The Open book part is on the Nav Plot, Nav gen, & Deck Gen/safety.
You will have for the area you are testing in; Coast Pilot, Light List, Tide & Current tables and the CFRs (Code of Federal Regulations). Plus a Diagram book that covers all subjects.

For OUPV you may have one or two questions requiring the CFRs.
For Nav Plot & Nav Gen you will need all others that I have listed.

Bring your own plotting tools. Your Caculator can not be programmable. But a good scientific caculator such as a Casio FX300 will do you good. But you have to be really use to it before the exam.

Also the Geographic range table & the Luminous range table are found in the light list. You may have a question or two that may require the use of them.

The deck exam contains; Deck safety, Seamanship, Boat construction, Fire fighting, First aid, CFR, and Weather. The CFRs and the Diagram book are needed here.
