How do I calculate prop slip for my six pack test?

My name is Richard Montgomery and I just recently purchased Get Your Captains License second edition. I love the book and have only really had one problem. I may be blind, but I can not find any information on how to calculate the apparent prop slip of a vessel. I have noticed that this question is often asked in the navigation problems section and since I will be taking my test in one week, I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction. I would be extremely grateful for any help. Thanks!!

Richard Montgomery
