Hello

I just got my flash key saturday and have spent the last couple of days
working on the electrical section
and I would like to tell you this key will be a god send for any
mariners who purchase it
it is easy to use easy to read with the diagrams the way you have them
set up so I can go back and forth between them and the questions.
I will buy more as my career advances and I will tell my fellow
shipmates about your product
I truely feel now I can pass my electrical test at the Rec after using
this key, nobody else has a product this good ...I've tried them

Thank you

I recently passed my 500 ton master oceans with the help of this product ,it really helped and it will work on a Mac

If you have windows on it I use Parallels desktop for Mac.  I recommend this prep course for anyone getting ready for USCG testing.

Good Day Joe -

Thanks for passing that info on to me, it was very helpful. So what I did was order Parallels Desktop for Mac, and a Windows 7 system Install Disk. Two programs.

 Now I believe you can download both from the web but I wanted the hard copies on hand in case of any error. You can probably also use Boot Camp which comes with the newer Apple OS's, the one downside to that is that anytime you want to study you have to reboot your computer in Windows Mode, then reboot back to Mac when done. Where's with Parallels, both OS's can run simutainiously, greatly improving the chance that you'll actually study. I know thats the case for me. Once Parallels and Windows are installed, anytime you insert the USB Drive the Mac immediately recognizes it as a windows program and opens Parallels on your desktop. You can then access the Exam Application exactly as you would any other program. Very smooth and flawless once the extra programs are installed. I tried several other programs such as Codeweavers but with no success as they weren't able to recognize your application. This might change in the future but as for now the best, and possibly only, solution is Parallels for Mac. I think this would be valuable info to post on your website as it might encourage others to order your programs when they have a Mac, instead of them just seeing that  they need a Windows OS under system requirements and not realizing that they have an alternative to run it, letting them know that they would still be able to use it even without a PC. I know that I would have ordered it much sooner as I had been looking at it for months before sending you my first email.

And now, back to studying! Thanks again.

Hi Joe

Passed the DDE 4000 exam on the first try.  Your program was certainly a major reason...   ...I didn'l even have to use the calculator that I brought to the exam room.  I started testing at 0800 and was finished with my final exam by 1100.

Mariner Advancement,

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,

I just passed my QMED Oiler test and the answer to every question popped in my head before I finished reading the questions. Your program has made this way to easy.

Hello Joe...

My name is Nick Aguilera. This is the second time I've written to you.
Last time was about a year ago to let you know your DDE Unl.software
worked superbly as I passed that exam with great scores.
Today I'm writing to let you know that several months ago I purchased
your Chief limited/3rd asst. software. I've begun testing.
Last Monday I started testing for the 3 rd asst. and began with Motors
1 and 2.  The first of the two contained many questions that were not
in your prep material. Also, probably 8 or 9 illustrations. I passed
that exam. My score wasn't stellar. But I passed. And clearly, were it
not for your product, I would've failed. Motors #2 went much easier.
Probably fair to say it went as I was initially expecting it to.
Yesterday, I took Safety, that was smooth as glass.
I also took Generals yesterday and today, Electricity. I failed
Generals and Electricity. But... only because I didn't study for those
two subjects at all. My "plan" was to pass Motors 1 and 2 and Safety.
-Go back to work and study, return and take Generals and Electricity
tests again. This way it's easier to absorb all the material.

My point here is that since Motors #1 contained a number of questions
and illustrations that weren't in your software, -are there any
updates? Particularly for Generals and Electricity?
I'd appreciate hearing from you. As a Customer of yours, I also want
to mention that I've pointed many people to your web site.

I'm just trying to give myself everything I need to pass.

Thanks for your time, -and your product.

Nick Aguilera

Note: Nick informed me via e-mail that he passed General and Electrical on his second try.  We had sent him a second disk with more general questions and he said that made a big difference on passing the General portion of the test.  We have since split the Chief Limited and 3rd Enginner study disk into two separate study disk.  This change was in response to discussing the exams with exam takers.  Our updated Chief Limited gained 1000 questions and some new illustrations.  Our 3rd Assistant Engineer Unlimited gained the same 1000 general questions and an additonal 1000 motors questions and also new illustrations.  These changes have brought the U.S.C.G. exam scores up about 10% with most scores coming in at the mid 80% to 90% range.  Regardless of who's study material you use ensure your average scores are in the 90% range on  your practice exams before testing to ensure you have a margin for error.
