Study and Test anywhere you go!!! WITHOUT INTERNET!!! Studying for exams takes a lot of TIME! Between school, work, family and social time with friends things start to fall through the cracks. Many available study aids are great, but tie you to a desk chair and take a lot of time planning as well as having a high upfront cost to you. The books necessary are heavy and not very convenient to haul around with you. DON’T GET TIED DOWN STUDYING! ??? Have a moment to study??? Want to take a quick test while you’re… * in the cab on the way to your ship? * waiting on your instructor to show up to class? * on the way to take your test? (Just not while driving!!)

Most of the class is now using it along with several instructors.” ** “This app is everything you need to study for a license upgrade. My Murphy’s books sit untouched as I test over and over everywhere I go.” • Please email ANY comments or suggestions to make this App everything WE need it to be!! ALSO, Please rate the App, so other Mariners will know how you liked the App! THANK YOU for your help! !!! It’s never too early to get started, UPGRADE U !!!



  • Great app

    By Dr dinglenuts
    Pretty awesome someone put this together .. However on a couple of the terrestrial and celestial questions , they have different answers than Houston Marine and Murphy books , thats scary on tests you must score a 90 on ..
  • Good app, could be better with updates..

    By Bigboss85851985
    I love your app, I use to and it has helped me study immensely. I have to say though, the app needs an update. I see t hasn’t been updated for 3 years if I’m correct. Every time I try and take a Nav Rules test, the app freezes. Also, I’ve noticed a lot of your answers are incorrect. I’ve taken printed out lapware tests with the same questions and same information inputted into them but your answers are different. My answers when worked out match the lapware. It’s very discouraging and I’d like to see an improvement. Thanks.
  • Went 7:7 on my 3/M AGT Oceans Exam

    By Alan Campbell
    Studied for my third mate's test in its entirety using this app. I give it four stars because it does lack solutions for some stability and navigation problems... Still, excellent, and far cheaper than LapWare. 4-5 hours a day with this for a month, and you'll pass no problem :-)
  • Great app for preparing for chief mates/masters

    By Tres3333
    This app was great to supplement lap ware. I used this to prepare for all exams except stability. Solutions provided were well written and provided reference to which exam material you could find the formulas in. It included digital copies reference material which you can access offline. I used this while onboard my vessel without internet and had no problems. The only thing is they need to add stability solutions. Otherwise this is a great cheap way to help prepare for your exams.
  • A really good concept!!!

    By Capt. V
    While the ease of using this on my phone or tablet is brilliant. The really needs to be able to be used on MacBook’s as well! Hopefully the update of being able to be use the app on my laptop is in the works.
  • Needs Saving or Bookmark Function

    By Spongeanl
    App needs a saving function to pick up questions from where you left off. It gets tiring scrolling through thousands of questions every time you have to leave.
  • Great job

    By Captain Denny
    This is an excellent study tool. The questions are sorted and organized as well as any USCG exam prep app that I have used. Keep up the good work.
  • Good

    By Fnrndjdm
    Better than lapware, easier to use and works offline. Includes the reference material required (bowditch, ics, nav rules, etc) unlike so many others. Really a great application. My only complaint is that in the test review I cannot review the question I missed in its entirety. When attempting to do so I am met with a blank white page. Adding the cg question number to the test review page would also help us review to find what mistakes were made. Thanks!
  • Stability Solutions PLZ

    By 119er
    Solutions for stability would be nice. Very effective on terrestrial and celestial.
  • A great study tool

    By AKMariner
    Could this program be more encompassing? Yes. If you devote yourself to using all of the study tools this program offers will it get you a passing score on the dreaded USCG exams? Absolutely. There is always room for improvement, but this program already provides the tools needed to pass the CG exams at a fraction of the cost of competitors, i.e. Lapware, study classes. This is an affordable way to study for your exams in the palms of your hands. I would recommend using this app in conjunction with a study course, but if you seriously devote yourself and use all the tools it offers, it's all you need.
