Upgrade E is a complete App designed to help you study and MASTER the U.S. Coast Guard Engine Exams for ALL licenses & QMED.

!!! Study and Test anywhere you go!!! WITHOUT INTERNET!!!

Studying for exams takes a lot of TIME! Between school, work, family and social time with friends things start to fall through the cracks. Many available study aids are great, but tie you to a desk chair and take a lot of time planning as well as having a high upfront cost to you. The books necessary are heavy and not very convenient to haul around with you. DON’T GET TIED DOWN STUDYING!

??? Have a moment to study??? Want to take a quick test while you’re…

* in the cab on the way to your ship?
* waiting on your instructor to show up to class?
* on the way to take your test? (Just not while driving!!)

It’s always with you!! Studying for Exams has never been more convenient to incorporate into your every day life!

** University Studies and Psychological Scientists have proven that Practice Testing is one of two of the most effective ways to study!

** “I've been showing everybody here your app and they love it. Most of the class is now using it along with several instructors.”

** “This app is everything you need to study for a license upgrade. My Murphy’s books sit untouched as I test over and over everywhere I go.”

Save money buy mariner advancement

Don't buy this. Put the money towards mariner advancement software instead. I bought it thinking it was a great deal to advance but was very wrong. Way too many issues with the app.

Save your money for now

This app has the potential to be great. Right now there are too many bugs with it though. It doesn't have nearly as many questions available as it should. Also not many of the illustrations are available so that was a letdown. Also the "tests" are all jacked up. For example if you try to take a test on "motors II" it will test you on safety. It also has glitches. For example when you try to take the motors 1 or steam 2 tests it just backs out of the app. If the bugs could get fixed it would be a fantastic resource well worth the money. But for now it is definitely not worth $30.

Upgrade E

This app has the potential to be great if it's the material that you need. I was in a pinch and looking to switch things up as far as study material goes, emailed them 2 times over 2 weeks and they never answered, so I downloaded it to test my luck... It's the material for the new testing "as of March 2014". So I gambled and lost.
