I’m selling my set of Murphy books. This is a set of six books edited by Captain Joseph S. Murphy comprising the Deck Officer Study Guide. They are described as “US Coast Guard License Examination Preparation for the Professional Mariner”.
I used them to study for and successfully pass my exam for Chief Mate Unlimited and a friend also used them to get his Third Mate Unlimited. These also cover the limited license tests so would be great for any of the following Coast Guard exams, licenses and renewals:
Master: Oceans - Near Coastal - Inland - Great Lakes, Any Gross Tons
Chief Mate: Oceans - Near Coastal - Inland - Great Lakes, Any Gross Tons
Second Mate: Oceans - Near Coastal - Inland - Great Lakes, Any Gross Tons
Third Mate / OICNW: Oceans - Near Coastal - Inland - Great Lakes, Any Gross Tons
Master & Mate: Limited License, All Routes, All Tonnage Groups
Review & Renewal Exercises:
Comprehensive Renewal Exercise, All Grades of License
Rules of the Road Exercise, All Grades of License
Able Seaman / Lifeboatman, All Grades of Certification
Each book covers an in-depth study of various key subjects, with complete USCG exam questions and answers provided:
Book 1: Deck General
Book 2: Navigation General
Book 3: Deck Safety
Book 4: Rules of the Road
Book 5: Navigation Problems
Book 6: Deck Examination Illustration Book
This is the latest edition and the best resource for passing your Coast Guard exams.
A new set of these costs $250. My set is in excellent condition, obviously used but no rips or tears, no markings in the books apart from my initials inside the front page.
The price is $150 (plus shipping $25 - Total weight is 9.5 lbs.).
