500/1600 ton prep class

I hope to test for my 1600ton mates license around nov. I’m enrolled to take the prep class at fletcher with capt. Bruce. For those you have taken the class, how well does it prepare you for testing? Best way to go? If not, any books for self study? Companys paying for it fwiw. Thanks

Bruce will give you a checklist and a shit ton of books covering every element of the test. You can work a your pace. I will tell you one thing tho. If you do it right and buckle down I can almost promise you you’ll pass the first time. Goodluck

Thanks for the reply, I’m looking forward to it
