Abstract : Selection of Army personnel is that which is achieved by examination procedures at the reception centers. Better initial selection will reduce wastage. In addition, suitable preselection of men in relation to the requirements of their tasks will materially shorten the training period and yield a more efficient unit. To do this, criteria of selection were established and the mechanics of the test procedure were set up.
