Merchant Marine Deck Examination Illustration Book
1. PURPOSE . This publication contains illustrations needed by an applicant
during an examination for a merchant marine deck license or endorsement
on a merchant mariner's document.
2. DISCUSSION .
a. Applicants testing for merchant marine deck licenses and merchant
mariner's document endorsements may have to answer questions that
refer to an illustration or diagram. This publication contains
the illustrations needed.
b. The Coast Guard uses a computerized random generation system for
creating examination modules. To streamline the process of
creating module test booklets, the illustrations needed to answer
exam questions have been incorporated in examination illustration
books. This allows applicants to view both the exam question and
the illustration it may refer to at the same time.
