depends what branch you are interested in. In the usmc, for instance... you have to complete boot camp. Then you can go to a MOS school. It depends on how many applicants they are accepting at that particular time. Most will not pass. I think they only offer two courses per year, but I may be wrong. the scout sniper course is broken down into three sections. Marksmanship, observation, stalking. you will be tested in each area and expected to finish in the top percentile of your class. Just to let you know, everyone and their dog wants to take the course, so getting accepted could take a while.

watch miltary channel

I saw a show on the military ch. called sniper school. seems easy on t.v. but i would recommend that you hone your shooting and stalking, ect at home and target ranges the sighn up for sniper school.

blow your load. joking.... but kind of serious too.
it all comes down to breathing. You have to lower your heart rate and get into a zone. this usually takes a minute of controlled deep slow methodic breaths and concentration.

what i know is

to slow your heart rate is to meditate. consitrate on the targets movment and adjust to get the right shot. always remeber you must be 100% completly in the zone. no one is saving you and your spotter if you miss

heard that

Very skilled snipers will also try to shoot between heartbeats as to add more accuracy to the shot.

Being in shape
