Re: ASA Exams

I teach Basic Keelboat part-time.

The test is pretty straightforward if you've studied the book, and especially the questions at the end of each chapter.

I think each instructor has their own style, and students have their own learning style too. I tend to follow the "let's sail first, then you'll see afterward that the book is 'right'" approach, with a minimum of initial chalk-talk. the boat makes a better "blackboard", and you avoid "MEGO"*

*("my eyes glaze over")

Good luck and enjoy the moment, whether afloat underway, at the dock, or ashore with the book.
