of our creating a description of the benefits to be derived from use of

a few basic books (Chapmans, Gonder's The Coast Guard License from Six-Pac
to Master 100 tons) may be just as helpful as an expensive set of self-help
"The book is written in a highly personal style, mixing
advice, commentary on Coast Guard procedures and good explanations of test
procedures. All topics on the exam are covered, some ingeniously."
"I just want to say attain that your seminar at Lake
Tahoe was outstanding. I am enclosing an order for your book."
"I got the book in February and passed the test in
May and was immediately offered weekend work on a local fishing boat. The
book was a great help. I knew nothing about piloting when I started."
These testimonials and many more are included on the back cover of the actual book, but the best endorsement will be your own License, after you use the video volumes and this book to pass your Coast Guard License test.
