This work is not only a complete guide to the United States Local Inspectors Examination of Masters and Mates, a treatise on navigation, nautical astronomy and law of storms, but a valuable text-book for the student and a handy work for the navigator to use as a reference.
At present, no other work is published which contains an exact list of questions given by the Examiners.
In the preparation of this work no effort has been spared in making the problems as plain and simple as possible, and the methods used are the most reliable, and can be performed with any epitome of navigation; but for convenience, only that of Bowditch and no other has been used in working out the various examples.
A complete set of problems, all of which are for the 1902 almanac, and cover every requirement of the applicant for a license as third, second, first mate, or master of either sail or steam vessels, will be found in these pages.
The examinations for third, second and chief mate are the same.
Any applicant for a license as master or mate who writes the answers to the questions given him, so as to contain the substance of those given in these pages, and works out the problems in the form given herein, will obtain the desired certificate. Concerning the rules of road, the applicant should make a careful study, and it is suggested that he make several small models and place on them, in their proper positions, colored marks to represent the various lights. Two days' practice with these models placed in every possible position will be of more service than any set of questions and answers that could be written.
By the use of this volume any applicant may prepare himself for the examination, and by so doing save the enormous expense due to attending school.
An applicant for a license of any kind should not attend any school which does not guarantee in writing that he will not fail at the examination, and agrees also in writing to return his money to him in case of failure.
