the best guide I have seen and the one that I used is "get your Captains License" by Charlie Wing printed by International Marine. It should be readily avaliable at most Marine stores. You also should study Chapmans Piloting, The Annapolis book of Seamanship as a minimum. The book by Charlie Wing comes with a computer CD-ROM that will give you sample tests so you can practice which I found very helpful indeed. Finally don''t hesitate to contact your local Coast Guard and talk to a license examiner. They can tell you all you need to know about documenting experience, and other recommendations to help you on your way (and since they are the guys who will evaluate that experience its well worth talking to them!!!) Good luck...

Good luck talking to an examiner in S.FL region. It''s like talking to a wall. It took me over 4 months of badgering to get my Master''s forwarded to me. Now everything else (CPR, First Aid, Drug Testing) runs out in a few weeks and I have to start all over again. I finally called the Commander for the Florida Region and spoke to him and got the name and number of the lady in charge of licensure review, which you can''t get otherwise. The 800 number is a joke. I thought the bureacratic processes here in the Caribbean were bad. I guess nobody has anything on the Fed Gov''t.....
