Just finished up at the exam center. Averaged 89% for 200T Master NC. Your
website was instrumental. Thanks so much!!!
I just wanted to thank you for creating this online
study guide and testing database. I just took my 1AE Unlimited Motors, the tests
all went great thank you to sea sources.
I see you email every now and then about what to
focus on and it's a huge help. The only thing I would add is maybe emphasize
studying the new Generals II questions. I took the test with three other guys
testing for their firsts and we all agreed Generals II had the newest bank of
illustration based questions, over half of the illustrations I had were brand
new I even had some in color, on hydraulics and refrigeration.
I hope my insight is not seen as intrusive just
wanted to share my recent testing knowledge.
Just wanted to tell you that I passed my First Eng
unlimited this week. Thanks for the helpful tests, enjoyed your website.
I found the actual tests to be more of the old questions
that were in my books, but the dates on them were all over a year old so
whatever newer questions weren't in them so much. One thing i did notice
different from my 3ae in 2009 was in the electrical part especially, that a lot
of them were pertaining to digital/transistors/the effects or properties of
various digital stuff, etc that sailors normally don't deal with, which
obviously makes it hard for people to do well.
I can't tell you how impressed, and incredibly appreciative, I am of your
celestial nav section online. The time and thought you have put into making the
materials clear, concise, and as simple as possible is very obvious. I have
looked through every text I could beg, borrow, or plunder from a shipmate, and
none are as dead on at making C nav almost fun to learn. I look forward to
perusing your other subjects and purchasing some of your other vid lessons to
take to sea with me.
Thank you folks for the great study guides. They
have helped me prepare and my grades have improved AND I actually am
learning the material. I will continue to use this source for studying.
Great Lakes Maritime Academy.
Thank you for the test material. I
passed all of my C/E modules this week on the first try.
Keep up the good work.
started a water taxi business on the Lake of the Ozarks this past summer. Not
having anyone to guide me or to turn to for help your site has been very helpful
to me and I would like to thank you for the time you have invested in the
is the best. Have you ever thought of partnering with a maritime academy?
Thank you for all the study help! The site is great!
This is amazing and very helpful. Thank you very
I just want to thank this wonderful study site. I passed the
four modules that I needed to get my near coastal towing endorsement. I don't
think I could have accomplished this with out this site, since I haven't had to
test in twenty years. Thanks again
Thank you so much. I have to say how impressed I
am that someone has taken the time to do this. my partner is an engineer
and just going to upgrade his ticket and carrying thousands of books and
questions onboard is nearly impossible!
look forward to working with you site!
THIS IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE WEBSITE FOR RULE OF THE
ROAD TEST. It is very user friendly and a great study tool thank you!
A MARINE ENGINEER ASPIRING TO GO FOR MY HND PROGRAM BY MAY, AND I REALLY
WANT TO APPRECIATE YOUR SITE. GOD ALMIGHTY SHALL REWARD YOU....
I HAVE TALKED WITH SOME OF THE GUYS AND THEY SAID
IT HELP THEM OUT A LOT . SO I, AM HERE TRYING TO GET MINE. AND ALL THE HELP I
CAN GET . THANK YOU
I have went through a lot of different maritime schools and
courses over the last 12 years. I wanted to see how your study material compared
to the rest. I am currently study to upgrade to a 1600 ton inland lic. I also
have a associates degree in nautical science. I wish I would have know about
this site and programming when I started probably would have been a lot easier.
I would like to take first, this opportunity
to commend you whole heartedly for your WEB site, and your seemingly
honest effort to bring a much needed service to your fellow Mariners. I
commend you, and feel fortunate that I found out about your service 2 yrs.
I just have to give you all a huge thanks and big kudos for hosting such a great
website. I just "found" it and have started to use it via the practice exams,
etc. Great stuff! and thanks for offering it for free. Wow! wonderful exams
with quality diagrams too. Thanks much!
When it comes to mariner education and license
upgrades, I don't make a habit of promoting one product or another
since they all pretty much do what they need to do albeit for a stiff
price at times. I came across a
license prep website a few years back and took a liking to it right
away, it was free.
The ability to quiz yourself on
any subject and have a running total on your progress was just what I
needed for some exam prep. Did I mention free? I wish to add I have
no affiliation with the authors of the site. I do however applaud the
product, it has matured nicely over time. There is software for sale
but the free online practice exams are very handy.
Hi Steve; I
recently used your online study for specific subjects. I helped
very much. I passed all modules. Thanks for making this
available. 1600T Master
Thanks for the help finding the Downloads The test are a Big
help. I did not know about this site until after I started testing
for DDE, Assistant and Chief fishing. I passes Safety and Motors
but failed General practices and Electricity. The USCG Examiner in
Portland OR. told me about this site . I am home studying now and
will go back in a couple weeks to pass my retakes.
Steve, thank you for all your help getting me
stated on here and answering all my questions. I think I have
everything down at this point. This is the best site I have fount
by far anywhere, and the fact that you are free is fantastic. It
shows you really do care in helping fellow mariners begin or
continue there education. Every other site wants to charge
outrageous amounts, and you don't even know how good the product
will be. Thanks again! I greatly appreciate it!
Thanks and am having a great time taking
these tests cold turkey with little to no knowledge of most
subjects but am learning and grading better each time…great help!
Gotta love it Must be able to laugh at yourself and I’m howling…
With the help of this sight I was able to upgrade from a 100
to a 200 ton license. I do not think I would have done it without this great
resource. I have been telling all of my friends about it.
Well I took Elements 1, 3, 7, 8, & 9 and scored
100%, 96%, 90%, 96% & 100% and earned my GTMDSS Operator/Maintainer
Thought you'd like to know.
Thanks for your help and the use your practice exams.
Thank you for the chance to practice the USCG
deck/sail questions. I scored 19 out of 20 and passed my sail
endorsement test on Friday. I now hold my 50 ton, coastal, sail
license…with your help.
I have just passed the two first
sections of Motor 1 & 2 at Seattle Coast guard. Your study guide was
right in line with the questions that I got. Both scores were 81%.
The real truth to the matter was that I had gone to "Crawford
Maritime's" refresher course for the past month and came away from
them feeling very poorly. After studying your course on the computer
the following week, I felt more confident and ready. You guys are
let my license expire after I quit sailing. I had to take seven USCG
test modules to get it reinstated. With the help of your online test,
I was able to pass all seven modules the first time. Got my Chief
Steam and Motor back. Thanks guys. Anything I can help with at your
I feel like I should drop
you a line and let you know how much your site helped me pass my exam.
I just graduated from the California Maritime Academy and I used your
resource to help me through the Rules of the Road section. The way the
inland rules were in a separate section from the international rules
really helped me to remember the differences. Also, the mock tests
were more helpful to my memorization than the way the questions appear
in "Murphy's". The site also helped me with the sections on deck
safety and deck general. I have recommended the site to several other
people. Thanks for helping me get my initial issue.
This is to say thanks and
to let you know that I recently took a test with the USCG for AUX SAIL
and passed with a grade of 100% Studying with your program probably
made a big difference in my grade, and I really appreciate the extra
I just wanted to thank you
for this web site. I am studying for my 3rd Mate license and this is
going to be a key in getting my mind ready for these questions. A
friend of mine did this bank of questions by himself (by hand) and it
took quite a bit of useless time. As a Navy reservist in charge of 12
potential and 3 qualified coxswains, I have used the site for their
training. I have also recommended it to several others outside my
All of my classmates
recommend it for cramming for the Rules module, they're pulling 98's
and I'm pulling 88's.
Seems like a great way to
get information. Not much solid info on some things out here. Glad to
have found this site
I REALLY LIKE THE WAY THE
Q&A ARE SETUP WITH THE DIAGRAMS IN WITH QUESTIONS. I HAVE NOT RAN
ACROSS ANY OTHER CG Q&A CD's IN MY SEARCH HELP IN SETTING FOR MY 3RD's
LICENSE. THE PRICE OF THE CD's VERY, VERY GOOD.
Thank you for your web
site. I am studying for my 3AE license and I find your site to be an
excellent help with my studies. Your test questions are a real help
when it comes to being familiar with the standard verbiage that I will
find on the USCG test.
Great Site!!!! I teach at
Texas Maritime and ran through a stability module yesterday at work.
Are rules your only CD for sale? Thanks MM
I really have enjoyed your
site. I just took my AB test yesterday and got grades of 97% on
Lifeboatman, and 88% & 94% on the two AB sections. One small
suggestion I might have is that, if you are planning to add any more
questions in the future, you might include some on the hand, light, &
code beach to boat lifesaving signals. There were a lot of those
questions on the test. Once again, I feel that your sight is wonderful
and I have given the link to several others who are studying. I will
continue to use the site as I work on license upgrades.
YOUR SITE WAS HIGHLY
RECOMMEND BY A FRIEND FOR THE TESTING OF THE USCG LICENSE
I have not regret visiting
your site. A very good source of knowledge in the field of seamanship.
Great illustration by the use of diagrams from [rules of the road]. I
think I am now more competent as coxswain
GREAT SITE TO ENHANCE
ONE'S ABILITY IN SEAMANSHIP THOROUGHLY.
Well organized and
recognized organization, that, I believe, will enable me to complete
the requirements, to pass the USCG exam and obtain a captains license.
Appreciating you guys for
creating an online study so some of us could learn from home and I
find it to be the best I have ever come across.
would be nice to add a few
more quizzes for general nav such as: compass correcting, chart
projections, rhumb lines, great circles, who publishes each pub,
definitions of- azimuths, bearings course, course made good, heading,
track, speed made good, fix, running fix, LOP, Dead Reckoning,
converting GMT to ZT, questions on magnetism and which magnets correct
for which deviation, variation/deviation, special case bearings, tidal
calculations. Those are some of the things that we are tested on in
Nav 1(terestial nav) at Great Lakes Maritime Academy. I have not taken
all of your tests, so I probably overlooked a portion of your
material, some of these things you already have. I liked the section
on Aids to Nav, it was very thorough. It would also be nice if you had
chart problems to print out. The Coast Guard uses like 3 charts for
their testing and if you could provide additional chart problems for
these it would be very helpful. If you are interested I can E-mail you
an example. Also multimedia tutors would be cool for like doing chart
work, plotting and doing current sailing and whatnot. You could have
an example chart with audio and visual instructions. I am a second
Year cadet at Great Lakes Maritime Academy and these are a couple
thought that I would find useful for studying for exams.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET THE
CFR S DOWNLOADED THAT WE MAY NEED FOR DECK GENERAL? IT WOULD REALLY BE
HELPFUL IM GOING FOR MY 100T MASTER 200TMATE THANKS ANYWAY THIS IS AN
AWESOME SITE KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK

Hi Folks, Seven years ago,
I was taught how to use a sextant and the Nautical Almanac, by an
expert in Navigation. Several months ago, I picked up my old notes and
the copy of the my 1997 Almanac. I was a little fuzzy using the
Almanac until I came across your Website - it brought it all back to
me. Your site is so well written. I'm sure it took much time to
develop but I'd like you to know how much it means to people in my
situation. I'm in the local USPS, here on Long Island and now when
anyone talks about sight reductions, you made it so that I'm right
"there" with them. Thanks for your efforts.
This is the best way to
study yet I'm sitting for my 1A/E License and I'm sure i will do fine.
Going to the book's is a great way to study but when I found this web
site I just sat the book's aside on the computer makes studying very
fun you get an overall feel for what your doing. Thank you all for
This is really starting to
look Good! Al
Excellent Site for
Mariners Seeking License Prep - This site speaks for it's self. The
resources and services that Seasources.net provides is outstanding. My
progress towards a Third Mate's license is advancing in leaps and
bounds. My classmates ask me how my studies have gone above and
beyond, I tell them: "Go to Seasources.net, I swear by it!" Thank you
for making a stellar site. John California Maritime Academy
Greeeaaaaaat - Excellent
and easy to use. I was impressed with the quantity of material here.
Have not yet started to work through it all yet but will do so in
SeaSources was Recommended
by a class mate who scored 100% on USCG rules of the road exam after
using this site as a study aid.
Hello SeaSources, I tried
studying Celestial Navigation through Bowditch and found it mind
numbing. Your online course is great and understandable. Thanks Capt.
While studying and using
your on-line questions I was able to pass the USCG Exam for my 100 ton
masters license. Thank You Capt. Joseph
I would like to compliment
SeaSources as an excellent resource. Although I was only testing to
add the Great Lakes to my current 1600 Tons Master Inland License, the
quiz questions were extremely helpful. I was unable to find any other
assistance on the web (including the USCG site) on what topics the
exam would cover and sample questions. In closing I would like to
thank SeaSources for providing the necessary information in order to
pass the Coast Guard exam.
Very inspiring, thank you!
Good luck to you in the future.
I am 39 years old. I left
the semiconductor industry six years ago because my stress level
exceeded my SAT scores. I have lived in a ski resort since then and
have spent much time contemplating my future. Your online schooling
has given me a second chance at a new life other than being a ski bum.
It also puts my skills from when I was in the Navy to use. Thank you
for a new life.
DEAR SIR, I HAPPENED TO
HIT YOUR WEBSITE BY CHANCE. I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY APPRECIATION
AND GRATITUDE FOR TAKING UP THE TASK OF EDUCATING MARINERS ONLINE FOR
FREE. YOUR ENDEAVOUR IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF PUBLIC SERVICE AND A
NOBLE USE OF THE INTERNET. I HAVE BENEFITED IMMENSELY FROM THE USE OF
YOUR ONLINE QUIZZES. HOWEVER, I MAY BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION THAT SOME
OF YOUR GMDSS QUIZ SENTENCES ARE INCOMPLETE. YOU MAY LIKE TO CHECK
THEM OUT ONCE AGAIN. WITH REGARDS AND GOOD WISHES,
Hey Steve: I hope you are
doing OK, Im interested in ordering from you everything needed for
starting to get my eng. documents. Call when you get a chance
My counter indicates that
I have quite a few referrals from your site, so I just thought that
I'd pop in and say "Howdy!" ----- HowdyDave
hi mate I worked out the
problem downloading, I'm off to a good start now, with the studying.
My folks sent me an email
about this site. I have been in the Navy for over 7 years and
unfortunately let my 3rd A/E license expire that I got thru Maine
Maritime Academy (class 0f 97'). I will definitely use this site to
help me get my license back. Thanks,
Thank you for this website
,and keep helping us all in the maritime industry any time that I'm
going to get any endorsement in my MMD I certainly come to your
website in order to study ,and it prepares me better. Thanks .
Great site guys, please
let me know if you are interested in exchanging links with our sites.
I recently finished my
USCG Engineering testing and received my 3AE unlimited motor license.
Thanks is due in part to SeaSources online study and I want to
sincerely thank you folks. Your twenty question repetitive format is
right up my alley. When I start to make more $$$$$ I want to purchase
the whole set of questions.
Hello, I just found your
site and I'm very excited to share it with my shipmates. We are tall
ship sailors aboard the brig Lady Washington. After a year of
volunteering, I am pursuing a career as a mate/master. Several of us
aspire to get our AB and Master's licenses, and this site appears to
be a very accessible, thorough way to reach this goal. Thank you for
the time you have devoted, as this seemingly user-friendly forum is
rare! Between the "advice" I get from fellow sailors, either green or
salty, and the confused jumble I find on the USCG site, figuring out a
way to fit the studying/class time in, and figuring out exactly which
classes are needed has been hard. I hope to be able to join and use
your site very soon.
Great site guys, I will
share this with friends
Good site; Lots of good
Great work ... excellent
site Bob Donovan
Thanks for the great web
site. I passed my exams for Master Inland and Great Lakes 50 tons,
with Sail and Towing, and without question your on-line exams were the
most helpful study aid that I used.
MY NAME IS MUGU MUHAMMED I
AM A TRADER I LOVE THIS SITE KEEP IT UP.
I, am appearing for my
class 4&2 exam, I, have gone through the sample papers&found it quite
good, but I could not find any justification\reason for the answers,
