Two Week Quiz for Immersive Course

(Three Week Quiz for App/Ipad)

Less than 2 weeks to go now till the oral prep, I hope all is going well and that you are making good progress with the Kindle. 

I have spent a long time trying to work out the best way to help students revise and be ready for the prep course. It is a common problem; what to study, how long and to what detail. I do know that the students who have managed to read the kindle from start to end and have looked at the checklists in the bridge procedure book, seem to pass first time and have had an enjoyable oral prep course which in turn leads to a better exam experience. 

With this in mind I wrote the kindle notes and added the source material, I really hope it is working for you. 

I have also recently re designed my quizzes to allow you to self test and gauge how you are doing. 

The system will allow you 4 goes, so thats plenty of attempts prior to the arrival in Cowes (or iPad/App). You can hopefully take the test, read the feedback and then spend some self study to find the answers. 

If you have any questions please email.

I am aware that some of the questions that allow you to write the answer may mark incorrectly. Please don’t be disheartened. The quiz is for you to know if you are going in the right direction, not how well you do by a number.

 I would also like to remind you to make sure you know:

  • Rules of the road, lights and shapes, sound signals. Rule 5, 6, 19 word perfect use my Quiz app for this!
