New questions bank and what it means for lap


#1

There is no question lapware is the way to go for license prep.
Ill definately still be using them but here is my naiive question: when sitting for upgrade in jan 2018 can I expect SOME of the questions to be from the published and therefore workable through lapware?
Or is it all “more or less a guideline” now ?

Memorizing test questions is no way to prove your competence. Actually learn the material, which for the navigation and stability problems lapware is quite good for in my opinion.


#3

It seems to me that coastguard exam and proving your competence are mutualy exclusive …
Advice aside (thanks though)
My question was:
Can one still rely on lapware or has the coastguard departed entirely from the former questions


#4

The questions are updated the wording is different. As Traitor Yankee points out Lapware is quite good I found the solutions the most help covering material I needed work on.

Correct, only if you’re not given the opportunity to memorize the questions.


#5

For the engineer exams, a large % of the questions are bullshit trivia and not conceptual or theory based at all. And multiples are even wrong.

How about this: Two 100 Watt light bulbs wired in parallel consume how much power? The USCG says 100 Watts.

Has anyone else had a problem with Lapware? It seems like all of the links are down for the last several days. I have emailed with no response. I also emailed Richard Plant and got a mailer deamon. And when you call the 410-544-4732 number, it has a rapid busy tone. Anyone have any ideas whats up?


#7

A bit. My problem was that it kept asking me to clear out the cookies. I use Chrome as my main internet browser. Lapware is not working real good on that but is opening for me fine on Microsoft Edge.


#8

Yes that was it! Thank you. I have no idea why but they tell you, you must have chrome, but it dosent work with chrome…odd


#9

you mind if I ask a few questions? I am brand new to lapwre. As I say I purchased it, and never got it to work until just now by not using chrome. So when I purchased it, I purchased the package it said to purchase if you qualified under the old rules, which I do. however now when I open the question banks, I see multiple types of questions including new questions?
