I got this off Lapware this morning :
[B]In response to a query from a LAPWARE user I have inquired with the NMC about the removal of the United States Annotated Code. Here is the repsonse![/B]
[B][I]“The students should be able to memorize the bank of questions pertaining to this issue. The USCA (U.S. Code Annotated) is being pulled from the Exam rooms.”[/I] NMC[/B]
[B][I]“I have never been on a vessel that had the US Code on board, nor have any of the 7 other mariners in this division. We consider these to be questions that should be answered without a reference. For example, a mariner isn’t going to consult the US Code to figure out if something needs to be recorded in an official log, they need to know what goes in there.”[/I][/B]

Chief, Mariner Training & Assessment Division (NMC-2)[/B]
Are thhey planning on removing any other references?
