USPS Courses--Issues

I''ve been taking some USPS courses, now in piloting. Overall, I''ve been quite pleased with the local instruction but the texts seem out of date...example, GPS is not covered very much...BUT working with TRUE is.

They also have what appears to be a test question generator that is random, so you can wind up with 3 questions of "wooden boats" or Western River nav, but only one on
deviation.

Making suggestions to the various committees doesn''t yield much. Text updates are years in coming and when they do arrive, they seem
woefully out of step. The local instructors have to provide info the texts should cover.

Am I the only one that is frustrated?
