Aren't you planning on joining the Air Force? Air Force fitness test is composed of:
1. 1.5 Mile run (when I went through BMT it had to be completed under 11:47)
2. 1 minute of pushups (I believe the minimum in BMT was 45)
3. 1 minute of situps (Minimum in BMT was either 50 or 55, I can't remember)
4. Waist size (not very important, but must be 36" or less)
(BMT standards are slightly higher than AF standards)

You don't have to enter BMT in great shape. First time I ran in BMT my run was something like 16:20, but at the end of BMT it was 11:30. As long as you don't give up or cry about it being too difficult you'll be fine.

When I was in DEP I asked my recruiter the same question you did and he said: "If you're studying for an Algebra test would it be more beneficial to practice solving arithmetic problems or Algebra problems?" Best way to prepare for the AF fitness test is to run, do pushups, do situps.
