Ratings and Reviews
Has a lot of potential to be a great app. As of this review, the application is rules 1-4, 20-31 of Navigation Rules and Regulations, and a short quiz. You can buy the whole book for $9.50 on Amazon (rules 1-38, Annex’s, and 50 pages of additional information).
The book only has pictures in black and white, so the examples in the book are not very useful. I purchased this app hoping there would be colored pictures
If the developers of this app provide colored examples I would recommend this app to others. Unfortunately, there are NO pictures. If the app ever adds pictures examples of the lights in color, it will be worth it.
Great - wish I’d found this before
Comprehensive info on navlights and day shapes with a really useful test section. Covers a lot, and has very clear diagrams of how the lights will look, as well as the written official regs. A good purchase.
I found at least one error in one of the test questions. I don't want to use an app that is going to sabotage me. Test Yourself Q7, the correct answer should be "NOT making way NUC" but "Making way NUC" is listed as the correct answer. Not reliable.
