Gish! I used the Houston Marine books while working as an instructor for those who needed the licenses. 100, 200 ton and an occasional six pax.
So check with Houston marine and other schools to see if they have home study.
Has anyone used this text to prepare for the exam? I have all the Bowdich, Chapman's, etc. texts which I am using at the moment but I have been told by some folks that this book is not to be missed. However, it seems it is out of print and all the copies on the internet are quite expensive, ~$95 at best, over 200 at worst, though the original price is only $29.95. Maybe there is still a site out there with a reasonably priced version but I don't think so. doylemarine.com has them for 31.95 but when I called to confirm, they said they were out of stock and could not get any more.
Does anyone out there have a copy they would be willing to part with for somewhere around the original price? You could even have it back once I complete the exams...
