Postsecondary educational credit recommendations for formal courses offered by the Army and the Department of Defense are provided in this second of a three-volume set. (Other volumes cover courses offered by the Air Force and by the Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. See note.) Also included are postsecondary credit recommendations for all Army enlisted and warrant officer military occupational specialties (MOS's) evaluated through January 1978. Each course exhibit contains such information as present and former course titles, location, length, objectives, description of instruction and subject areas covered, and credit hour recommendations. The enlisted and warrant MOS exhibits provide such information as title of MOS, description of duties and qualifications, and recommendation for educational credit. Credit recommendations are given in four categories: vocational certificate, lower baccalaureate/associate degree, upper division baccalaureate, and graduate degree. Credit is expressed in semester hours. The appendixes include the following elements: the historical development of the Guide; which courses can be found in the Guide; information on enlisted and warrant officer MOS's; the evaluation systems for the credit recommendations; information on the categories of education credit; the enlisted special qualifications identifiers; enlisted career management fields; warrant officer special qualifications identifiers; conversion of MOS's to Department of Defense Enlisted Occupational Codes; and Army occupational title index. The concluding two sections are keyword and course number indexes. (JH)
