Any good practice tests I can buy cheap?

I'd like to test my knowledge. Any good tests with broad coverage I can purchase?

It seems a bit odd to pay 100s of dollars to sit in a class when I can just self learn it all.

Regards

buy any of the texts used by US Sailing or ASA sailing schools. there are tests at the end of every chapter.

A somewhat random search found this site, which has two levels: Goddard Sailing Association

I think this is what I did before I started sailing much: Online boating safety course, boating license test, certification

Find an ASA or US Sailing course offered near you, it will be a weekend well spent for basic keel boat in classroom and on the water training.

2 days with someone that knows what they are doing will save you several weeks or months discovering by yourself.

Re: Any good practice tests I can buy cheap?

Yeah nauticed is pretty good. Tests are a bit trivial though, which is what I'm mostly looking for rather than the material itself (which you can get from other places).

Re: Any good practice tests I can buy cheap?

Tests are overrated .

First question for you:

"How do you know where the wind is coming from?" There are multiple answers.

Always good to test your knowledge. It's easy to assume you know something.
