I am preparing to test for my Chief Mate Oceans endorsement and was wondering if anyone had some tips or tricks for the test? I’m having a hell of time with the running fix problems. I think I have the math down, but have trouble plotting. I heard there are ways to memorize some of the lengthy celestial questions.
One person said to memorize the last two numbers of the lat and long for the 3-star fixes. I heard something about .5 at the end of Longitude for noon running fixes. I’m memorizing the Gnomonic chart questions because I do not have a Gnomonic chart.
I know that I should be learning how to complete the full questions, but I’m testing Thursday and running out of study time. Just wondering if anyone else had some more tricks?
