from stretching and ab work to lower- and upper-body exercises." ** This article appeared in print and on-line.
It was a excellent book.  I thought it was a excellent book and it really helped me to get in shape when I go to join the Naval Academy.  I am very committed to getting in the Naval Academy and making it as a Marine Pilot.  I loved this book!  I would recommend this book to anyone who plans on going to the Naval Academy or just wants tips on how to get in better shape.  It is an excellent resource and especially if your planning on going to the Naval Academy.  If you are planning to go to the Naval academy I would also recommend "The Naval Academy Candidate Book How to prepare, How to get in, How to survive" also an excellent resource.

The Brigade in Review:
A Year at the U.S. Naval Academy

by Robert Stewart, William Lawrence
Hardcover (1993)

United States Naval Institute

This visually splendid coffee-table book is in its own way as stately and ceremonious as the Naval Academy itself.  It covers the Annapolis year from the gruelling introduction of the plebs to the academy to the graduation of the senior midshipmen 10 months later.  We learn much about the buildings, curriculum, customs, and people (including a brigade of midshipmen now integrated by both sex and race) of one of the fundamental institutions of the U.S. Navy.  This is not a "warts and all" view, to be sure, but the amount of information and the quality of the photographs compel us to overlook that and certainly make the tall, slim book invaluable for popular naval collections.
