Excellent book for Capt. For the most part this book is packed full of information, however alot of it will fly over your head if you don't know the terminology. This book could be truncated if 2/3 of it wasn't test questions and answers. Not the way to learn course plotting in my opinion. оставлен batdude200005.

I used this book and CD to prepare for an inland master's exam. The CD is very helpful and allows you to rapidly practice the exam and receive a score. Two major warnings:
1) The "master and mate inland rules of the road" practice exam on the CD doesn't really test the USCG "inland only" questions. You have to set it up to do a "custom" exam and select inland only.
2) All the navigation problems on the CD were just course - speed - time problems not involving a real chart. On the real exam the problems were specific to an actual chart as in "Starting from a point two miles due East of Ferndorf Light plot a course......". You are therefore probably going to need some other source of training on the navigation problems besides this book and CD.

AFTER POSTING MY REVIEW, I WENT TO THE SITE PROPOSED IN THE BOOK, CALLED EXAMIAM. IT IS RUN BY THE BOOK PUBLISHER AND INCREDIBLY, IT SHOWS AN OPTION WHERE I CAN NOT ONLY GET UNLIMITED EXAMS ONLINE (LIKE THE OLD CD), BUT I CAN GET A COPY OF THE BOOK I JUST PAID 30 DOLLARS FOR ONLINE. SO, I BOUGHT A PHYSICAL BOOK FOR 30 DOLLARS AND I COULD HAVE GOTTEN THE BOOK (ONLINE ACCESS) AND THE UNLIMITED TESTS (WHAT THE CD USED TO OFFER) FOR THE SAME 30 DOLLARS. TO NOW ACHIEVE WHAT I WANTED, I WOULD HAVE TO PAY ALMOST 60 DOLLARS. THE DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT ON AMAZON BY THE SELLER IS DECEPTIVE AND UNFAIR. IF YOU WANT THIS BOOK AND WHAT THE CD HAD TO OFFER, GO TO EXAMIAM SITE AND GET BOTH INSTEAD OF PAYING TWICE. DISSAPPOINTED.

I pre-ordered this book, because I wanted the latest edition to be able to take the test. I have an earlier version, which was fine, but I feared it was dated, and what I wanted was assurance that I was dealing with the most current rules. I was most interested in the CD/DVD that came in prior versions, which allow you to take tests on the computer and be evaluated. To me, that is the feature that sets this method of studying for the exam apart. Anyway, I assumed that it, like all past versions would come with a disc. IT DOES NOT, which is a disappointment and a surprise as the description does not mention its absence, but I now see does mention that you have access to a website to do what the disc used to do. THE USE OF THE WEBSITE requires another $30.00 (apparently you get a 20% discount). This info is not in the item description and is deceptive as the prior versions contained a disc and suddenly one is missing from the newest, revised version. So, if you buy this book, which I didn't really need, for the purpose of getting the ability to use an updated ability to take tests on the computer, you are not getting that, simply a reference as to where you can purchase it.

The text is essentially the same as the third edition, with a few typos corrected. It is helpful for the task of preparing one for the exam, but not quite sufficient for the task in my opinion. You will also need to read Chapmans, and other sources, and I recommend a nifty iphone app for the rules of the road, and there is another self-study CD ROM on line that is VERY helpful. Google will find it for you. If you use all of the above sources, you will pass your exam.
The best part of Get Your Captain's License is the CD ROM that comes with it. The CD ROM generates practice tests using the actual questions from the Coast Guard exams. The Fourth Edition has updated the exam questions from the Third Edition, and this is the reason to buy the Fourth edition rather than the Third. You can take the captain's exam hundreds or thousands of times until you pass it every time. Then you are ready.

I bought this as a supplementary review. Its OK for that, if you already are familiar with the material. Its pretty lousy as a primer though. If you don't already have some experience with plotting current vectors or intercepts, advance and transfer problems etc. you won't find a good explanation of the material here. The stability section is about as clear as mud. You can figure most of it out, but there are probably other better texts. I sure hope so.

The question sections are also cumbersome. You have to flip back and forth to the answer page to check. I wound up just cutting mine out of the book so i could refer to them more quickly. Plus you have to flip to the back every time a question refers to a diagram. Way too much time wasted flipping back and forth. The CFR is bad enough, you don't need even more energy wasted on such. Oh, and one answer section had about half of the answers missing altogether. Then there is the plotting sheet.Be careful with it, since it is a misprint ( I think 130 degrees is listed twice on the compass rose) I would check, but i'd have to go and fetch my magnifying glass. That reminds me... the print is hard to read.
Pretty lousy book actually. I give it three stars for just existing. Ah, heck... two and a half.

If I had to do it again though, Id probably do the same thing. Buy a book like this one and find an online source of current coast guard questions (try googling "questions cost guard" or some such)

I used an older edition of this study guide as an aid when I took the captain's course (100 ton merchant mariner, near coastal) through a local maritime center. It was invaluable to me. The course moves so swiftly through the material (IMPORTANT material) that it's difficult to take it all in. Charlie Wing's information is complete, very well organized and illustrated, and matched with corresponding test questions from previous exams. The accompanying CD has hundreds of old exams to take, they're graded automatically, making it easy to ensure you have a handle on the material. I bought this edition for my husband when he took the captain's course. It was updated with current changes in charts, etc. Must have for anyone trying to get a mariner's license.
