If you are not a seasoned offshore merchantman, to pass the Safety and General section you need to be familiar with the organization, structure and format of the CFRs. From my one exposure to the test, an experienced boater will get about 30-40% of these questions right off the bat, then about half of them can be found by careful searching of the CFRs, if you have some idea what to look for, and of where to look, giving you the 70% passing grade that is required. You can't study the CFRs.
