Anticipate Blow work with missile weapons?

The example in the book uses melee weapons but it's a 3rd circle discipline talent for archers.

thanks

Anticipate Blow clearly says it gives a bonus to the first "Attack Test".
Page 377 wrote:1. Make An Attack Test
Whenever a character attempts to attack a target, whether with a weapon or a spell, he makes a test using the appropriate talent or skill. This type of test is usually referred to as an Attack test. For example, if a Swordmaster is attempting to hit a foe with his sword, he makes a Melee Weapons test. If an Archer is firing an arrow at a foe, he makes a Missile Weapons test. If a Wizard is casting a spell at a target, he makes a Spellcasting test.
