Ok so I had a few question and wanted to see if some one could help me get a few answers. First of I have a DEPOT date of Jan 8 2012 and a BM A school date of Feb 12
My first question is did they change the DWO exam recently? I read the Nav Book and have been doing some prep from the www.boatswainsmait.net website but when I took a look at the USCG.mil website for the DWO & Navrul Exam the sample questions http://uscg.mil/nmc/training/2010q3...stions.pdf
have stuff in there that is not in the Nav book. I was wondering if they changed the test or I missed a book to study from?
Second the CO of the unit I am being assigned to gave me advice to start studying for the DWO exam because its tough and he has had lots of guys fail it. I am pretty good at studying from a book and committing things to memory and have read the book and am working on learning the information. My question is about taking the test. Can I take the test at any time? If I get sworn in a month early can I take the DWO exam as soon as I am sworn in? Then again before I ship to BM school? I know they give you the opportunity to pass in BM school but I was thinking if I can take it early and see what it is like and maybe pass that would be one less thing to worry about?
Thanks for you time and help.
