Description

This is a comprehensive study guide and exam application for sailors. It is loaded with almost 500 questions every sailor MUST know! Not only will this app help you prepare for the American Sailing Association Exams, it will keep you safer and more comfortable on the water!

Questions are divided into three categories of skill: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

The beginner section covers basic sailing questions typical of the American Sailing Association standard (ASA 101).

The intermediate section covers information needed for basic coastal cruising aboard larger vessels 20' or greater in length. These questions help prepare sailors for the ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising Exam. This section covers more advanced sailing information including weather and navigation off shore, such as aids to navigation.

The advanced section covers information for bare boat chartering, including living aboard a boat and understanding a cruising yacht's engine, galley, and other mechanical equipment. These questions help prepare sailors for the ASA 104 Bare Boat Chartering exam.

There is also a fourth section entitled additional skills which include important information about wind scales and hand signals.

Bug

:
Study guide not working.

3/5 stars

Helpful, not perfect

:
App is certainly helpful in studying and still worth buying, but here are a few negatives:
Example pictures are misleading, it's all text (or I don't remember any images).

It would be nice to take one test at a time (like ASA 101 only). 500 questions in one go is way too long of a testing feature to be useful. And it appears to grab from random categories so you effectively can't test in a particular section.

5/5 stars

Buy before chartering

:
Even though I already have Asa certification, I'm glad I had this app to review with before skippering my own personal charter?!
