It is not enough to memorize the answers to the questions.

I was hoping for a little discussionon on some of the rules.

I think I will post the answers this way in the future.

It will site the rule and wording from the study guide.
I know you will have to bounce back and forth to figure out the correct response.

Knowing the answer is OK but it is always better to know why the answer is what it is.

I am going to keep this up because I really want to get the license but I can't time away from my business to take a class.
so I am going to do this and then challenge the test.

If anyone has issues with this please let me know and I will stop.

You know there is an on-line course..but you still have to take a test with that school (I think)..and it's still easier than walking cold into the USCG test...it used to be Mariners School out of NJ...may want to check it out.
