    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.  

    Stay safe.

    the differnce in nav rules and DWO is one was just knowing the information and the other is applying it. Per my BM1 at my last unit. If that makes any sense to you

    You need to put the book to memeory.

    Plain and simple.

    those practice tests on that site are good. you need to be getting 100%s every time for like a week before you are ready to take the real test.

    You need a 90 percent which is 5 wrong out of 50.

    You have to wait 21 days when you fail to retake, so I took it every 21 days until i passed it the 5th time with a 94.

    I struck BM so i had to learn it on my own, in A-school they dedicate a week for it to make you pass so you probably will. If you dont you fail out of school.

    I would definately try to pass it at your first unit before you go to school.

    This test sucks. Ive never felt like such a failure every time i failed it. My other BM supervisors... it took them like more than 10 times to pass. Its no joke.


    Just memorize the book and keep taking those practice tests, the questions are part of a 1099 large pool of possible questions.
    You can only make yourself look bad.
