My question is: for those of you have recently (last year or two) taken the ASA
exams, are the written exams very similar to the review questions/quizzes in the study books
? Or, are the reviews
in the books
much more detailed and more thorough than the actual ASA exams?
I'll do well no matter what, as I'm studying hard....I'm just trying to gage the extent of the exams and ease my anxieties.
Are you taking the courses and exams without the sailing class?
I took the classes
mostly because I love to sail.
We, the class mates and I, did a study session with someone who had the exam in advance; and the instructor went over the questions that were difficult. They were a combination of the workbook questions, combinations of that/them; and information surrounding the information in the book that was on the sample questions in the workbook quizzes.
questions were the most practical and difficult, overall it was information found in the book on and off the subject of the quizzes, like and more compound than the quizzes, T and F . . . then that 20 page dissertation at the end . . . Whew! That lecto/recto was hard to do manually. But, when they dropped me onto that 60 foot schooner from the helicopter and I had to onehand my way home in the fog
at 10 PM, I knew they were serious. But with the leech purchase
, or was it the luff purchase
. . . um. Better know what's in the book. 'Cuz, I'm still on the boat.
