With the East Coast buried under a record snowfall this weekend I had the time to sit with the latest version of SeaSource’s website’s new exam software beta, and found it every bit as good as previous editions.
If you are in the process of upgrading your ticket, this system lends itself to the task well since it has everything one might need for pre-exam review. It has the distinction of being FREE and has a comprehensive and frequently updated database of USCG questions. The very same ones you’ll see in the exam room.
I have written about this software and website in the past and it’s creator Stephen C. Littlefield has maintained headway over the last 14 years by continuing to make improvements and updating his software. Now it’s our turn to help him debug it. He’s seeking the input of mariners young and old to make this product as good as it can be.
The home page of his site explains all you’ll need to know and what to expect as far as performance of the software. The setup is straightforward and allows moving from one module to the next with a click. If your’re feeling confident, you can take on an entire module of questions without interruption or take smaller bites and track your progress. Some functions in the new version are unavailable as of this posting though they are sure to be incorporated in the final product.
If you are studying and looking to test soon, this site offers a good way to supplement your study regimen and hone your chops to stay familiar with the USCG exam mindset. The old version is still up and running with the hope the new setup will take its place after the “debug” cleans up any glitches. Help a guy out and give it a try.
Send your comments and suggestions to the webmaster. I can’t think of too many other sites that offer such a comprehensive and well presented program as this one. Steve offers other study materials for a small fee along with the free exam software. Take a test drive and see if your studies would be served by his work, you can’t beat the price.
The biggest issue we face in the licensing ordeal is cost, this is a terrific alternative for many of us.
