Can I use my sleeping mat to take my PT test?

I was taking my PT test and the grader stopped me from using my sleeping mat. I told him the reg said I could use a mat. I am right aren't I?

You are half right. You are allowed to use a mat for the pushup and situp portions of the APFT, but FM 7-22 specifically disallows sleeping mats for this purpose.
