[quote=anchorman;19439]Boston was the last REC centralized, and I think Miami was right before them. Boston had a good reputation, but those days are gone. All RECs operate in a “store front” capacity only. They do not evaluate or issue licenses anymore and most personnel are not there anymore. Now, each REC is only as good as NMC because that’s where all application are forwarded. I would only “AVOID” an REC based on information from experiences in their current form, not how they were last year - It’s not the same - whole different animal now.
You have to test where you submit? When did that happen? Each test is generated off the NMC server now - on demand, it should not matter where as long as you’re approved?[/quote]
Where is a good place to test? I heard New Orleans/Mandeville had junk for pubs that are used for the testing such as tide tables, current tables, H.O. books, etc.
